“Authentic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013 via mobile

This is the place to go if you want you want to be treated by people who really live for running a good restaurant.
If you in addition want tasty German food it's a must.
To discover places like this is the whole purpose of travelling abroad. You probably can't find it anywhere else.

“Authentic and delicious food in delightful atmosphere.....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

Marjellchen offered excellent traditional East Prussian dinner. We dined on tender pig knuckles with cabbage salad. Succulent duck with cooked red cabbage. Our favorite was a and mouth watering pork loin with a prune sauce and perfectly prepared large dumpling. The tripe soup was very good - tender pieces of tripe in a vinegar based soup. This is a small friendly family place with authentic local food.

Hint: Go hungry. The main courses with side dishes were so generously sized that appetizers and soups were not necessary.

Hint: When you are ready for your check, just request it from your server. It is customary for the servers to allow you to enjoy conversation after you have completed your dinner. Nobody will rush you out the door.

“The real deal. ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013 via mobile

Traditional food from Prussia and neighbouring states when they were German. Host is welcoming and delightful, tells stories of her family when lived in what was then Danzig. Traditional decor and wonderful photographs. Great food in traditional style. Definitely visit if looking for regional cuisine. Hope you're hungry, you will need plenty of room in your stomach.

“Good German food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

Not cheap but food of a good standard. Many old traditional German dishes available in old fashioned surroundings. Service was slow but they were very busy which to me is a good sign. Massive portions...as the Germans like.

“like a great dinner from times past”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Loved the suburban area where this is located. Owner's constant attention to detail will make your meal memorable! Portions enough for lunch the next day! Wait staff is outstanding. Tasty food that tastes cooked with plenty of care and experience. Intimate dining surroundings.
