A nice juicy surprise

It took a bit of persuading my three travel buddies to eat at Pfefferkorn, due to its odd location right smack bang to our large, modern looking hotel.

Came here with a colleague on a warm night so could eat outside-however, inside is cosy and atmospheric. The restaurant is in the centre of Dortmund, in a cluster of similar looking bars and restaurants, however I think this is the pick of the bunch. It has a reasonable menu, with their speciality clearly being steaks. The fillet steak Parisian... More

We eat Schnitzel (Wiener style) Sorry to tell but it was one of the worst we ever eating in a restaurant. The staff was friendly and serve our food very fast. ( Maybe is this why the food was so bad?)

Recommendation by a friend and was highly delighted with our meal. A rustic German style restaurant with an excellent atmosphere. The quality of meat was fantastic and cooked to perfection. The service was first class (Lisa Zellerhoff) and nothing to much trouble. Would highly recommend a visit.

The service was great too and the steaks were reasonably good value for money. The restaurant itself feels typically german... More
