Drab decor and lack of atmosphere. The turkey mozzarella dish was the type of freezer food harassed parents dish up to disappointed children on a busy weekday. Give this one a miss until their standards improve or yours drop.

The restaurant is located in the centre of the old town. The menu (they have English versions) is crammed full of classic German dishes. The food is hearty, true and honest.... and lot's of it. Service was quick and friendly, the night we went it was quite busy. It is what it is.... enjoy it!

Ate here on our last night after wanting something German before leaving town. The service was friendly and efficient. The menu offered a good choice and I we opted for the Schnitzels. The food was really good and well priced satisfying our craving for German cuisine. We were seated outdoors which made for a nice atmosphere to enjoy our meal.

The problem with Dusseldorf is that it is such a busy place restaurants don't have to excel to guarantee customers so many of them are just ordinary, The Altstadt is one of the better ones. The service is not the friendliest but it is efficient and the food is well presented and plentiful. Whatever dish you choose make sure you... More

Sitting at an outside table was good experience , watching the world go by. Food was mainly German, and the service was good. We shared a dish of grilled pork. Lots of meat, but not great quality. With the local beer we had an interesting meal, but wouldn't repeat it. So much competition in the area , we couldn't recommend... More

Again the very irritated waiter. No idea what's your problem. Ask for recommendations and he started grumbling then said something to his colleague in german. Otherwise the food was excellent with reasonable price. The restaurant is very cozy just wish their staff would be more friendly!

Hi, we went for a day trip with Thalys to Dusseldorf. We decided to get in for lunch on Saturday July 3rd. We asked in English and we were answered in German. Menu was not in English either. Asking the waiter for some help proved to be annoying for the waiter, after two questions we already wanted to leave the... More

Ate twice here while in town, lovely and generous traditional German fare. we had a Haus Platte, which had plenty of meats etc for 2 to share, was very tasty. We had difficulty finishing it, such was the generous portions. 2nd time we had schnitzels for lunch, very nicely cooked and tasty - simple but earnest German tucker!

Stopped in to try some local German food in Dec 2013. Really enjoyed the meal so returned the following day. Both meals were great. So I would visit again. We had the same waiter on both days and he was nice and friendly. Even remembered the drinks we ordered the previous day to request if we were having the usual.
