This is a really lovely traditional style Lubeck restaurant serving local dishes and regional favourites. Specialising in seafood (which is excellent), the staff are friendly and it's not overly expensive, but is at the slightly more expensive end.

Came here as after having read the good TA reviews, and we were looking for something traditional German and a good wienerschnitzel, and we were not disappointed! Basically, we got what we came for. Big portions as well. ++ Atmosphere in an old historical building. Why not 5 points? Well, it didn't feel so personal, because the restaurant is so... More

I'd heard about this place many months before coming to Lübeck, and was excited that it was chosen for our social night out. Our group of 18 piled into one of the long tables, admiring the coat hooks that make everything easy, and the historic decor. The menu is huge, and a little daunting, particularly if you don't speak German... More

We had good traditional "Labskaus" after our business meeting. The food is very good and the service was pretty good as well. The atmosphere in the ancient restaurant is marvellous.

The decor here is fantastic. Boats suspended from the ceiling, a chandelier of candles, one tables with pews on either side. The menu is presented in the form of a newspaper with loads of choice, reasonably priced. Food was tasty. Three of us had dishes from the regional menu. Nicely cooked and presented. Fair sized portions. Service friendly and timely.... More

If you could only chose one place to eat, then make it the Schiffergesellschaft. A brilliant old restaurant that dates back hundreds of years with a great traditional German menu and a massive slice of history in the actual restaurant. We spent most of our time transfixed by the dinning hall and decor. A truly wonderful experience and one that... More

Here, you get food that is not overpriced. Yet it is not gourmet as in a Michelin restaurant. We had typical german food (e.g. Wiener schnitzel with fries). Rather than just the food, you should go here to take a look at the very original interior design.

I've been here a few times now and love the history and tradition of the place. It is such an amazing atmosphere. The food is very good, staff very friendly and professional - but the best is really the 'decoration' which is partly as old as the whole place. It is absolutely worthwhile to talk to the staff about it... More

Old style German restaurant with ships hanging from the roof. Swift but discrete service and excellent wienerschnizel.
