I visited this restaurant in July with my boyfriend.
I booked this restaurant before our flight to Bremen after seeing it had be rated number 1 on trip advisor, it was our first visit to Bremen. Initially it was fully booked to my dismay but I later received an email to be told there was a cancellation and that they would accommodate us.

We ordered a taxi to the restaurant from our hotel, I don't know Bremen well since it was the first visit to this city but it was in a quiet street - straight away we knew it'd be a hidden gem.

Upon arrival we were politely welcomed and shown to our table. The restaurant is small and romantic, it was also full of German's which can only be a positive sign.

The food is absolutely divine. Having eaten at some of London's top Michelin star restaurants (not to mention overpriced) we were both in agreement that the quality, taste and presentation of the food here was possibly the best we've ever experienced.

We shared the starter - fennel and sander fish - delicious.
For main I ordered seared leg of wildester deer with savoy cabbage roasted almonds and sweet potatoes and balsamic, the meat was perfectly cooked, melting on tongue with intense flavours.
James ordered beef tenderloin with foie gras tortellini, chanterelle mushrooms and sugar snap peas and was equally delighted by his menu choice.

This is Michelin star quality without the price tag. I would return to Bremen only to dine at this amazing restaurant again.

an incredible evening - thanks.

The restaurant is by far the best restaurant in Bremen. We live in London and whenever we are in Bremen, this is the restaurant we have to come to.

We have been to this restaurant 5 times over the past few years and each time we are never disappointed. In fact, each time we attend, the food gets more and more exceptional..
This time, we came for the new year's eve dinner, which was a six course spectacular.

As we are regulars - as one can be coming from London - they made an English version of the special menu for me. This was a lovely touch and shows the level of detail the front of house goes to.

The first course after the amuse bouche was the smoked eel soup and smoked fish. Simply divine. The second course was lobster with salsify and seafood foam. Delicious.
The third course of scallops, sea urchin foam, winter truffle and artichokes was perfect. The fourth course of fried foie gras with a dark beer reduction was impressive. The fourth dish of deer with artichokes, brussel sprout leaves and chestnuts, looked and tasted fantastic. The fifth course of melted Faleggio cheese, olive bread and tomato was a nice interlude before the delicious desert of a chocolate mousse tart with passion fruit ice cream.


The Chef Mr Ladenberger is a master of combining flavors and textures together.
The price maybe high compared to other restaurants in Bremen, but this is Michelin star quality without the kudos.

We have been to several one, two and three star restaurants around the world and this little restaurant on the back streets of Bremen is up there with them.

Go, you will not be disappointed.

We booked the restaurant on a Sunday night for 27 people and they opened it specially for us which was really nice of them. We took their gourmet menu and ordered the wine from the wine list which showed the actual labels of the wines - a good idea as the labels contained all the information one wanted to know about the wine. Service was excellent and attentive and the food was delicious. We pre-ordered 27 servings, but only 23 of us showed up. At the end, they insisted on charging us for 27 persons.
