Very traditional German but average tasting food. Hardly any choice for kids and our child's schnitzel tasted "funky". The customers who frequent this place seem to be mainly older Germans. The bit that shocked us was the extreme rudeness of our waiter, who somehow even thought he deserved a tip! If you want some nice hearty food in Dusseldorf, just... More

Those who like hearty food in a homely atmosphere will love the Altstadt’s brewery pubs. They all serve savoury Rhineland dishes and home brewed Altbier and have similar interiors with scrubbed tables and wood panelled walls. Having visited all the brewery pubs in the Altstadt, Im Fuchschen soon became our favourite. Seven real ale enthusiasts on a several day gourmet... More

Brilliant place. It is so atmospheric and the food is a very good example of German cooking from this region. We had Deep fried pork shin served with potatoes and Purple Sauerkraut, and Herring served with lovely fried potatoes and salad. Both were served with oodles of top fermented "alt" beer. In typical German fashion, your drinks tally is marked... More

must at this restaurant in Altstadt AKA Old Town. We took the train over from the airport and it was a hassle free ride. You would think you were at a US restaurant based on the size of the portions. Mistakenly I ordered a side salad and by US standards that would have fed two. We dined on Bratwurst w/... More

Always great and easy to meet meet people and create friends. If you would like to taste good typical Dusseldorf Braurei dishes and one of the best Alt beer of the city in a traditional Duesselorfer Braurei atmosphere...that's the right place!

Stopped by for one of their famous Alt beers. Located at the top of Old Town, the customers were friendly but the waiter was not. Despite this, I would return. The food looked and smelled amazing and other customers were more than friendly. One caution, do not "sit" at the rail tables just inside the front door unless you really... More

had a baked potato and salad and was stuffed for hours... altbier very good, wine comes in proper German glasses (the ones with the banded ridged stems that curve into a wide base). Décor nice, service efficient & friendly.

we visited here during the World Cup, Germany was at home and the street was packed and the bar was packed. Staff though did manage to find us a table and they were very friendly. We sat inside and it was a typical German environment and exactly what we wanted. Whilst you would not make a special journey for a... More

I live in Dusseldorf and I have been here a number of times due to its popularity, but sometimes it is great, and sometimes it is awful! The menu is limited but the food is nice tasting, but the service is usually very rude and impatient. They seem to expect you to be as quick and knowledgeable as a local.... More
