Rexrodt has been run by Katja and Niels Ove Nielsen since 1999. 25 years of quality and dedication to make this beautiful restaurant blossom in Hamburg Uhlenhorst, not far from the Alster. Rexrodt has been around since 1983, when Wolfgang Tuschmann opened his restaurant on the premises of a former butcher's shop in Papenhuder Straße. The shop was built in 1896 by the Rexrodt family, who were master butchers. Today, customers are offered the finest bistro cuisine in the listed rooms.

A small window in the wall of the large dining room is one of the reminders of the Rexrodt's butchery past. The Rexrodts used to look out of this window into the sales rooms. This was used to check whether there were any customers in the shop who needed to be served. Looking around the rooms, you will notice that not only this small window has survived the times. The entire restaurant interior looks as if the proud artisan family had once furnished it. Only a large sales counter and the hooks in the walls had to give way.

Almost everything else has remained. To our great delight. The white-covered, compact tables stand on a floor of patterned stone tiles. Green and white Art Nouveau tiles gleam on the walls. The glass ceiling is decorated with paintings. From up there, baroque-style painted angels look down on the clientele and watch over their well-being. Niels Ove Nielsen looks after the worldly well-being of his clients.

After various jobs in starred kitchens, including Dill on Elbchaussee, Cölln's Austernstuben on Rathausmarkt or the Hirschen restaurant in Sulzburg, he began working as a chef at Rexrodt and quickly became head chef there. When one day the opportunity arose to take over the Rexrodt and run it, he and his wife did not think twice.

Since then, Mr. and Mrs. Nielsen have run the restaurant with much love and success, offering their delicacies to guests from near and far. The menu is small, delicate and crisp. In addition to the dishes for lunch or lunchtime, guests can also choose popular classics such as Wiener schnitzel or steak frites. The plates are delicious and made from the best ingredients. Great importance has always been attached to seasonality and regionality.

Over time, the shop has grown together with beautiful Uhlenhorst. A district which, despite its proximity to the city and the Alster, is a pleasantly unagitated place. Many of the neighbours come regularly to make themselves comfortable on the terrace or in the premises.

A small adjoining room of the barroom can be rented for weddings, birthdays or other festivities. By the way: If you would like to say "I do" in this special place surrounded by art nouveau interiors, the Hamburg Nord registry office registrars will come directly to the location.

Back to the essentials. To the table. We start with a summery salad. The leaves are crisp, the grilled summer peach is refreshing, and the buffalo mozzarella is wonderfully aromatic. Accompanied by a bit of pomegranate and acacia syrup. A good start.

In the next round, we opt for the pike-perch fillet wrapped in potato with lemon velouté, dill pickles and mustard seeds. The fish is the star here, officially portioned, juicy and cooked to perfection, accompanied by fine velouté and delicious braised cucumber and mustard seed.

Dessert rounds off the evening and makes us happy. We enjoy a caramelised lime tart with raspberry-wasabi sorbet and fresh berries. Contrasting textures and finely balanced flavours refresh the mind and palate. A short stroll along the banks of the Alster brings this lovely evening to a close. The good life can be so simple.
