“Best fish in town!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

The best place in town to taste fish! Typically very busy environment but there's no better place to taste fresh fish! Forget the menu and ask the Italian owner for this daily suggestion, you won't regret it!

“Wonderful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014

We were in Dusseldorf for a total of 5 nights and ate here for three of them. It can get a bit crowded at times which, in turn, can mean a bit of a wait (as well as a lively background noise of customers talking). Also, we found the price of drinks to be slightly above average (as far as one can make a comparison after only four days).

However, if you like fish, eat here! The selection is amazingly comprehensive and the fish is beautiful.

Just try it – you will not be disappointed. Anything less than 5 'stars' would be unfair.

“Very fresh seafood but too crowded”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2014 via mobile

I ate there several times: in winter and in sommer, inside and outside, at lunch and at dinner, on a working day and in the weekend. It is always croweded. Maybe because it is the old town, maybe because there are not so many seafood reastaurants, maybe because it is quite known.
FISH IS VERY FRESH and you can also see it with your own eyes, as there's a glass counter just near the entrance.
Most of the dishes are grilled fish types, but there are also other recipes; some of them do not change and some others change regularly. They even have few meat dishes on the menu!
Personnel is always busy and running, so you may have the impression they have not so much time for you.
Negative points: too many tables, no privacy, therefore too loud. Having a couple of tables less would be advisable in order to make customers feel more at ease and waiters to move better.

“A must for any fish lover whilst in Dusseldorf”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2014

If you travel to Dusseldorf on business or pleasure, and you enjoy fish, you must try the Fischhause. It is very well known on the city and any taxi driver will take you there if you are unsure about walking. The whole restaurant smells of the sea, and the atmosphere is different for us Brits, but great for mixing with other diners. For me, the many different fish, and how it is presented is amazing, I really struggle to make a selection, because I want most of them. if your a Brit, go there with an open mind and just enjoy.

“Many choices of fishes and seafood”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2014 via mobile

We wanted to change the course during trade fair Tube Duesseldorf and we tried at this fishhouse. Plenty options of fishes and seafood from North Sea: oyster, lobster, shrimp, redfish, codfish, ... But what I did not like here that the seafood and fishes were not so fresh, mostly frozen. About drinks we had chosen white wine and were very happy about it. You could choose many good kinds of wines here. Nice and quick service, comfortable seats and view. Fazit: recommended, if you're tired of steaks and meats!
