The first thing you notice when you step into Der Keller (The Cellar) is the striking décor of red brick arches, wine barrels and solid oak furniture. The next thing is the wonderful aroma of sizzling meats. Der Keller is one of the oldest restaurants in Dubai, serving traditional German cuisine made with fresh seasonal ingredients. The variety of dishes ranges from fresh healthy salads and vegetarian options to regional specialties (including a tantalising selection of pork dishes).Sip an imported German beer with your meal as you soak up the authentic german atmosphere; whether you’re stopping by for a leisurely dinner or settling in for a fun filled night, Der Keller is a restaurant full of spirit and zest for life.

Been going here for many years - still recommend

We have been going to Der Keller for over 15 years and it is still one of our favorite restaurants in Dubai. It has recently undergone renovation which gives it that warm German Beer Stubbe ambiance. Some of the staff has also been there for many years and last night our server, Bachu again looked... read more

Have visited twice recently, once for food and once for drinks. The restaurant itself is a bit odd, apparently it was refurbished this year but looks completely fake and is lacking in any authenticity or atmosphere. Having said that our group very much enjoyed both visits, with the food being of very good quality, as good if not better than... More

This is, without doubt, the best bar in Dubai. The recent upgrade has given the bar a lighter look without changing too much. The choice of drinks is impressive for such a small venue. The staff are all friendly and welcoming. The service is quick and the barman, Ganesh, is a delight to talk to. We did not eat there,... More

We have been going regularly to the restaurant with friends, family and as well me and my wife alone to celebrate different events. The place, recently renovated, offers you a great german experience, specially when having the "Pork Knuckle", for me one of the best I've ever tried, including Germany ;-) . But nothing to complain about other dishes like... More
