Where to Eat in Bremen: The Best Restaurants and Bars

January 8, 2018 Velvet Mowry

The second most populous town in North Germany, Bremen brings the high-tech, science and space industries together beneath a truly metropolitan backdrop. In a city where innovation, beauty and sophistication meet, it's impossible not to feel the life force. In this 1,200-year-old Hanseatic city, visit the Schlachte Promenade on the River Weser, the full-sized Columbus Space Module of the International Space Station and the Universum Science Center. Oh, and "Hanseatic" refers to an alliance of trading cities in the 13th-17th centuries. But you probably knew that.

El Mundo

Reviewed By Sts s

Joint lunch with relatives. Fast and polite service. Very large dishes (not my choice), quality average. Design is kitchiy, like large mirrors. But this is my private taste. Unfortunately, the room is very large and noisy, you are listening to the neighbour if you like or does not.

Paulaners an der Schlachte

Selbst wer schon lange im Bayern lebt und ohne Stolpern den "Oachkatzlschwoaf" (Eichhörnchenschwanz) über die Lippen bringt, gehört noch längst nicht dazu. Bayrisch ist eine Sache des Gemüts … und des Gaumens. Seit 1998 macht das Paulaner’s Wirtshaus an der Schlachte die Bremer mit der bayrischen Biergartenkultur vertraut. Frei nach dem Motto „Leben und leben lassen“ erleben Sie bei uns eine besonders frische Gemütlichkeit, die echt bayrischen PAULANER-Biere, ausgesuchte Schnäpse, die vielseitige Speisekarte mit Spezialitäten aus der nord- und süddeutschen Küche, Gerichte für den kleinen und großen Hunger… und vieles mehr. Ihre individuellen Wünsche berücksichtigen wir dabei gern. Unsere täglich wechselnden Tagesgerichte und die beliebten Paulaner`s Saisonangebote lassen kaum einen Wunsch offen. Direkt an der Weser gelegen, ist das Paulaner`s an der Schlachte ein Bier- und Speiselokal nach Münchener Lebensart mit einem der schönsten Biergärten Bremens.

We were a group of 15 but they knew about our reservation and gave us excellent service. The whole group really liked their meals - quite an achievement! Bergsteiner Snitzel was really good and we also liked the Kaiser Pancakes. The beer here is also...MoreWe are very happy to hear you were very satisfied with your evening in our restaurant. Hope to see you the next time you visit Bremen :)

Kleiner Olymp

Reviewed By EuroNomad91 - Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom

Kleiner Olymp is an absolute gem in a small city with plenty of choice for eating out. Despite being right in the middle of the expectedly touristy Schnoor district, Kleiner Olymp felt like the sort of place locals go for dinner to escape the usual tourist traps. The atmosphere was fantastic - warm, welcoming and quintessentially German in many ways, and that's before you've tried the food.
The menu is extensive and we were spoiled for choice, but both ended up going for the Zwiebelsuppe (onion soup, French style, with a cheese gratin on top) which was touted as one of the restaurant's most popular dishes and did not disappoint.
For mains, I went for the Kaptain's Schmaus which is difficult to define - another reviewer called it a German version of paella, which isn't a bad way of describing it. Think chunks of fresh white fish, shrimp and shellfish mixed in with fried potato, onion and small lardons. Hearty, wholesome and delicious.
We also enjoyed the restaurant's signature beer, only available at Kleiner Olymp - a dark, fruity and exceptionally smooth number. Worth stopping by for one of those at the very least!
Highly recommended. You will not be disappointed.

Reviewed By Thomas M - Berlin, Germany

If you are in a good company for beer and want an interesting place for drink it -come here. If you are hungry and want tasty northgerman food - let it. The atmosphere is rreally amazing, the staff is fast and friendly, some home brewed beer is ready for drinking, the temperature of the beer is well. So far so good. But the food is really not well, coaled grill food, potatoes without salt, also the dishes are looking not tasty.

Gallo Nero

Reviewed By Koshkha - UK

A colleague chose this restaurant for a team dinner last night - 11 people - and the food was absolutely outstanding. We had shared starters - including lovely scallops, lots of roasted vegetables, bruschetta etc- and then chose our mains. I opted for monkfish and it was beautiful. Many had the pasta and it looked - and smelled - beautiful.
One of the best meals I've had in a long time. It wasn't cheap - though I have to say I didn't see the bill - but it was excellent quality and the waiting team were outstanding.

Loui & Jules

Reviewed By JoeriLuka - Brussels, Belgium

Invited by some colleagues of the Bremen office, we visited Loui & Jules, a very nice & trendy meat restaurant. Meat is the concept of this restaurant.
Apparently very popular as the restaurant was full and all people passing by, not having reserved a table, had to leave again. Apart from meat dishes you can also eat many other dishes.
All dishes were delicious and looked great.
The top ingredient on my personal plate was the chutney of zucchini. I was able to buy 2 cans of this great ingredient, while leaving the restaurant.
I would recommend this restaurant to everybody in the Bremen city center.

1885 die Burger

Bremens top rated burger restaurant. 100% organic-beef - grilled on open flame. Without preservatives, dyes and flavor enhancers

Reviewed By S_Templar1969

The ordering works a little like Subways. You pick the burger from a menu and then pick the bun, sauce and toppings. Various fries and salad is available as sides. The burgers are very well prepared (as ordered) and the meat high quality. The burger are very tasty and fries too albeit a bit to heavily salted for my taste. Might be worth to ask for unsalted and season them yourselves with the variety of different seasoning that is available at each table. The staff is brilliant. Super helpful and engaged. You feel welcome and that it matters to the staff that you have a good experience. We will be back.
