Excellent meal. Agree with last reviewer about eating only one dumpling! So good but so filling. We asked for advice on regional dishes. Were not disappointed!

Get ONE dumpling. ONE! Along with the sauerkraut it made for a very enjoyable dinner. We started off with a Sausage/Salmon/Potato/Camembert and some greens appetizer which name escapes me because I only speak 10 words of German. But the server was an outstanding young man who pointed out just what we should have and what proportions. Clean! Attractive! And very... More

This is one of my favourite in Saarbruecken. Just off the main square, this restaurant offers authentic Saarland food at reasonable price. Beer is excellent as well and so is the atmosphere. Very friendly staff too.

On a warm Friday evening in Saarbrucken we had a nice early dinner sat in the beer garden of this lovely traditional German restaurant. Service attentive and efficient. The house beer was very good and so was the food. I had a schnitzel filled with cheese and ham which was huge. My husband had two of the filled dumplings with... More

On a previous visit a booking error unfortunately led to us being squeezed into the brewhouse section of the restaurant, but on this occasion a table was available in the restaurant proper. Despite a full house service was attentive and friendly and the atmosphere busy but relaxed. From the menu of local specialities we both chose Saarbrucken pork fillet, which... More

We had a wonderful traditional German meal along with the house beer. This is by far the best German food I've had in years. We began with the traditional dumpling of the region which was huge (plenty big to share) and quite tasty. The salad was also one of the best I've had in Europe and it was all very... More

We headed straight here based on the Tripadvisor note & ranking. We weren't dissapointed. We ordered the Braumeister Schnitzel (Pork fillet, with a cheese and bacon filling, served with bratkartoffeln), so hardly fine dining, but sometimes downhome food is what you crave, right ? This satisfied that craving entirely, portions are generous. Beer was very tasty and the best we... More

We had another great meal here last night. Our friend had a schweinfilet while my wife and I each had the Rahm geschneteltzes, a pork dish in a creamy cheese sauce with spaetzel. Fantastic all around. I also had a side of bratkartoffeln that was very good. My wife finished off with creme brulee which lacking something. The taste just... More

Following indications from other reviews and my Lonely Planet guide, I came here for dinner tonight. It's a cozy place with the tipycal warm atmosphere of german breweries. I sampled the house bier and really enjoyed it. For dinner I went for a potato soap followed by a local speciality: stripes of pork fillet with ham pieces and "spaetzle", all... More

We had dinner and drinks here last week after visiting Saarbrucken’s Chriskindel Weihnactsmarkt. We were not able to reserve a table but we did get lucky to find a table awaiting us when we walked in around 1930. I started with the Zwickel bier, served in the boot (Stiefel) bier mug. It was very good. For my main I had... More
