There are not enough superlatives to describe the dining experience at this truly wonderful restaurant. Indeed, I have been coming here regularly, since I first discovered it by chance in 1991. For an 8 year period, we were guests of Maria and Hans-Pieter on a nearly monthly basis, and now, even though I live in Hong Kong, I still try to eat here whenever my wife and I return to Germany.
From the minute you arrive until the moment you say your goodbyes, you will be looked after by the fantastic staff who, quietly and unobtrusively ensure that your every need is catered for. I have had meals where it was just my wife and I: other occasions have seen over 60 of us in the restaurant and regardless of the size of the function, the same efficient, quite and polite service is encountered. In an age where manners and courtesy seem to be counting for less and less, this approach is refreshingly wonderful!
So far, I haven't mentioned the food so I will now. In the 26 years of eating here, I have never once had a bad course and neither have any of my myriad of dining partners. Each dish, be it fish, meat or vegetarian is cooked and presented to perfection with wonderful and sublime tastes that make you wish the experience would last forever. Hans-Pieter is a true talent and some of his creations are amazing - their presentation alone makes you reticent to tuck in, but the knowledge that the taste will exceed even the look, ensures that is exactly what happens.
The fact that I will come half way around the world to eat at this particular restaurant should speak volumes. I will close now by saying that as long as the Roemers are managing a restaurant, I will make every effort to try and visit on my trips back to Europe. Without doubt, this is one of the best restaurants at which I have dined at in the world, and having eaten at some very high end places, Amber at Mandarin Oriental in Hong Kong springs to mind, Roemers Restaurant would be my choice each time.
