Where to Eat in Kiel: The Best Restaurants and Bars

July 20, 2017 Sachiko Swiger

Ahoy, Kiel! This Olympic city is a hub for international sailing events, including the renowned Kiel Week, held every June since 1882. Originally a Viking settlement, the city has caught up with the times, providing visitors with a plethora of dining, shopping and entertainment options. Meander through lush botanical gardens and marvel at the historic ships bobbing gently in the harbor.

Kieler Brauerei

Reviewed By earthsinger - Hastings, New Zealand

We stopped twice at Kieler Brauerei, sitting outside the first night and inside the next. The beer is excellent, the food equally good. I have an asthma-like reaction to smokers, and there were a few outside, so the second visit we sat inside, but again,...MoreMoin earthsinger! Thank you very much for your rating!

Block House Kiel

Our Block House restaurant is on Asmus-Bremer-Platz, which is right by Holstenstraße. With its cosy bar area, it's the ideal place to meet for a business lunch or for a wonderful evening with family and friends.

Went for dinner with my wife on her first visit to Kiel. We were not disappointed. Steak was great. The side of grattin was to die for. Salad with American dressing was good. For dessert of recommend the cheese cake.

Ratskeller Kiel

Reviewed By Heffaklump

Nice ordfashioned place. We had today's lunch (turkey) which was very tasty. Such a large place with so many tables should have more waiters than those few working that day, though. We had to wait a little too long to be really content.

Weinstein

Reviewed By Thide - Singapore, Singapore

This well appointed restaurant on Holtenhauer Str., one of Kiels main shopping and dining streets, is very worthwile a visit. The chef himself served our delicious light dinner and was always ready to give advise and informations on his cuisine. The good Grauburgunder from Baden and the draught beer from a small brewery my daughter had added to the success of the dinner.

we didn't go for the hottest possible options. we both had curries--i had massaman curry with chicken and my partner had panang curry with tofu. the portions were way too much to eat and for once we broke german custom since we saw them preparing food to be picked up, and asked if they could give us the rest, to go. so we also had a delicious lunch the next day.

Great stop for lunch when in Kiel. Easy to find, just off the main pedestrian street, it's a typical German kneipe, popular with locals and tourists. Good food from a typical German menu. Prices are good. Outdoor Seating for dining in good weather. Many German beers to choose from.

Restaurant Ann Sushi+Fine Food

Reviewed By DrPartTimeTraveler - Singapore, Singapore

In a small city like Kiel, it can be difficult to find a good and authentic Japanese/Korean restaurant. We often patronize Ann whenever we need a good Japanese/Korean fix. Their Bimbimbab is popular so are the variety of sushi and sashimi. If one is planning to visit on a weekend, be sure to make a reservation way ahead.
