Not sure whether it is on the famous (before you kick the) bucket list but according to my colleagues a must see on Sylt. Supposedly the hippest place, stage for the rich and famous and allegedly known for the perfect Currywurst. Well, seen that / done that, but a mystery why people would go there again. Highly professional waiters navigating... More

Apparently this place is quite popular and thus it has a nice vibe... We only had some nibbles which were fine but nothing special. If I didn't know that place was so "must" I would have not been considering visiting again. It also has direct access to the beach which is nice.

Great place with an incredible mood! Vibrant, loud, always busy. Here you can see couples, big families, Birthday parties. And it's creating such a warm, relaxing, friendly atmosphere, that you want to come back. The restaurant located close to the sea.

We enjoyed an incredible variety of amazing and delicious homemade food in a great atmosphere! Sitting out in sand, sun shining and tasting the worlds best curry wurst or enjoying fresh rolls with mango jam, scrambled eggs with bacon, fresh brewed coffee and so on and so on. Very friendly and attentive waiters and also fair prices.

We were 22 people having dinner at this place. Amazing crew and great food.you have to try fries with truffle oil and parmesan cheese...it's just super delicious. The restaurant is placed at one of the most popular beaches in sylt. Cool it long before so you get a table. Inside can be too hot as its always crowded...

Sylt and Sansibar. What a wonderful place on the edge of earth. A wonderful vibe and welcoming feeling. Nice balance between new and old, tourist and local, and the best veal schnitzel paired with an amazing german white wine. Yum!! You have to get your head around the wait but worth to experience what the local tourists enjoy!!

Perfect location right at the beach. The food is a bit pricey but so worth it. Had a strawberry drink which was really good and the fish was tasty
