Description: Let your spirit flow right in the centre of Hamburg - a harmonious atmosphere and good service - that's what the ALEX Hamburg in the Alsterpavillon stands for.

I love the location of this restaurant. I visited 3 times with varying experiences each time. The first on a weekday for the breakfast buffet was excellent - a great value. The second for a snack of bruschetta and a glass of wine was also very nice. The third was disappointing - Easter Monday with holiday pricing. I do not think I received good value on the 3rd visit.

I always liked this place, been here a few times. They have good food, nothing extraordinary but the variety of choice is big. Usually crowded, very nice if you manage to get a place at the window, or you can also make a reservation before.

I understand that the location of the ALEX is in fact great. However, the prices for what they offer are ridiculous
The food has been constantly declining in quality. It's always quite packed, would put it in the category "tourist trap". There are plenty better and nicer places around. The brunches buffet is the only thing worth considering a visit. The brunch is the only reason I givr 3 stars instead of 2

A perfect spot at the Alster. Nice interior, rather posh than cosy. We only grabbed a coffee, but there was a weekend brunch available (Sat and Sun only, €10.90 incl. a glass of orange juice) - no other food available during the brunch. Very crowded, we were lucky but I recommend a reservation. The service was cold and... well, only the-very-necessary-level-friendly (unlike their "colleagues" from Potsdamer Platz in Berlin). But still - do it anyway, the view is definitely worth it!

Sat outside at the front of the restaurant, the waiter was extremely friendly and attentive which added to our experience. We sat down as the restaurant was coming to the end of the breakfast menu, our waiter was very informative and said he would get us drinks and then take our order for lunch once the menu changed over. Even double checking on our order as he thought the food came out a little later than he expected. Great service and would definitely recommend.
