“Consistently excellent food and a great atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2013

Have been spending time every week for the last couple of months in Dortmund, usually staying in the NH or the Mercure in the city centre.
Went here by chance the first time and haven't dared try anywhere else. They have menus in English , although some of the direct translations don't work!
I have tried most of the steaks, but have settled on the 400g rib-eye which is to die for. There are lots of variations on the steaks where it comes as a meal, but if you just want steak, then order yourself the steak of your choice - which can be cut to any size, then some rosti and salad.

It will come just as you've asked, and it will be delightful.

the beer is also good - local is always best, and the staff are typically attentive and friendly enough, with some friendlier than others, and some speaking more English than others.

The bill is not cheap, nor expensive - it is about right for what you have eaten, but what you have eaten is great quality.

I will keep going back until i stop needing to be in Dortmund!

“Great setting in the square”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

Lovely to sit here in the sun and watch the world go by, drinking great beer and eating nice food. They will adjust any dish to suit your request and even very busy, sever is good. We were there when Dortmund were playing Bayern Munich in the Champions League final, and still they coped with all the masses of people.

“Quiet Sunday evening in a picturesque interior.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012 via mobile

Rapid service and quality food. Steak was recommend but was nothing special. I will try Snizel next time. It was busy but quiet on the evening we went. Some music may have added to the atmosphere.
The beer was very good not surprising considering they brew their own.

“Good traditional Dortmunder Brewery”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2012

Good meat and classical german dishes in a warm brewery athmosphere. Service is swift and friendly. Prices are a bit high (around 20 Euros for a piece of meat) but quality is excellent and plates are very well served. Local beer directly from their own brewery !
