Just had an amazing evening at Der Keller - the service was excellent & the food outstanding ! So many restaurants in Dubai are very average but Der Keller is truly a great experience from start to finish ! The sausage platter is an excellent choice to start !

Most of us had the pork knuckles. Really well prepared and good tasting. The staff were very attentive and always at hand, yet never underfoot. Highly recommended when staying in Jumeirah Beach Hotel

I visited Der Keller following the advise of a friend. No dispointments. The food and service were great and up to expectations. Nice and relaxed ambiance on the restaurant. Prices are very reasonable for food, for the drinks it is the same around Dubai. Try the sausage platter, good way to start you dinner. Desserts could be better, but all... More

Dined here recently and was very disappointed. The food was average at best. Asked about serving size for the children, but what came out was twice the size of what had been advised - they could have shared the plate & still had some to spare. Plus it was dry & over cooked. I ordered the pork belly, what I... More

The restaurant has the right to have the title of hiden secret, located on the first floor of Jumeirah Beach Hotel, just passing the hair dresser, on a very odd location. Once you enter the restaurant door it just feels like you were transported to a different place and location. Coze seating, nice ambiance. The place is great. Food was... More

This place is great! I can't believe we hadn't been there before. The service was efficient and the food really good. It is obviously frequented by the local Germany community judging by the number of tables of customers speaking Deutsche. It is really kid friendly, with a good child menu. The pricing is very reasonable considering that they serve pork... More
