Located in the HafenCity district of Hamburg, Wandrahm is a classy restaurant, bistro and bar.
Wandrahm (Am Kaiserkai 13, tel: +49 (0) 40 3181 2200) is a short walk from the Elbphilharmonie. The new waterfront landmark, concert hall and arts centre is being constructed by Swiss architects Herzog and de Meuron, utilising the base of one of the red brick warehouses that once stored goods imported to the port of Hamburg. HafenCity is a regenerating this waterfront district into a smart area with homes and businesses.
Natural lighting and smart decor
Natural light floods into Wandrahm during daytime, interacting with buff-coloured wood, beige leather upholstery and white table clothes to create a bright, contemporary ambiance with just a hint of Zen.
The result is a dining space that appeals to tourists looking for a leisurely lunch venue as well as business people entertaining clients.
On an evening the subtle lighting helps to create a laid back, lounge feel, in which people can enjoy drinks at the bar. An open space links the ground floor bistro and bar area to the first floor gallery – in which dinner is served – helping to create a vibrant buzz that won’t disturb a romantic dinner.
Seasonal, locally sourced food
The seasonal a la carte menu has a good choice of fish, seafood and meat dishes. Many of the ingredients are sourced from northern Germany – the goat’s cheese from the Lüneburg Heath and the beef from Friesland, for example – and they are served with dishes that have French and Italian influences. The result is beautifully presented, contemporary cuisine in which the flavours win through.
The waiting staff, in their long beige aprons, are attentive and polite, providing the kind of service that would be expected in a place of this quality.
Wandrahm also serves breakfasts, from 8.00am to 12.00am during the week and 10.00am to 2.00pm over the weekend, plus coffee and teas throughout the day.
