You would normally walk past this place as its not very classy looking. However after seeing the reviews decided to give it a go. Its only a small place but managed to get a seat outside.Its packed all the time with all nationalities. Largish menu but not really needed. Everyone has the pork knuckle and I can see why.There is... More

Small restaurant, with limited seating. Being a buzzing Thursday August evening we had to stand around until, luckily, people outside left their bench seat and we managed to grab a seat for the two of us on the end. We opted for the traditional German pork knuckle. The pork was good with nice crackling (which took me back to my... More

I ordered Schweinebraton with Bratkartoffeln, and with a beer this afternoon. It's so tasty! The chef there is so friendly and I'm very surprised that he remembers me. I was actually there two days ago, and I ordered their hacksteak. It was so tasty but it was something I wanted to try, so I went back today.

Possibly the best pork sandwich I have ever had and I live in the South. The meat is to die for and the bread is perfect. I would seriously walk a country mile everyday to get this sandwich. Not sure what the rest of there food tastes like but I can only imagine it's awesome. Next time I am in... More

My cousin recommended me to come here and try the meal at Schweine Jane. Needless to say, the dinner was nothing short of excellent. I order the Schweinehaxe with sauerkraut and mass potatoes. You must try that... The skin was crispy. Yummy!

I'm not sure why some reviewers dog places about being small, cramped whatever. This place is located in altstadt (old town) and is mixed in the rows of bars and tiny restaurants so you should know it's not going to be fancy. We came here for the FOOD, and it was better than expected. It was the best pork knuckle/shank... More
