With its modern light and fresh cuisine and carefully composed wine cellar, Jacobs Restaurant in the Hotel Louis C. Jacob has established a reputation as one of Hamburg's finest dining venues. In warm weather, diners can sit on the famous "lime tree terrace" overlooking the River Elbe. Inside the dining room, large murals, heavy crystal chandeliers and the magnificent view turn a visit into a complete experience.
These same demanding standards apply to the cuisine – which also needs to be clearly understandable, according to Head Chef Thomas Martin's philosophy. Deliberately avoiding the trend towards highly elaborate presentations, he favours a simple and pared-down approach. Rather than abstract art or analytical sciences, his main concern is the originality of his produce. And, of course, an intense flavour experience. Anyone interested in a session in the kitchen with the master chef can sign up for one of his cookery courses.
