Having walked past a few times on previous days and seen this place buzzing with people we decided to give it a whirl. Firstly I have to say that over four nights in Germany, I was served the best white wine here, and it was by far the cheapest! The beer went down very well with my husband too! We... More

I was out until 8am drinking, I slept all day until the afternoon and woke up with this massive massive craving for a pork shank.... I headed out and was devastated that I couldn't find a place, until I walked past the very busy Schweine Janes, anyway the window was filled with beautifully cooking rotisserie shanks! Sat. Ate. Loved. Thanks.

This is Germany's version of fast food. The entrance is dominated by row on row of Pork shoulders on a spit. The style is basic but the taste is fantastic. Our group really enjoyed pork knuckle and schwein brotchen. It's not fancy but the people are efficient, polite and attentive. Sit outside on a warm evening, watch the world go... More

Excellent pork either roast, BBQ'd or steamed, (there's chicken if you prefer). Small restaurant, loads of atmosphere. Right in the centre of the Old Town. The whole place is buzzing. Not to be missed when in Dusseldorf. After on the next block there's a bar that sells 'Killepitsch' the unique Dusseldorf liqueur, a bigger kick than Jagermeister.

My Fiance and I travel the world looking for good food. We had read reviews and wanted to check this out after seeing pics. WE WERE NOT DISSAPOINTED. Great value for money. You will leave feeling well fed, and we ate outside, there were flies outside trying to get on the tables and people but that was because it was... More

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.
