“Best in OWL”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014

I wrote a review about a 2 years ago.
Did check it out again.
My comments are the same. What a wonderful restaurant.
A non Michelin Star restaurant, with qualities exceeding a star.
A kitchen with lots of new ideas, using local, regional products,
knowing where meats come from and all ingredients are fresh and not out of a can or a freezer bag.
Holger Busch and Silke Broeker, keep up the awesome work.

“This in Bielefeld??? Amazing!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

I was on my way from Munich to Amsterdam, visiting a friend in Bielefeld. He took me out to this farm house restaurant.
What then happened was absolutely the best.
A pumpkin creme soup, followed by a herb risotto with and orange butter sauce and fried shrimp. What a strange composition, but once you had it, you realize that this is a fantastic tremolo on your tongue.
As maincourse I had salmon over noodles and wok veggies. An interesting asian touch.
The kitchen is suposed to be Westphalian, what ever that is, but the influence of touches from France, the Orient and also Italy are making this food "out of this world".
I talked to the chef and owner Holger Busch. He and his wife are the creaters of this wonderful food.
Too bad, that I am not more often in Bielefeld. But next time I will go again. ( They are closed on Tuesdays!!)

“Delicious Authentic Italian Kitchen with top class service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

Hidden behind the old word charm of the building is a buzzing Italian Restaurant with outstanding service and great food. The staff speaks English & French and they have a goo collection of wines.

“Best restaurant in Bielefeld”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

I am a frequent guest in this restaurant.
I have compared this with all other restaurants in Bielefeld which are in the fine dining category.
The service is mostly perfect. Sometimes the overwhelming business they have slows the eating process down. mostly on weekends. The food is out of this world.
Execuitive Chef Holger Busch has cooked a Michelin Star for many years. The restaurant tries to stay slightly below a star, due to the costs involved in it. presently the restaurant carries 14 points in Gault Millau and a Bib Gourmand in Guide Michelin.
The atmosphere is wonderful.
See this for yourself.

“Excellent kitchen, not so good service...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2011

We celebrated last weekend an anniversary in this wonderful restaurant. We were all good impressed by the quality and presentation of the dishes. The restaurant also offers a calm and friendly atmosphere.

Only the service was disappointing. Once they brought us the dishes nobody came to the the tables to see whether everything was OK. I had to get up several times to take the bottles of wines they had put on a separate table in order to serve us the wine themselves. It would have been better to leave us the bottles at our table...
