“One of the best Fish restaurants in Northern Germany”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2013

Not only was the service excellent, but each of the meals we (a group of five) ate was first-rate cooked, had a special touch, and moreover was also enough food to satisfy a hungry stomach (which is not always the case in establishments that received top-10 honors from international gourmet-magazines). The decoration (old seamen's barter pay for dood and rum, like spears from Kongo, turtle-casks, etc., in large numbers, plus enormous Rum-bottles froom the times Flensburg had the rum-monopoly for Denmark) is rustic and very consistent and cozy. It gives the place an atmosphere of both, distinction from tradition and welcoming warmth.
The prices are absolutely adequate to the quality, but therefore also not on the lower side. But ca. 20 EUR/person, one drink included, seems really accessible for the performance of kitchen and the cellar. My recommendation is to visit this place for a special evening. My guess is that the non-fish platters will be OK, too, but the Flensburger Fischplatte and various flounders were spectacular.

1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013

We what's going to this restaurant because recommendation from trip adviser.
Very disappoint on the service.
We just come in to the restaurant and my wife by mistake close one light
The service people immodestly say very sharp you can not do.
Of course we know but we did not do it for any reason.

Any way we will not go there again

“Good fish restaurant with nice decoration”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2012

Sitting on the north coast of the Foerde, just across the street from the water this restaurant is pretty well known by business travellers.

It does offer an extensive menu on fish, most of them fresh (of course fish is a seasonal product) an a vey nicely decorated (for my taste a bit toto decorated) little house. Seating is upstairs and downstairs.

They know pretty well how to prepare fish and even though it is "only" the classical northern Germany way of preparing it means a lot of good fish with very good pairings and large portions as well. Not the cheapest restuarant to go to but for fishlovers certainly a place to go to.

The service is friendly and fast even though for some guests it may come out a bit of unfriednly but in northern Germany people talk in a direct way.
