Traditional German food

I reserved a table for 2 online for a busy Saturday night. Even though not requested they saved us a lovely table outside overlooking the busy marketplace. We ate Schnitzel and drank beer which was all lovely and Traditional. The service was very friendly and attentive. The only minus I could give... read more

We like German food. But that we got here is not that what we used to eat. The restaurant look really good, but neither the service nor the food was "German standard."

If you like or want to try german food, this is the place. It is a traditional Brewery, with wooden panels and classic german service. Everything is german cuisine, very well prepared and good quality. If you are like me and dont feel ok in very enclosed places, this is not for you. It would be a nice experience though,... More

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!

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
