Proper German Gaststaette

We were here whilst staying overnight in Dortmund, and, having negotiated the early evening Christmas shoppers, made our way in out of the cold and into a warm and gemutlich welcome. A good selection of beers, and some excellent food. I wonder why I had not found this before!

Now, some may object that giving this place a five could mean that either the expectations were low or we had never visited a proper restaurant or whatever. I agree that this place will not win many prizes if they were to compete in the 'high end cooking' category. However, this is not the point. We headed there when we... More

The restaurant is very good, it is in the city centre. We tried the dortmunder special food, the portion was very big! The staff was fast and helpful! I recommend to everyone who stay in Dortmund!

Great food. Great beer. Great building. Crazy moose on the wall with seating outside and 2 floors so lots of room.

We visited as we were desperate to try some German cuisine and definitely weren't disappointed! The staff were efficient and patient as we needed separate bills! Great food, lovely surroundings and reasonably priced

After spending A LOT of time living and working in Dortmund, I always find the time too one back to this restaurant/pub. When it's warm, you can sit outside under the umbrellas and enjoy a great German beer and great food. When it's cold, sit inside and enjoy the ambience. I strongly recommend this place for taking out clients, work... More

We went there at evening. It was busy but we didn't have to wait too long before a waiter attended to us. We had beers, of course!, and to eat, two kind of soups - asparagus with gamberi and garlic. We also had a salmon salad with little potato breads, which was delicious and enough for almost two persons. They... More

We popped in here for a beer and a warm up while visiting the Dortmund Christmas Market. We were too late for food but the excellent and very friendly staff bought us some filled rolls! The bar itself looked amazing! It was all decorated out for xmas and had a huge and impressive decoration hanging from the ceiling. Above the... More

Ate here thanks to the reviews, it was well worth it! Wiener Schnitzel, German sausage, fried potatoes and onions, sauerkraut and a great local beer! Perfect, friendly staff, a great atmosphere and a well spent lunchtime in Dortmund. Top marks!
