Big taste, small town.

This restaurant was. Great experience. We ordered the 9 course tasting menu and were quite happy. The service and decor are low key. This place is all about the food. It is a pleasant non-touristy stop to add to your schedule if in Dusseldorf. Not romantic spot great for business meeting.

When I visited Tafelspitz the last time, I really enjoyed the modern, but focused cuisine. Unfortunately the place seems to have joined the club of restaurants aiming to celebrate their own artistry rather than providing an enjoyable dining experience. When the wait staff needs 5 minutes to explain a dish, chances are that it is too complex. Why does a... More

Supporting what others have said that this is an intimate dining experience where you know that there is great care as well as great creativity in the food. And, along with that comes a 'great' price. Certainly it costs but it was definitely worth it. We chose the average (4 course) meal, and that was quite sufficient and of course... More

Tafelspitz 1876 is a small restaurant with a few tables on the outskirts of Düsseldorf. The interior of the restaurant is modern, but upscale, warm and intimate. They have 2 set menus, from which you can select different dishes in order to create your own menu and vary the number of courses. We ordered the mid-sized menu. All we had... More

This young Chef en Route to his second Michelin-Star definetely has to be supported! Only 7 tables inside + 1 outside so reservation is strongly recommended! And unlike all others they don't even put the Michelin- or Gault Milleau sign outside, just the supporter sticker for the local soccer team ;-)

A friend and I had this as our one big meal over a weeken in neighbouring Bochum. Tafelspitz 1876 was a very nice experience. The food ranged from good to excellent, which was the main downside to our stay. Basically most of the savory dishes were excellent, but the dessert (chocolate fondant) and the petit fours were not so interesting... More
