If you ever ate a reasonably good Haxn, you will come to the conclusion that you have made a really bad choice. Disgusting consistence and taste.

This place constantly delivers delicious German style pork based products. You cannot beat the Schweinebrotchen here either eaten in the restaurant or walking in the street. small inside but with a giant reputation. I have been eating here since 1987

We decided to eat at Schweine Janes while in Altstadt after seeing the delicious pork cooking through the window. The pork was tender and juicy on the inside with a nice, crunchy skin. We also tried the goulash which was serviced with mash potatoes and also delicious. The restaurant is a bit small on the inside but quite cozy.

So most people expect the best presented food and the most elegant tastes in salads, this isnt for you. What is for you though maybe the most amazing exquisit taste in pork ranging from pork medallion or pork shoulder which is cooked slowly with a grill and the juices running down onto the next piece of pork. If you don't... More

Bier is nice, staff is friendly, food is hot and tasty. Although it's not the best pork leg I've tried, it should be one of those I'd love to revisit.

If you are a lover of roast pork with crispy crackling then Schweine Janes' schweinenhaxe is for you. Cooked perfectly & served with mashed potato & sourkrout, & washed down with good Alt Beer. If pork isn't your thing they also have a decent selection of beef & lamb dishes. Maybe not so good for vegetarians, though. The restaurant is... More

The Old Town can be a bit touristy or a bit tacky, but Schweine Janes is just down-to-earth, basic and does what it does really well! For us, that was rotisseried pork, done to perfection - really flavourful and tender. Sides were good too, as was the beer. Perfect authentic German "street" food. Loved it and will be having cravings... More

Tasty local cuisine, pork prepared in different ways and good Alt beer. Reasonable prices and giant portions. I really enjoyed this place and can suggest this to anyone, except vegetarians:)

Visiting the Altstadt always starts at Schweine Janes collecting a Spießbratenbrötchen with lots of "Kruste" as a foundation for a few "Alt". An absolute highligt since a long time at constant quality!
