The place is very pleasant and the food, excellent. The restaurant decoration is very traditional in German style. It is certainly a place I would go back.

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.

I was invited here on a business trip. We had a four course dinner. The focus is on meat dishes, but there was a vegetarian main course to choose from and they even brought me a vegetarian soup, even if it was not on our menu. The waitresses were very friendly and very efficient. All dishes were delicious.

Very nice dinner - traditional German fare was delicious. Also enjoyed the local Pinkus Mueller Alt Bier. Helpful in bridging the language barrier since we were Americans.

The food here is very typical German, with a good selection of local specialties. The quality is very good. Service is friendly - and the setting is in a great old building with atmosphere.

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 it was tasty. I happened to be here twice and at second... More
