As its name indicates, fish dishes are excellent. It is very popular, so be prepared to wait for an empty table at peak hours.

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!

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.

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.

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.
