Last time we visited Rostock, we tried to get a table with just a few hours' notice. Impossible. This time, I ordered a month in advance, and I am so glad I did. Borwins is without a doubt among the top 5 seafood restaurants I have eaten at, worldwide. Excellent service, fantastic food, and a very attentive staff. And at... More

The restaurant was really cosy. The food and the service were great. We tried both fish and meat. The best one was the fish with chorizo-lentils sauce !! Really recommended !!

Excellent fish restaurant at the waterfront. We enjoyed it so much we went back there the second night of our stay in Rostock! Fine food, friendly service, nice wine list. Not cheap, but value for money. One negative remark: nearly too dark to read the menu! We needed the candle on the table to read…

Really good food and service. Good prices. Apparently some of the seafood comes from Canada, so I assume frozen, but they were really well cooked. I strongly recommend it :)

haven't been to Germany for quiet some time . . this was just the perfect place to have dinner at a mild late summer evening. The place is really charming and reflects a special flair, couches & chairs placed in a way that makes the place looks like a big living / dining room. Not surprised that the food was... More

We wanted to celebrate our 10 year anniversary while in the port of Warnemunde while on a Baltic cruise. We took the train to Rostock and enjoyed a nice lunch at Borwin Hafenrestaurant along the waterfront. I had sussed out restaurant reviews beforehand and we were not disappointed with our choice. The little restaurant doesn't look that exciting from the... More

Located right on the water a few steps from the city marina. When the weather is nice, they serve in several outside areas. On a cold, wet summer evening, there is only the main building. Charming, warm and welcoming. Good efficient service. The menu offers fresh fish by weight, but we chose from the menu. The grilled seafood starter with... More

Very nice and cozy restaurant by the water. Decent prices for excellent dishes if you compare to UK or Scandinavia value for money. The restaurant was full on a Monday evening but we were seated in less then 10 minutes wait. Waiter offered very good and friendly service even if there were a few language barriers.

Cozy restaurant with old-fashioned decor. For starters we took buffalo mozzarella and then a whole dorade with fried potatoes and green beans with bacon. And a bottle of chilled Riesling. Wonderful. Everything was absolutely top class and the price was very low for such wonderful food.
