We enjoyed superb meal here. Cream of Celery soup, Veal and dessert to die for. Compliments to the chef. He does a great job and the staff serving were very helpful. They printed an English version of the menu for us which was very much appreciated.

This is a very nice place in a cool location. The overall atmosphere is really warm and somewhat exciting and the service is warm, welcoming and very well matching the impression and the expectation. The menu is ok but the raw materials are definitely not at the level. Both prawns and beef do not have plenty of taste and flavor,... More

The restaurant is located at the Masschee lake, a little below the old city centre of Hannover (20 min walk), and offers a great view from both inside and out on the terrace, especially during sunset. The staff is very friendly and works quickly. The menu they have doesn't offer the widest selection (4 meat, 4 fish for main), but... More

We hosted a dinner for 16 and I must say I am impressed. We had a wonderful evening outside as the weather was pretty warm so if you can in summertime have a table outside the view is pretty nice. When we came all was arranged, first drinks came fast, glasses were always refilled in a prompt manner, all staff... More

Well we enjoyed a good cold night in the inside of the restaurant at winter, the food is good and delicious though a bit expensive, good eine selection, in summer days is the restaurant at best to seat outdoors and enjoy the view of the Maschsee

I was visiting a friend in Hannover and after being out for a bike ride saw Pier 51 and thought about eating there looking over the lake. They weren't open for another hour but kept us a table free and the food was fantastic. Perfectly cooked fish, well seasoned starters and great pasts. The serving staff were helpful, polite and...

Our group of 8 had dinner here on a perfect summer evening. We sat outside and the kids played nearby until dinner came. The salad was exploding with different flavors in each bite and had the most wonderful goat cheese in it...my mouth is watering just thinking about it. And then the truffle gnocchi - like little pillows of heaven!... More

The restaurant is located on the lake (Maschsee). There is an excellent view of the lake from the extended platform. The food is good. I had opted for German food. The service was prompt and friendly.
