In the center of Spitalerstraß lies one of the busiest streets of Hamburg for its commercial character. This interesting restaurant serves mostly German good. In my point of view you can´t eat very well in Germany, so don´t expect this place to have amazing dishes or new flavors. Normally the meats are average and the fries frozen. They give importance to the salads and the products that they are made with are good, almost more than in Spain. It´s a place of average price which is perfect to eat at if you are looking at the monuments that represent the city, the staff is nice, they accept cards and they have a menu in english and German.
Not everything is sausage and beer in Germany. The Chilli Club in Hamburg, for example, located in the middle of Speicherstadt in the harbor of Hamburg, offers a very nice modern atmosphere with several Asian-style dishes from sushi to woks (the house specialty). And yes, you can use cutlery...but are you really going to resist the chopsticks??
If you really want to try German food while in Hamburg but want to save time, we recommend visiting Beisser, especially if you are hanging around the Altona district. It's not an expensive lunch, with generous portions of German cuisine that will satisfy our appetite, and will delight the palate, as the quality is high. Each week a menu with several dishes is offered and the average price is 8 euros, not bad for Hamburg, which is equal to Madrid or Barcelona for cost of living. As assortments offered as deli / butcher shop, it's worth taking a look and try some other product to take home. I note in particular, the supply of pates and sausages.
The beautiful Altona neighborhood offers many things including the strikingly beautiful cafes that fill the streets. Café Knuth is a classic must-visit every time I go to the Hanseatic city. I recommend their excellent selection of cakes, but their european standard coffees are no big deal, so I recommend having a cappuccino or another beverage. Their service is good, and the interior of the place is, together with the quality of the food, the best.
Couch Kapitän is a small bar and restaurant in Hamburg's St. Pauli area. It's located a little off the famous Reeperbahn near the Elbe and the harbor. Like I said, it's a small place and they serve up good food and beer with friendly, family-style service. The decor might make you feel like you're in your grandmother's living room, but once once they turn on the music in the evenings you'll definitely be in a dancing mood.
Near the metro station "Jungfernstieg" next to the Alster is one of the most famous restaurants in Hamburg. Designed in 1799 by French architect Lancelot Quatre Augustin Barbes, it was destroyed and reconstructed many times, most recently in 1952-1953. Inside there is also a patio. Here you can eat many different types of dishes or just have a drink if that´s all you want.
It has a very nice and elegant atmosphere. It's in a seemingly rustic building, a stone's throw from the photographic art galley. It features a large selection of varied dishes. During the week it is full.
