The pork knuckle is the best in Dubai. The beer and pretzels were great. The service was quick and efficient--no complaints. I have not had a chance to come back, but I will.

We arrived precisely at 9pm. Table was not ready but we were seated at the bar. 905, we were given a table for 4 even though we were 2 (I mentioned I was VERY hungry!). Draught weißbier (the entire 2L of it)was fantastisch! Musik took my wife and I back to Bavaria - at one point they played some English... More

Entering a restaurant on a Thursday evening without a reservation is difficult in Dubai but "The Keller" made it possible. The authentic German cuisine and a small selection of German beer - helps to stand out of the crowed of restaurants in Dubai. Service and atmosphere were good - only disappointing is the missing outdoor / smoking section.

This surprisingly authentic German cuisine is a must. The authenticity is added to by the large number of German holidaymakers and expats in attendance, which is always a good sign. The staff are friendly and great with kids, we will be going back for a 3rd time (in 2 weeks!).
