Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is an attractive looking restaurant. Great lighting and stylish decor .. food didn’t match up though. I started with the asparagus and egg soft boiled egg salad .. this was a huge disappointment- cold and barely cooked with a basic vinaigrette and an egg...that was hard boiled - entirely not what I was expecting. Followed by a very average schnitzel, accompanied by a very boring cucumber and potato salad that I left ..More

Food quality was poor. When making a reservation, they said all times were full so we had to go at 7:00. No one was in the restaurant and as we dined only a few more tables filled up. The service had an attitude. It is...certainly not number 4 in the city that aligns with most trip advisor rankings. I don’t know what the Bar is like because it had a private function that evening.More

Reviews on Trip Advisor led us to try this unusual restaurant, attached to the Theatre, during the Domotex exhibition. Booking from abroad and subsequently changing the number of people three times was easily accomplished and replies came swiftly. The atmosphere was good and as a...party of Twelve we were well looked after. The menu choice is quite limited but there was meat fish and vegetarian to go at. The quality of the food was good. Prices were not overly expensive. Overall we enjoyed our visit and will return next year, however do not imagine a wide a la carte menu.More

Semi chique, food is ok. They try to be a chique restaurant with specific wine recommendations, but it is just a regular restaurant. Do not know why it has so high rating.

Average food, average service and nothing extraordinary. In the beginning I was impressed that you could pick the ingredients of your dish and will be cooked for you but the end result was not really what I had hoped for.

Did some research prior to our visit to Hannover, and booked a table for three in advance. The restaurant is located in the basement below the variety club, and was pretty much full when we arrived. Apart from the tables for couples, all of the...tables are well spaced, so although you feel very much aware you are in a lively and thriving restaurant, you have ample space. The head waiter/manager served us for most of the meal and was very helpful and convivial. The food was excellent all through. The classic prawn cocktail had a little twist with more colourful and tasty salad leaves, and the smoked salmon mousse was also excellent. My wife and I both had fish for the main, and both were really tasty and well presented. I wasn't quite sure my meal matched the menu description, but it was very good all the same. Perhaps being British with very, very poor German, something was lost in translation. We had been very keen to try some German wine, since we don't get much choice of German wine in the UK, and the recommended Weissburgunder-Riesling was a really great accompanying wine for the fish, being a good dry wine. We concluded the meal with the deconstructed Snicker. It was quite small and well presented, and was just what you wanted to follow the other two courses. You didn't feel too stuffed. At this stage the restaurant emptied for the variety show, so we had a relaxed coffee. After we paid, the head waiter/manager brought us all a complementary snaps. We really appreciated the extra touch to conclude a very fine meal.More
