Absolutely awesome place - love the interior, atmosphere, traditional uniform of the staff, and most of all the food! Portions are really HUGE, prices are more than reasonable. Perfect to satisfy your craving for pork - cos you'll definitely get A LOT of it on your plate

As a lifelong devote to beer and things that go well with beer, it should come as no surprise that I LOVED Oktoberfest in Munich when I went a few years back, and on every visit since. Latterly German food and beer in Bierkellers worldwide have become a firm favourite, and they don't come much better or more authentic than... More

6 guys for some bartwurst schzintel and beer. Thursday night so resturant was a little busy. However absolutely no excuse for dinner taking 90 mins then being cold. The staff did try to appease us but the mood was bad already.

We visited this restaurant last week. The place was about 50% empty so service was good. I ordered the Camembert to start which was pleasant. my husband ordered the chicken broth which was basically water. Then I had the bratwurst and mash which was nice. My husband had the pork chop. Overall an ok experience. Unfortunately my husband had bad... More

Since 2005, when we first came to Dubai, this is one of our favorite restaurants in town. The food is tasty and well prepared. Needless to say, their masterpiece is the pork knuckle. Remember to book it in advance otherwise you risk that is finished... Also the staff is always friendly and attentive. Definitely recommended!
