One of the beautiful things about living by a portside city is the availability of fresh sea produce. We made sure to take full advantage of that during our visit to Hamburg, and had fish for almost every meal.
One of the best stops during this whole trip was to Karofisch and it was a total surprise too. Karofisch is a casual, diner-type restaurant and while it does not have the most impressive looking restaurant or setting, the amount of care gone into cooking a good fish shone.
Mixed seafood platter with 5 types of fish, scallops, calamari and prawns.

Blue and white is the theme around here but I don't think they are Greek...
A salad to start. Simple with a slightly sweet and tangy sauce.
The KAROMIX. (€14.90) Serving includes salmon, pollack, ling, tilapia, shark catfish, scallops, calamaris and prawns
Served with potatoes of your choice and vegetables. We went for grilled potato on this one.
Whole trout with roast potatoes and grilled vegetables. (€9.90)
Moist and succulent!
Definitely the best restaurant during our short stay here.
Verdict: We were served in humble surroundings but the star of the show here was the well cooked fish and it definitely warrants a second visit should we travel to Hamburg again.
