Roy Petermann, in his elegant 16th-century house, has established himself as one of the finest chefs in Northern Germany. Son of a distinguished culinary family, he has brought a refined and imaginative cuisine to Lübeck. Chandeliers and oil paintings enhance the ambience and, in summer, tables overflow onto a flower-filled courtyard. Using only the best and freshest produce, his dishes have subtle depths of flavor and texture. Game is featured in the autumn, and seafood is always available. Specialties include sautéed sole with capers and lemon butter, or grilled swordfish with eggplant and sweet peppers. So much skill is recognized internationally: with 17 points in “Gault Millau” and one star in the prestigious restaurant guide “Guide Michelin”.
