“Flensburg's Best Steak House”
Reviewed 13 June 2013

Porterhouse im Gnomenkeller is absolutely a great steak house in Flensburg. The steaks we got were perfect, the waiters were very friendly and serviceminded and the restaurant had a very nice atmosphere.
The prices were cheap compared to prices in Denmark, and the overall quality of the food was excellent.

“Best food in town”
Reviewed 23 May 2013 via mobile

We ended up on a short trip in Flensburg. Via tripadvisor we decided to have dinner at the Porthouse im Gnomenkeller. The place it self is very nice to see. But the food is absolutely perfect. The steaks are from a high quality and nicely prepared. The wines are perfect.
A visit worth.

“The steaks are not for dwarves”
Reviewed 16 March 2013

Gnomenkeller is a well-known restaurant in Flensburg, closely associated with a wine merchant. The restaurant is located near the city center - be aware that parking i difficult, but the restaurant possesses some in a parking lot behind the house (you have to know they're there to find them).
The restaurant is situated in what was originally build as a storage cellar in the late 1500's, so the surroundings are a part of the total experience.
The signature dishes are the steaks, but other dishes are also available. There are a good selection of starters, but if you go for one of the bigger steaks - my advise is to skip the starter.
I went for some fried scampi on a skewer plus some salad for starter and then a lamb fillet with vegetables ratatouille style and potato gratin. Not only was this a very well-prepared lamb, but the sides were really good (in traditional steak restaurants the sides are often neglected and not very well prepared).
The wine selection is quite good and we indeed did try some different types of red wines (all of the Italian), and naturally we all could agree on disagreeing in which was the best.
The service is quick and attentive, but as often seen the sommelier part of waiting is neglected so do not expect to get expert advise.

“Perfect steak”
Reviewed 4 March 2013

If you decide on a XXL steak, you are advised not to order a starter. There is plenty of food in the main course. The meat was fantastic and so was the wine. The service is very professional.

“Super value”
Reviewed 23 November 2012

The salat bar is not particular impressive, however it has all you need. The dishes are well proportioned and made excellent. The red is excellent and definately value for money.
It attacts buisness people, fammilies and couples and I would say that it is suitable for all.
