NO!! Don't go!!

Worst vegetarian Food experiance ever! Food had been out to long, some of it had gone bad. Bread, if thrown at a persons head, could be a potential lethal weapon, that's how dry it was!
No fresh veg in the buffet, most was from can or freez or pickeled!
Waiter was more interested in flirting with cute brunette at the bar, than doing his job.
Overprized, rude and bad service, low quality food, go somewhere else, don't waste your money on this place.

Pros: The pesto homous
Cons: everything else!

A bit disappointing!

Posted on 09 / 03 / 2014

Last week we went to Season, located to the right of the Rathaus. We entered the restaurant, it was completely empty. Hardly any food was available, only some leftovers. When we mentioned to the man behind the counter the bread was very dry, he didn't do anything about it. Not even offering some other bread or his apologies. There were a few things to choose from, but nothing really interesting. We went to Season because the idea reminded us of Tibits in London (we love to go there!!) but Season is nothing like that unfortunately!! So we don't recommend going to Season.

Pros: We don't have any pros...
Cons: in a cellar/ no windows, the staff wasn't friendly or helpful, the food was very disappointing!

Tasty - but beware of coming to late!

If you are luck enough to arrive before the hot dishes run out, then you can enjoy a pretty tasty meal here.
The choice of hot food is much more limited than it used to be in the other season location (now closed), so there were 4 hot dishes when I was there.
The problem was, two of the platters were empty, and I was told it would be a problem to bring any fresh food due to lack of staff. Despite this, they charged me full price. So Eat-as-much-as-you-can really meant "choose from the leftovers".
I guess they may get their act together sometime, so I shall test again soon. The food itself is not half as good as in the original Season and even the salad buffet is a cheapy version of the original. But still, Season is still a very centrally located veggie place in the heart of Hamburg. [edit by staff]

Pros: Location, buffet eatery
Cons: hot dishes are not refilled, too expensive for very limited choice

Very nice ambience in the midst of city, where you could also take visitors, as not many such restaurants around. Mostly continental food but we enjoyed the small Arabic menu. All-you-can-eat @ 14.50 is fine; you can take time and eat as many courses as you want:)
Definitely recommend and we will go back. But beware, not for families with small kids, as there's no space for kids to move around freely.

Pros: Location, Food variety & taste, Not over-expensive
Cons: Seating gives a 'bit cramped' feeling

No special food but it`s in the city

If you look for some vegan food but nothing exciting and you are willing to eat during normal lunch hours, this is your place.
I found them a bit weak on the salad front (January) and the food was not really tasty but you get vegan food in the city.
I came here at 3 on some days and they had nothing left and also they have many cakes but none vegan, so it's more for emergencies.

Pros: Location
Cons: Nothing special, Cake not vegan, Not very balanced

We paid 10€ for a plate we filled on as much as we could. Most of the food at the buffet was vegan... and very tasty!
For 14.50€ you can have All-you-can-eat but we were full and satisfied with the one plate. We'd totally come back.
Unfortunately no vegan desserts available or at least we couldn't find a declaration.

Pros: Delicious food, good price, nice atmosphere

Vegetarian Grandeur

Posted on 04 / 25 / 2011

I have never come across a vegetarian establishment in such a grand and impressive setting. Right next to the Hamburg Town Hall in a fine building called the Bucerius Kunst Forum, Seasons is found in the basement with outdoor seating also available. The help yourself buffet food is of a very high standard with plenty of vegan choice. Prices are decent starting at 6.50 EUR for a small plate to 11.99 EUR eat as much as you want. Very impressive interior, a bit pompous perhaps, but why not. There are so many meat eating places like this so all credit to them. A bottle of house white is 12.50 EUR so all around the prices are fair. I prefer the look of the other Seasons round the corner as it has outside windows and a larger seating area.

Pros: grand setting, food, location

A good place for vegans

A buffet restaurant with mostly all vegan items. Nothing special and really no place to take a date, but nice for a short break or emergencies on shopping weekends. Kinda hard to find (it's in the basement of a museum).
