I loved the maritime décor that is a tribute to Hamburg's history. I enjoyed a delicious veal schnitzel dinner. The cucumber salad was very good. Service was prompt and efficient.

We came across this restaurant by chance and we are so glad that we did. The interior is different with seats at some tables resembling high backed church pews. We loved the atmosphere with its nautical theme. Our waiter couldn’t have been better, he was friendly, efficient and even brought us a sample of one of the starters, Labskaus, to let us try it. It was tasty ( reminded me a bit of corned beef hash) but we decided on the shared starter, Gourmet Teller. My wife had Wiener Schnitzel and I had the Fischteller for the main course. The food was delicious! Overall, a wonderful experience !

We weren't able to reserve a table on a Saturday night but turned up anyway and were seated immediately. Excellent food for a decent price and the beer was great too. We had the Jaegerschnitzel and the Schweinefilets - both were fantastic. Excellent service too, the food came very quickly! Definitely worth a visit.

The decor made from oak beams, salvaged from ancient wrecks and marine artefacts from around the world, all add to the ambience in this lovely restaurant, directly opposite Hamburg central station. Try the Gourmetteller, with: shrimps, gravad laks and roast beef and of course, as you are in Hamburg, a Bismarck Herring. They serve draft local beer and a good selection of wines (glass of wine €5), we can recommend a glass or two of Grauburgunder, a very elegant white wine. This became our favourite restaurant in Hamburg, with three visits over the course of a long weekend. They offer fish and chips at a very reasonable price, and pan-fried fish, with 3 sorts of fish and pan-fried potatoes with Speck (lardons). For the adventurous amongst you, then I recommend that you try the “Labscous”, a favourite, quickly-made meal for mariners, made from ground beef, beetroot juice and potatoes covered with a fried egg and served with sour gherkins, and a herring “roll-mops” – it’s worth a try – honestly, it was delicious!

The TripAdvisor picture for Schiffer Borse is soooo misleading... This place is actually what should be called a northern German cuisine restaurant. Meat and schnitzel are accompanied by fish and whatever else you'd expect in a city of sailors (hard liquor - you guessed it!). Herring for starter was very good. Local beer (Duckstein) is great. I went for the surf & turf compromise and was more than satisfied by how it tasted and how it was served. Spinach won the unexpected Oscar for best supporting role ;-)
Can only recommend the place and Williamsbirne as closing taste. Prices are moderate for taste and size of the portions. Service was uber-polite and uber-helpful!
