Rather regular Portuguese food with below-average service: Restaurant Vasco da Gama (30. September 2017)

In the 20+ times I’ve been to Hamburg, I have passed by the Vasco da Gama a couple of times but somehow never ended up in there. Finally, it was time to give it a try. As I was starving, I decided to get some “Aioli” (EUR 2.00) with bread and it was a good […]

Quite amazing meat in the middle of nowhere in Hamburg: Restaurant Arizona Steak-House (2. September 2017)

Quite amazing meat in the middle of nowhere in Hamburg: Restaurant Arizona Steak-House (2. September 2017)

I guess I would never have entered the Arizona Steak-House. Not because of the place but because it is rather remote, i.e. far from the city centre. However, given we were there in the context of a bachelor party and the bachelor eats there quite often, we ended up there. The place is loud, full, […]

Surprisingly decent beer house in Hamburg: Restaurant Hofbräu Esplande (2. September 2017)

Surprisingly decent beer house in Hamburg: Restaurant Hofbräu Esplande (2. September 2017)

I was not aware that there was a Hofbräuhaus in Hamburg – but hey, there is always the time when you learn something new. Somehow not so surprising, it was almost empty when we entered it on a sunny Saturday afternoon and ordered a “Jausen Brett (meat paste, bacon, pepper biter, cold roast, obadzda, leberkäs, […]

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

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)

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)

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 […]
