“A wonderful food experience”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

That is a perfect restaurant in a lovely town. You can have a la carte,3,5 or 7(a Suprise Menu)dishes. We chosen a Suprise Menu. It is fun because you do not know what you get and what wines will you taste with the food. Everything we got was delicious. I was very happy that nearly all wines I tried were made in Germany and only one was from Greece. We spent there a few amazing hours and left it in high spirits.

“Great gourmet Restaurant”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

Fantastic food, great environment in an old upscale house. Service was attentive and discrete (which is good since sometimes too many attentions from waiters can become annoying and suffocating). The wines were also very good especially the riesling. Overall a good experience tempered by the high price. Recommended for a special occasion. Word of warning for the commoners : portions are small and a formal attire is recommended.

“Outstanding”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

Every now and then a restaurant manage to deliver a truly epic performance. Right from the start it was clear that this was such a night. We had the five-course menu and it was absolutely outstanding. Exceptionally well adjusted dishes where the main ingredient in each dish was really allowed to shine. Delivered with a friendly, confident service where a few language difficulties with the menu was sorted out with a few laughs (please never translate your menus, you are in Germany after all :-)

What made the night truly special for me was the wines that followed each dish. Each wine was distinct and augmented the dish in a truly unique way.

Though I've experienced more outstanding presentation at other michelin-starred restaurants (most notably at Oscarsgate in Oslo) I will still rate Wullenwever higher due to the perfect match of food and wine.

“Fantastic food in an intimate setting”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

On our wedding anniversary my husband and I were visiting Lubeck and decided to treat ourselves to dinner at this Michelin-starred restaurant. We were not disappointed! The setting is very intimate and the food was excellent. We chose the 3-course menu with matching wines. Unlike other restaurants offering selected wines with a meal, this was not limited to a single glass per course. On the contrary, the attentive waitress offered a refill as soon as the glass was empty. This did lead to a slightly unsteady walk back to our hotel! My husband speaks no German and there was no menu in English, but this was no problem. If my German failed me, the waitress was on hand to explain and translate, so I would recommend other visitors, even non-German speakers, to visit this restaurant for a special meal.

“Very nice, but a night with a star?”
Reviewed August 9, 2012 via mobile

We do understand why Michelin gives Wullenwever a star, but we think the restaurant may have to try a bit harder to maintain the star. The restaurant is nice, and the service is pleasant and informal, although they occassionally could be more attentive. The food was good, perticularly our two starters. Especially the parsly root and truffle cappucino was excellent, and the tuna tartar with Granny Smith was very good. The black spring chicken (swarzes huhn), however, was very ordinary. All in all a pleasant evening. Nevertheless our feeling was that there is room for improvement, improvements which would secure the Michelin star.
