Excellent traditional German/Munster food

This is a landmark restaurant in Muenster. Very traditional German food with Munster specialties. Food portion is huge so look around other tables before you order. Most dishes are meat-focused but they have good (and huge) salad as well. I tried Salmon with pasta (substituted with veggies) and... read more

It's so wonderful to stay in this old Muenster pub. Home for young people and seniors offering excellent traditional Westphalian food and good German beer. I love it!

I felt in this restaurant as if I had been transported back in tine a hundred years ago. And I mean that in a very positive way. The staff in this restaurant is personal and friendly and on top of that highly efficient. From our table it was a pleasure watching the well organised team zoom the plates around the... More

If you're in for traditional german food, this is the place to go. Crowded with card playing locals, students and tourists alike. Friendly staff. Much less ado than other "traditional" Muenster restaurants. Be sure to reserve seats, is usually crowded even at unusual times. However, make sure that you like Westphalian food and atmosphere. Defnitely not recommended for vegetarians.

If you are looking for the German Brauhaus experience while in Münster this place will fit the bill. It's clearly super popular with the locals - usually a good sign- and was very busy. But the staff were welcoming and the wait for a table passed quickly enough. Having said that, the waitress we had looked a little 'past her... More

Luckily we walked in the restaurant without reservation this Saturday. I guess normally it is fully booked in the weekend. Nice roasted lamb shin and great beer. We enjoyed great food in Altes Gasthaus Leve. Highly recommended.

A traditional German restaurant which was busy on a Monday evening with locals which is always a good sign. As mentioned in previous reviews, there is a reduced menu in English and even though our waiter could speak English, he did not attempt to assist with any translation from the main menu, unlike other places we visited. The meal was... More

Very busy place with friendly staff. We had a great meal here for a reasonable price. Very elaborate menu, partial English menu available as well. Everything we tried tasted great. We had the beef stew with potatoes, schnitzel and our child had the fish and chips.

Warm, gemuetlich and cozy atmosphere; two good soups to start with (linzen and pheasant). Turning to the large menu we saw several promising winter dishes but in sad reality the game (hare in this case) was over cooked and one of our sausages had obvious freezer-burn. The potatoes and sauerkraut were first class but the red cabbage was watery. Service... More

This traditional restaurant was recommended by a local contact, and it is certainly an interesting experience, with good local specialities, friendly and quick service, and a fascinating traditional decor enlivened by plenty of material artefacts. We arrived about 7:15 p.m. and were told that we would have to wait about 20 minutes for a table; in fact the wait was... More
