It is a nice little restaurant hidden in the neighborhood close to Altona station. The food is good as well as the service. I think it is worth to go and try it.

I've been invited there by a friend who lives in Ottensen and very proud of every inch in that authentic Hamburg neighborhood. Our food experience there certainly added to his pride! This cosy small restaurant is open since 1919 and offers true local cuisine with a North Germany twist: fish, lamb, venison or rabbit. I went for a pasta with... More

Next to the very good wine selection, which is dominated by north-European wines, they serve excellent food. The wine bar has a very cozy athmosphere and the first floor restaurant is stylish, but not posh. VERY well done!

Great athmosphere, food and service. Don't speak German? Don't get put off by the indecipherable menu, just ask the friendly waiter. Great place for a cold winter night. Very cosy, all wood around you. Food was excellent, we had deer bourguignon, fish dish followed by a cheese German cheese platter. All very tasty. I would strongly recommend it

We visited 'Zur Traube on a recent multi-city trip to Europe and it was our favourite restaurant of the whole trip. We were a little trepidacious at first as we don't speak much German and it seems like quite an up market place but the service we got was very friendly, helpful and patient. The wine list is extensive and... More

We came around 19.00, it was Wednesday evening. Downstairs was almost empty and first you see the bar. We asked for a dinner and friendly lady showed us the way upstairs. First impression was really cozy small dining room.. nice lounge music on the background, creaky wooden floor... picture of Alfred Hitchcock.. You honestly can't say what the place is... More

The restaurant is small, cosy and traditional. The tables are close together and the place has an authentic 19th century feel (in a good way). The menu is not extensive but there is good variety - we had a choice of fish, rabbit, venison or chicken for main courses. The food is good, tasty German cuisine and the wine list... More

Description
The Zur Traube offers a romantic setting with its wood carvings and crystal chandeliers. The restaurant is popular with young and old and the wine goes down well. The panelled walls and narrow benches on the ground floor make it feel like the belly of a ship. With candlelight the mood is perfect. On the first floor you can choose what you would like to eat from the handwritten menu offering a choice of French and Mediterranean specialities such as Breton fish soup and braised rabbit served with potatoes. The staff are experts and will recommend just the right wine from the restaurant's fabulous wine selection.
