Great restaurant

Traditional German fare and great beer. Sit outside in summer. Food and drinks were delicious and the service fast and courteous. For the quality (and amount) of food we good, prices were very cheap!

Very nice, typical German restaurant. Great food, very good service. Friendly staff. Nice location, very traditional German atmosphere. They serve excellent, typical German, food. We were in August, and chanterelles were house specialty.

A busy restaurant is usually a sign that the food is good and this is no exception: when my wife (who is Scottish) and I (a native of Münster) last visited, the place was "heaving" with diners. We were asked to have a drink at the bar (an excuse to sample the excellent Pilsner beer) and were soon taken to... More

Altes Gasthaus Leve is a very big restaurant with many corners and rooms. But the service is good and staff is very friendly. They serve the real german food and portions, so don't take a starter, if you like desserts! We ate a schnitzel mit jagersosse and a grill spiesse. Both very well prepared and value for money. The Riesling... More

We couldn't get into this restaurant for dinner as we had not booked. We decided to try for lunch and so glad we did, great food, great atmosphere and lovely staff. Mostly traditional German dishes. Again well worth a visit.

I have been to this restaurant many times and I always find amazing food, friendly service and good drinks. It is a family establishment and old school in its interior but also innovative in its take on traditional cuisine. They need two servers to carry the pig knuckle to the table. Reasonably priced and many locals frequent this restaurant..

We were looking for a quintessentially German evening meal and this seemed to tick that box based on previous reviewers' comments. We weren't disappointed - a wide selection of goods honest, no frills main courses, cooked well and served with just the right length of delay. Decent if unspectacular choice of draft beers. Very nice, traditional decor and ambiance too.
