On 2 – March, 2017 I had the pleasure of dinning at Franziskaner in Hamburg, Germany. The vienerschnitzel is so tender that it melts in your mouth. Paired with a side of fries and dark Lowenbrau, this makes for an exquisite meal. The portions were ample. The wait staff is attentive and friendly. Prices are very reasonable. This restaurant is...

I loved this little restaurant; the ambience was great, the hospitality was superb and the food which was reasonably priced and generously portioned was also very good. I did struggle slightly with my dish because the mashed potatoes were substituted for boiled potatoes (because of my dairy allergy) and I found them a little dry after a while but there... More

Looking at the menu, I thought this may be a gem. How wrong I was. The food here is not good at all. Very dry, with little taste to anything. No problems with service, and reasonably priced, just not good. Sourkraut tasted litake it was made in a shoe!

After a busy day sightseeing and shopping we were looking for somewhere to eat in Hamburg City centre on a Saturday early evening. Most places that we tried were fully booked and we came across this place at 6.30 pm, which we thought was only a bar and ventured in for a drink. The place was quite busy therefore we... More

The Käsespätzle was amazing. It's been nearly a decade since I was in Munich and it pbrought me right back. The staff were perhaps a little cold but very authentic (from what I remember). My wife also enjoyed her meal and the beer was fantastic.

Went for dinner at a busy time of the year on a Friday night and the wait time for the food was over an hour. Has a great selection of German classics though and they're done right. Maybe a bit on the pricier side when considering all of Germany but probably par for the course in Hamburg. Go hungry because... More

A nice traditional Bavarian pub that serves all the food and beer you would expect. Probably an older clientele and a little touristy but pleasant staff and lots of space.
