Awesome Ribs. Book early. Been here on numerous occasions and love the spare ribs. My favourite food and this place ranks 2nd in my all time favourite ribs.

After asking the locals where to find some good German food, they recommended Mutter Habenicht. The food was very good and was delivered fairly quickly. Good service and neat atmosphere.

When you take a look at it from the outside you expect it to be a typical German place. Well, it is but it has one "international" dish which they say it's the best in town. Well, it is. Their ribs are amazing. You should have a try and while you are waiting for them (which is well worth it)... More

We travel to Braunschweig a couple of time a year and this is always our first stop for A good German meal. Portions are very generous and the Schnizel is great. Nice local beer selection and an old world feel to the resteraunt. Seems to be a local favorite. One plus for us they are dog friendly, our Havanesse sleeps... More

It has a very nice deco and a homy atmosphere, but the food was too fatty, not tasty and relatively expensive than similar places in the same area.

My favorite destination in Braunschweig. Great atmosphere in a central location, cozy inside and relaxed Biergarten in the back. Very good ribs, schnitzel and other seasonal offerings.

Took a business trip to Germany and found this amazingly good pub. They served really good traditional food, good atmosphere, good beer, and reasonably priced ie 1 large salad two main courses two beers and a glass of wine €42. Be hungry, the portions are also traditionally German :)

We had reservations before going, which may be useful on busy nights. Everyone in my party ordered the daily special (printed in German and English). Don't make the mistake of ordering your potatoes fried, even though the menu clearly states that you can have them either boiled or fried. Our waitress became irritated when I did, and they came out... More
