The food is ok, the quantities normal, prices fair, but it is noisy in there and the owner speaks only germaan however you can ask for an English menu. The mussels were v. Good .

We all were seated and enjoyed a great dark beer. Food was good but did not set the world on fire for the fixed menu. Has great atmosphere and service was good. Would go back again.

Nice atmosphere, excellent Haus-made beer and probably the best burger in the region. I'd recommend it to anyone! Deffinitely a place to visit if you visit Nordrhein-Westfalen.

If you are looking for a real German experience... then you MUST go at Dampfe! It's a brewing factory with a restaurant inside! Beer is simply wonderful and of you dine with their pork dishes... BINGO! a perfect combination. Price is really really reasonable! Go there, don't miss it!

Good food in the restaurant, but it takes a long time to get your order through. Once you do get your order taken, the food arrives quick and is nice. During the summer season it is just the nicest place to have an outdoor diner
