Great atmosphere, overlooking the lake, sophisticated menu. Great venue for sundowners or lunch so as to enjoy the view.

Terrible restaurant on a very nice location. If you cannot adjust your eating habits to their schedule, you will not be served and be told to take a seat on the sidewalk... Shame...

Came here to check this out on valentines day for a customer dinner and stayed for lunch. Food was typical German portions but very tasty. Would definitely come back.

I've been there twice and both times the food was absolutely delicious. The place is very modern and looks out over the lake which is beautiful, especially when you can sit outside in summer. It is quite expensive but the quality and atmosphere is definitely worth it.

We enjoyed superb meal here. Cream of Celery soup, Veal and dessert to die for. Compliments to the chef. He does a great job and the staff serving were very helpful. They printed an English version of the menu for us which was very much appreciated.

This is a very nice place in a cool location. The overall atmosphere is really warm and somewhat exciting and the service is warm, welcoming and very well matching the impression and the expectation. The menu is ok but the raw materials are definitely not at the level. Both prawns and beef do not have plenty of taste and flavor,... More

The restaurant is located at the Masschee lake, a little below the old city centre of Hannover (20 min walk), and offers a great view from both inside and out on the terrace, especially during sunset. The staff is very friendly and works quickly. The menu they have doesn't offer the widest selection (4 meat, 4 fish for main), but... More

We hosted a dinner for 16 and I must say I am impressed. We had a wonderful evening outside as the weather was pretty warm so if you can in summertime have a table outside the view is pretty nice.
