“Moin” is the very first word the guest reads by looking at the menu – and in consequence learns everything important about Klippkroog and owner Anna: conscious handling of products, all regional, prepared with love. This stylish, rustic restaurant is a bit off the beaten track around Ottenser Hautptstraße on the other side of Bahnhof Altona. On your plate you will find delicious cream soups, roast beef and rosemary risotto – cooked in the open kitchen. Thanks to a large table Klippkroog is also a great place for larger groups.

When it opened in 1905, the Cuneo was the first Italian restaurant in Hamburg. Over the last 100 years it has evolved into one of the most popular eateries in the neighborhood. This wooden restaurant is offside in a side street of Reeperbahn – and yet it happens that it is fully booked during the week. Therefore, you’d better book a table in advance! But beware: If you expect a pizzeria, you might be disappointed. Cuneo serves delicious Italian pasta, fish, meat and salads.
“Organic and more” is the subtitle of this cute cafe in Ottensen. The first impression of LilliSu: light wood, very Scandinavian, very cozy.

Besides, in a large shelf there is coffee, tea and home accessories for takeaway.
