With so many restaurants to choose from and only being in the city for two nights it was a little disappointing to dine in one where the food was just ok. No real complaints but nothing stood out either.

Had dinner here yesterday evening. There was a small queue which we took as a good sign. The tables are very close to each other. The food was good, traditional, hearty German food. We weren't brought an English menu and I didn't realise there was one available until I read some reviews here. There were some dishes whose names we... More

Another reviewer, Walt M, mentioned the salt. My sauerkraut was very salty - perhaps we were unliucky. The service and the pig knuckle were both excellent. My fellow diners seemed to be enjoying themselves and the place had a pleasant and friendly atmosphere. The prices are reasonable for what you'd expect in the Altstadt. You can see into the kitchen... More

We were in Dusseldorf for a long weekend and in the evening had a wander around to look for somewhere to eat - there was a queue outside this restaurant so we took that as a good sign! We waited 20 minutes for a table and it was well worth the wait! The most popular dish was pork knuckle and... More

I have been going to this place for many years. The most popular dish is pork knuckle and it never disappoints. If you are visiting during a trade fair as I do you must have a reservation weeks in advance!

The food was reasonably good, but some dishes were overly salty. I had the pork knuckle which was excellent and seasoned appropriately. My companions had the rack of lamb and pork kebobs both complained the food was too salty. Alt Bier was very good. Wait staff was friendly. English menus available.

I stopped by for lunch on a gorgeous October afternoon exploring Altstadt. In Old Town you can find a number of restaurants but I wanted something German and to be able to sit outside to enjoy the perfect weather. The server was very helpful and offered a menu in English once he realized I did not speak German. He suggested... More
