All of the brilliant reviews here are true! Food is amazing, great prices and the staff are all lovely! We went twice during our trip because the food was so good! They have an English menu if you need it but they're happy to help you choose.... Great atmosphere ... A real must visit!

If you want to taste real german food (specially bbq type) then you need to visit this place. Try the Weizen Bier and Schweinehalk. The only mediocre thing is the quality of the service

We were in Dusseldorf for a long layover and went into town, happened to be the night of the world cup game...entire city was crazy. We managed to get a table here, on the recommendation of our driver, and it was fantastic. Farmer's platter, mixed grill, even the schnitzel...all great. And of course plenty of cold german beer.

The restaurant is quite small with a some tables and benches, very close to each other outside. The service was very good, the food not so good. The pork particularly was quite tough. Value is good. They do open until quite late which is quite useful in Duesseldorf as most restaurants close their kitchens at 11pm or thereabouts.

This restaurant is a true gem of Altstad. Very small entrance in between the bars, just find the eye-catching pig above the door, and you'll find it. The pork was very delicious, tasty, and juicy. Price was very reasonable. Oh and don't forget the alt beer! You're gonna love this experience :)

All your porky desires will be satisfied at this simple, straightforward restaurant. Sit down and tuck into giant portions of tender, moist roast pork with crisp crackling or flavoursome sausages with sides of sauerkraut and potatoes. Service is friendly and prices are very fair given the serving size.

If you're looking for typical local German grilled, Schweine Janes is the restaurant you're looking for!! The Schweinehaxe ( Grilled Pork Knuckle) is the dish to die for. Don't forget to order a glass of Altbier( local dark beer from Duesseldorf) . Fast service, awesome food, friendly staff and worth every single penny!

More of a cafe than a restaurant, and I normally only go for the takeaway menu. Very nice food though and the mustard is the best I have tasted. Also very causal friendly staff.

And due to I went there few times already, I've noticed the shaking unstable food quality and also the menu price is verified of different timing!!!! During the trade fair time they offered more expensive menu card than normal time! Find it hard to believe... More

A small store-front located on the "party" street with late night hours is typically not associated with good food, but Schweine Janes is a rare exception. Yes you can argue that the restaurant is operated by Slovenians and hence not traditional German cuisine, but you can't argue with the quality and taste. The smell of pork shoulders and knuckles roasting... More
