Lütt Hus in Heiligenhafen

Lütt Hus is located in a charming brick house in the heart of the old town of Heiligenhafen. The name says it all with its very limited seating and a menu which is small and changing on a daily basis. A reservation in advance is therefore highly recommended. German specialties are served, depending on what’s in season and from the cozy dining room of the restaurant, guests can also watch the chef preparing each and every dish.
