The perfect place. Great food we had roasted eel with dill and parsley potatoes. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The greatest is the atmosphere. 500 years of history preserved everywhere in the restaurant. A really unique place.

We were welcomed by a very polite and friendly waiter who helped us all pick the yummiest dishes. The fish was very very good, and the sides were very nice. The ambience is incredible and it is a "must" in Luebeck. There's something for everyone, and everything (we had 4 different dishes at our table) was very good.

My partner booked us a table at Schiffergesellschaft for our anniversary dinner. The place has a great history and is wonderfully decorated. Our food was delicious (definitely get the grünkohl if you visit in winter) and they had a great selection of wine. The prices are definitely higher than a typical German restaurant, especially in an area such as Lübeck,... More

This menu was extensive and offered none of the typical schnitzel, spaetzel, or speissbraten. I had duck (ente) which was phenomenal. The hardest part was picking a dish from their endless selection. I could easily have gone here for a week and tried authentic German every day. Highly recommended!

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
