Culinary delights in the old lock-keeper's house

Restaurant "Deichgraf"

Our restaurant “Deichgraf” with 100 seats is located in the former lock keeper’s house, built in 1833, directly at the North Sea Hotel Arlau-Schleuse. In addition to the extensive view, a spacious terrace awaits you when the weather is good, right on the Arlau.

As a hotel guest or restaurant guest, enjoy our North Sea region’s culinary delights and let our chef and his team accompany you Indulge in regional cuisine specialties. Whether fresh fish, smoked specialties or North Frisian delicacies – our dishes are regionally and seasonally inspired.

Variety for every taste – as distinctive as the surroundings. Of course, vegetarian dishes and excursions into international cuisine are also included.
