OK food but great views!

The views into the town square is fantastic. But reserve in advance for a window seat. The ribs was good but I was disappointed with the steak. It was small, and over-done. I ordered medium-rare and got well done. Showed it to waiter who insisted it was medium-rare. Learned my lesson and... read more

Very local place to eat, both regarding the atmosphere and the dishes. Remember to be very hungry as the dishes are quite big. The restaurant is placed in one of the very old houses just at the main square. We had the feeling is eating in a museum.

Lovely little café, bar, restaurant on the main square in Bremen, with lovely views of church and Rathaus. Lovely place to sit in the sun and watch the world go by. (Oh, and John Benton was a character in Dr Who - although the Germans probably don't know that.....)

I took the veal with mushroom dish. Not verry fancy, but tasteful. Although it's expensive the vieuw is worth it.

This restaurant is situated close the most touristic place in Bremen. It´s a nice rustic looking place. There is a large variety of dishes but it´s all about meat and patatoes. The meat is really awsome ! Go there if you are looking for simple but efficiant steak french fries.

This restaurant has a prime location on the main Marktplatz just siding on to the Rathaus, which is great if the weather allows you to sit outside. I ordered Turkey steak with prawns and french fries which was a special of the day. What I hadn't expected was that the prawns would be cold from the fridge, sitting on a... More

We ate late one evening here and enjoyed it. My husband liked the steak, they had a menu in English to help us order. The server was helpful in recommending potato croquettes as my side dish instead of frites (french fries) and they were oh, so good! This restaurant has a little salad bar for the Americans who want to... More

Restaurant is located on the market place of Bremen so it is very popular place. There are plenty of chairs outside and also inside. The weather was very beautiful when we visited this place so we sat outside and there you can relax with a pint of beer and watch all the people walking by. The prices are very reasonable... More
