One of the oldest restaurants in Dubai... I would recommend Der Keller Signature Dish "Eisbein oder Schweinehaxe mit Sauerkraut & Meerrettich" I have tried the crispy version! It was amazing together with South African Shiraz... Service is really great with happy & friendly personnel... And Marcel the Chef of the restaurant really captures the flavors of Germany!

I ordered a crispy pork belly with roasted pork neck... But when my food came instead of pork belly they gave me a brick of fat with only a very little hint of meat in it. When i complained to the waiter, he said "ma'am, it's a pork belly, it's supposed to be like that". I was expecting for the... More

This place was suggested by one of my friends who loves German food and I had to try it. I must say, I'm not a fan of heavy dishes, but I enjoyed every bite of what we ordered. The pretzels that they offer as a starter are my favorite and the radish starter we ordered was pretty good too. As... More

My husband and I were lucky enough to get here during happy hour so the wine and beer was very reasonable. We got the spaetzle with cheese to share and it was delicious. It uses a swiss cheese which changes the flavor of what you expect, but still very delicious. Nice friendly service, and great for a drink and snack... More

I recently had a craving for pork knuckle and was to lazy to cook it on my own, so I decided to take my wife out for dinner and we ended up in "Der Keller". After arriving I was wondering to find "Der Keller" (english Basement) in the first floor, but it might be just the name. ;-) However, we... More
