Brauhaus Zwiebel is the obvious place to dine in Soest, a cathedral town with a restored city center in rural Westphalia. The restaurant is housed in a half-timbered building with a dark-wooden candle-lit interior. The menu features Schnitzels and other traditional German fare. The food, in keeping with tradition, is hearty and satisfying—fabulous if you’re hungry (we were very hungry)—if... More

We had a kind of family dinner with my parents here. It was really fabulous! We ordered salads as well as main dishes but the portions were so huge that we had to ask to take away the remaining food because we were able to eat only a half of them. And how delicious it was! Fantastic! Beer from the... More

Having stayed with friends in Soest I tried to repay them for their generous hosting by taking them out for a meal. They recommended the Brauhaus Zwiebel and what a wonderful choice. I must preface this review by stating that food plays a big part in my life, both cooking and eating, German cuisine is my least favourite, or it... More

We were recommended this restaurant by our hotel and it lived up to its hype. Downstairs is a small bar where the locals are very friendly and more than willing to practice their English. Upstairs is the restaurant where they all speak good English, you can have English menu's and they generally go out of their way to be helpful.... More

Surprisingly, this place is very tourist-welcoming, the staff speaks perfect English, the variety on the menu is great, the beers are fresh and delicious, and the portions are HUGE! Even the first courses are enormous. The place itself is very authentic, and decorated with my favorite Zwiebln (onions) Definitely a must if you're in the area.

Always best to book as is usually very busy. The schnitzels are fantastic, portions generous and friendly service too. The ace in the pack though, is the beer they brew in house - it's absolutely gorgeous, a must for anybody visiting Soest. If you are not too confident speaking German (luckily i'm ok on that one) then there's normally a... More

Great lunch. We sat upstairs in an open, airy room with really nice atmosphere. We had some wonderful beers and then a very filling lunch for a great price. The best part about it was the apple strudel. I would go back again today just for the strudel. YUM!!
