If you are in Dubai, you will easily missed the 'thing' about the restaurant or public house spirit. Most restaurant in Dubai are either too posh or too quiet. Der Keller is different. They seem to be always busy with lots of diners and to me that's what make the difference. The thing about Der Keller is pork. This is... More

Great food. Tried the Pork Knuckle. Was fantastic. The Wiener schnitzel was just perfect and the portions are huge. Restaurant is large enough to accommodate 12 people at best, but it seems like a spot for regulars.. Will go back again when I'm really hungry
