The best Pork Leg in town!

I come to Dusseldorf every year in late august for a trade show and EVERY year, Schweine Janes is a must! I believe this is probably the best place to eat pork meat in the whole Nordrhein Westfalen. The only hard thing is.....to find a table!! since they don't accept reservations.

Yes, needless to say the pork meat is great. BUT...this IS Germany! Their speciality is the 'haxe' - comes with crackling, cabbage if you're into that sort of thing. However, the service was p o o r. The place is tiny, and outside tables were full, so we sat inside. One waitress, who was arguing with the cook quite loudly... More

Very nice and tasty place, great variety of meat choice, big portions, good salads and extremely nice waiters and owners!!! I am not a great connoisseur of meat dishes but what I tasted was very tasty! The portions are very big, so if you are with a company of three or four people I could advise to try meat platter...

Nice restaurant with very good food specialized in the pork meat area (but they have other stuff). Situated on the restaurant- and bar street Bolkerstrasse in the old town. I always return to this restaurant at least once each time I'm in Düsseldorf. The only problem can be the lack of tables since there are often a lot of hungry... More

A good place to get a feel for German food. Try not to be intimidated by all the Asian tourists. A must visit place if you enjoy roast pork leg.

Found this place on the corner. When they realised we were English immediately gave a menu in English. The girl was extremely helpful and the service good. Meal for 2 including drinks €20 approximately. The waitress was keen to make sure we enjoyed the city and a pleasure to deal with

When you want to try out german food in Cologne, this is the place to go. I`ve read about the restaurant before we came to Dusseldoef, and it was well worth a visit. A smiling waitor served us promte, and food and beer was excellent.

After walking for hours in their shopping district, my family and I were so famished and landed in this cozy restaurant. Roasted pork and their schnitzel ( german breaded pork) was really superb! Service was quick and efficient! price is just about right just like the serving.

If you are a fan of pork, this is a must. Roast pork knuckles sliced with crackling and put in a bread roll for only Euro 3.50. I could not believe the quality for the price. Generous portions of side orders too. A modest looking place but some of the best pork I've ever had, anywhere in the world They... More
