Had a business meal here with 30 colleagues and was pleasantly surprised at the great service and quality of the food. Fish is excellent, good presentation, try the sole, it is a large portion. Good selection of wines.

Well-known, established fish restaurant right at Niendorfer Hafen. Unfortunately, they seem to be resting a bit on their reputation. The fish is all right, but nothing special any more. They used to have the best, freshest fish. But now it's just an ok fish restaurant charging rather high prices (22€ for a tuna tartare - really!?). Much better to buy... More

Came here on suggestion of our hotel. Very friendly service and the food was tasty at a reasonable price. Especially the fish soup was a pleasant surprise. Recommended.

Went for lunch with a group of five. Service was great, menu choices plentiful. I had the local fish - it was very flavorful and fresh. Subtracting one star because it seems very pricey and the ambiance is not 5 stars. Some people in our group had the duck and loved it as well. I tried a different restaurant nearby... More

My spouse and I tried some "touristic" restaurants we finally received the advise to try the Fischkiste in Niendorf: The fish is definitely the best as it comes straight from the fishing harbor just opposite the restaurant. Menu is focusing mainly on local fish dishes but the quality, freshness and the preparation is fantastic! A few observations: - Prices are... More

This restaurant has a lot of hype behind it - but that doesn't hide the fact that food here is only average and the prices too high. I paid 120 Euros for my partner and I in August, for mediocre salmon, potatoes and salad. Had a portion each of their child-garlic scampi. We asked the waiter if we could have... More

This area is very well known for it's Fisch. Go for the Seezunge if they have it. Make sure to have the delicious german cucumber salad and potato salad that they serve here as well. Very traditional Northern german restaurant. Matrosen style!
