Eating really good fish in Hamburg

Everyone is looking for them - the best fish restaurants in Hamburg. Restaurants that serve "bannig lecker bisch'n Fisch zu essen" (delicious fish) are like sand on the banks of the Elbe. But which are the really good ones? Always following the nose leads us to 'Am Kai'!

Fish has been on the menu in Hamburg since time immemorial. Along the Elbe, people lived from fishing in ancient times, before the port of Hamburg set the new pace for the proud Hanseatic city.

But where can you go for a good fish meal in Hamburg these days? The culinary diversity has changed, international influences give the fish plates of the port city the most diverse culinary color. Whether freshwater fish, saltwater fish, crustaceans or shellfish - classic, Mediterranean, nouvelle cuisine or Asian interpretations - they have all joined the Hamburg Pannfisch from grandmother's time (of course also very tasty!).

Culinary anchorage - our fish restaurant at the foot of St. Pauli

So where can you eat good fish in Hamburg is a question asked in particular by Hamburg fans who, inspired by a leisurely stroll along the harbor, at the Landungsbrücken, on St. Pauli or sightseeing via harbor tour, feel an appetite for fish specialties. Those who are looking for more than just a fish sandwich or a simple fish restaurant in Hamburg are probably longing for an exciting, cosmopolitan seafood menu and are happy to reserve a seat at 'am kai' in advance.

Here, guests dine in the front row, directly with a fantastic view of the Elbe and the container port. The trendy dishes and fish specialties on the delicatessen menu attract business people, Hamburg and globetrotters for a relaxed lunch appointment as early as noon. When the sun sets in the harbor, the team around the chef asks for dinner and conjures up many dishes on the table that will take you on a culinary journey.

Restaurant 'am kai' Hamburg - a fish as a trademark

The restaurant in the port of Hamburg has chosen a fish as its trademark. The lovingly designed mackerel welcomes the guests of 'am kai'-owners Enzo and Sylviane Caressa already upon arrival in the form of a pylon on the parking lot and the main entrance of the restaurant at Große Elbstraße 145.

It is only the prelude to an incomparable visit to a restaurant on the quay wall in Hamburg, where the heart beats strongest for deliciously prepared fish. Not only the atmosphere in the harbor location, but also the culinary interpretations are a tribute to the cosmopolitan currents of a world port. This is how eating fish in Hamburg is a pleasure!
