The food is very good, sure a little expensive, more upper class. But the view from the restaurant is fantastico. You'll wonder whether you are really in the so called "Ruhrpott" or in a national park. You'll see the baldeney sea, you'll see the huge Forrest. I like that in the summer you can have a fun time outside of... More

It was a great dinner that I had at this restaurant. Not only the food was very well prepared and tasty, but also the wine selection was very good. I enjoyed this restaurant very much, and I also want to thank Habib for his friendliness and choices. Hopefully next time I will find a table at the winter garden -... More

Great location above lake Baldeney. Very good food, not cheap but worth it. The setting is an old tudor house prefectly renovated and blended with a modern glass pavillon overlooking lake Baldeney. Perfect for a nice summer evening on the terras, perfect for a winter evening in the cosy tudor interior. The food nicely combines "simple" local dishes with haute... More

Great place for a Romantic dinner (at the restaurant - even if a little pricey) or for a stop on a mountain bike trip at the attached beer garden (self-service).

The access and parking are easy. Once inside the restaurant or on the terrace you will appreciate the beautiful view of the valley - simply stunning. The menu offers a lot of variety as well for the children. The prices are reasonable for the quality and service. I would have spent the entire afternoon....

The view is amazing, but the restaurant is not "touristy". Lots of locals dining there. The menu offers an interesting variety of choices, and the food is delicious. There is also a children's menu.

It seems that every trip to Essen in order to see an old friend involves a visit to jagdhaus-schellenberg at the top of the hill overlooking the lake. We have been eating there for almost ten years or more and we have never been disappointed - the food is somewhat meagre in portion size but that really isn't the reason... More

Beautiful location with great views. Best place to go to when the weather is good and it is possible to sit outdoors. Food and service was excellent, and worth the price.

I was in Essen on a meeting and went back twice to this place. Fantastic food and fantastic view. The asparagus ice cream was simply amazing! Highly recommended.
