glad we stopped

My friend and I walked around Sachenhausen before deciding to stop 'just for a beer'. Several hours later, after a great meal, and good conversation, (hi Tulu) we returned to the hotel. The family run restaurant was also very busy, always a good sign.

This is a family run restaurant and, it is also very busy the time of year I visited. My family booked our table several months before our visit. Given the time of year goose was the main event on the tables, and I was told by my family it certainly was cooked to perfection. I had a steak instead of... More

The traditional restaurant where to try this speciality of german cuisine and tradition. The atmosphere is very friendly, pub style with big wooden tables, you can see the pictures, very loud and full of businessmen eating and drinking beers. Plate was good as well as the traditional beer. Service a little bit slow

We visited the place a group of 8 friends. The restaurant is a big space attended by groups. It wasn't full at the moment we went there (two tables next to us empty). They served the starters and drinks quickly and nicely. But when it came to the main course, they brought in one dish. About 7-10 minutes later another... More

An old wonderful restaurant in Sachenhausen. You have to try the Schweinshaxe, which is the speciality of this restaurant. Some night they have music inside.

Very convivial atmosphere, solid echt Deutsch food in Sachsenhausen. Not great for vegetarians - the speciality is pork knuckle (schweinshaxe) served with sauerkraut and seriously good mash. Wash it down with beer (very good) or the local cider (dangerously drinkable) Great place to go with a crowd of buddies.

I was there for the Ambiente Fair and we went there for dinner. Food is very good and portions are very big. Price is not bad at all and it's tipically german.

Funnily enough we had had enough of tourists and although a number of places were recommended to us for good german food, we stayed away as most were tourist traps......fortunately whilst in a taxi we met a really cool guy who told us about this place. He dropped us off, we went in, was welcomed and seated. We asked the... More
