“A piggy delight!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013 via mobile

Both of us had the pork knuckle. It wasn't the best I've had but it was certainly up there! Great atmosphere, quick service and good beer. All done at a very good price. A definite return visit for us when we next visit Dusseldorf.

“Traditional German fare at low prices.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

What the owner has done here with the rotisserie machine is inventive and fun - it's worth going even for the one meal just to see all the pork cooking! The Schweinshaxe was filling but average, the Eisbein (one of my favourites) meat melted in the mouth but the fat was disappointing, and the Schnitzel was okay. The beer was cheap, the food was cheap and filling, the view was fun - worth a trip if you're in the Altstadt, hungry and in the mood for German food.

“Delicious delicious pork”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

Had one of the pork knuckles that are cooked on the rotisserie out the front. Super delicious, less than 8 euro, and enough food for both of us.

“Loosen your belt!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013 via mobile

Ate here as part of the reason for our trip to dusseldorf was to eat fatty German food (other reasons were Alt bier and Neanderthal museum). The food was amazing and exactly as fantasized about. Their Alt is boring tho. See this guys very good guide to dusseldorf alt for tips there http://www.europeanbeerguide.net/dusspubs.htm
