Lovely speakeasy bar: Le Lion • Bar de Paris (5. July 2017)

Over the past two years, I became a big fan of speak easy bars as they often invest more time and dedication into the drinks they serve. The Le Lion is somehow clearly noticeable from the outside but it isn’t obvious it’s a public bar. Once you’ve passed the bouncer (okay, let’s say ‘the guy […]

When the food is better than expected: Restaurant Eppo @ Dorint Hotel Hamburg (9. February 2017)

While I as rather skeptical about what would expect me, I must admit that – in the very end – I was positively surprised by the offer the Restaurant Eppo in the Dorint Hotel had to offer. For lunch we were served a salad with some apricot chutney which was unexpected but I definitely liked […]

Rather limited breakfast but amazing suite: east Restaurant @ east Hotel (9. February 2017)

The “breakfast selection” (EUR 19.50) for hotel guests is quite decent but overall rather limited. I mean, you get everything from a nice selection of tea to … … a couple of other things like yogurts, fresh fruit, porridge, as well as fresh vegetables … … and cereals. But overall, the selection of dishes looks […]

Newly opened and already looks old: The Bridge Bar @ The Westin Hamburg (5. November 2016)

The “Moscow Mule” (EUR 11.50) does not only come in a lovely glass but is also super tasty. And while it was only the second evening the bar was open, the service generally functioned well – given you were ready to take some “waiting time” into consideration. While the elements served on the table are […]

When the service is not up to the task: Restaurant Heimat Küche + Bar (5. November 2016)

As there was so much going on that weekend in Hamburg, it was almost impossible to score a table at any of the top restaurants in the city. After calling approximately 15 restaurants, I finally gave up and started wandering around HafenCity. And we ended up at the Heimat Küche + Bar in the 25hours […]

The new Westin Club – lacking atmosphere: Westin Club @ The Westin Hamburg (5. November 2016)

I am a huge fan of Starwood and its properties and you can imagine my excitement to actually experience a hotel opening (my first so far) and I was really positively surprised about the lovely welcoming, check-in, and the amazing Panorama Suite (#1116). However, I had my issues with the Westin Club. Once I finally […]

Nice breakfast selection: Restaurant The Saffron @ The Westin Hamburg (5. November 2016)

The Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg has become a sign for bad architectural planning and budgeting. But finally, after I don’t know how many years, the Elbphilarmonie opened. And with it, The Westin Hamburg opened too. I had the pleasure to spend the opening nights there and definitely loved the hotel. On Saturday, it was time to […]

Simple and tasty dishes for lunch: Restaurant Quan Do (24. June 2016)

The “Bun Bó with lemon grass, beef, and peanuts” (EUR 7.90) is an interesting dish. While it looks quite nice and actually the ingredients themselves are tasty too, the liquid which is served with it and then poured over the dish kind of makes it taste funny. For me personally, the taste is too much […]
