We enjoyed a wonderful dinner in a romantic setting with a perfect view over the harbor area. The food was of the highest quality and the service even better.

2nd visit and was looking forward to the same dish as had before, an enormous ‘Plaice’, however this time whilst the fish was of ample proportion t’was not in the same league as overdone something you just cannot do with fish.

Excellent restaurant for traditional fish dishes. There is a fairly large selection. The starters are attractive as well. I like this restaurant particularly because it serves the only really good oysters so far as I know in Hamburg: imperial. The Ambiente is really nice, attentive...service. Definitely my favourite in Hamburg. Have never been disappointed.More

I had the pleasure to be invited to this excellent place during my trip end of November 2019. I love fish and sea fruit and in Germany it is sometimes very difficult to find a great restaurant for this. I was totally blown away by...Fischereihafen Restaurant: from the Service, the view and the yummy food. We had a 4 course menue and every single dish was delicious. I really appreciated the excellent service, we felt very welcomed and served on a high level, even the owner showed up to greet us. On my next trip to Hamburg I will make sure to book a table. For those who value extraordinary service and food should definetly plan in a visit to this Restaurant.More

Since I know this restaurant it’s my favourite in Hamburg. I return there every time I am in town. My latest visit did not disappoint me. The interior is nice, comfortable. The main room is at the waterfront. This time I had eel, excellent quality....This restaurant has the best oysters in Hamburg, although a bit too expensive. But for the rest the elevated prices are justified by the quality of the dishes. The menu is quite extensive. Sweets are excellent as well.More

Excellent food and in beautiful upscale surroundings! It is considered the best Fish and Sea Food restaurant in town and they duly deserve it. Big Menu, excellent quality, good wine selection and very prompt/pleasant service. Highly recommended.

We scurried in here with lots of people when it started to rain, lucky to get a seat by the window. We only stayed for a drink but what we enjoyed was the wait staff who maintained a sense of humor despite the crowd, and...the view.More

All dishes were nicely prepared, the chairs were comfortable, the ambience pleasant, and the view nice. What spoiled our two person 139 Euro experience ( one glass wine each) was the slowness and surliness of our waiter. He came 15 minutes after our arrival and...dropped menus for us on the table, and then immediately asked what we wanted before we had even opened them. We advised we needed to look at the menu first. Once our main courses arrived, he disappeared and we never saw him again — not to check if we liked our food or needed anything else, not to ask if we wanted wine refills, not to ask about dessert. We sat another 25 minutes after we had finished eating and finally a waitress came around and cleared our table. It was as if the waiter had a personality disorder. Other waiters seemed friendly so I might try the place again. Herring appetizer was good. The sole Meuniere was awesome ( though very, very expensive).More
