In summary: A nice location for after-work drinks if you're happy to pay for the privilege. More details: We chose Marlin for a business dinner on a sunny evening; the large open terrace is great in warm weather with lots of tables and benches under large parasols. There is a large grassy area where children were running about and lots... More

On former military grounds with buildings filled with start-ups. The restaurant is light and the strong nautical theme leaves no mistaking this is a fish restaurant. The lunch menu, in contrast, is 50/50 fish/non-marine dishes.The three of us had the dish with chantarelles and fish (sole or salmon) and they were okay. The place was full and this is perhaps...

A group of us ate at this restaurant. The service and ambiance were excellent. I am not a big fish fan, but the non fish dishes were very good and I understand the fish dishes were excellent.

I dined here with some German business colleagues who had recommended the restaurant. As noted in other reviews it is an interesting building, and I suspect, it is not going to be found by passers-by. The fish served was very good. We Think that I had Monkfish but we were translating from the German menu so we weren't completely certain... More

Lovely food, good service and pleasant surroundings. Quite noisy which is a result of its popularity. I would be happy to eat here again.

Went here last year on a business trip. The restaurant is in an old tank track factory. Great atmosphere, nice surrounding, great food especially if you enjoy fish.

During my two years of traveling to Germany I ate at the Marlin only once. I only didn't return because of the cost and not because of the food. I had a Filet and it ranks as one of the best steaks I have ever had. I tried a salad with Tiger Shrimp, Squash Soup and vegetables. The service was... More

The restaurant is not as easy to locate as one would imagine so be on the lookout if not being driven there by a knowledgeable taxi driver. Arrived for dinner without reservations and was seated immediately. It was a weeknight around 7pm and the place was about 25% full. There were a number of interesting items on the menu, but... More

This restaurant is serving mostly fish and seafood. There are couple of meat dishes for those who 'hate fish' as the menu says. Fresh food, good service and nice atmosphere. The restaurant is not really visible from the street so you cant end up here by chance. Good wine list with reasonable prices. We went there on a Tuesday night... More
