“Never been let down but clearly others have!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

I visit Dusseldorf as least once a year and always go here for a steak..why? Well I rarely get a good steak anywhere so tend to avoid it but here the steak always cuts like butter and tastes great. I never have had any service issues but clearly others have so it's up to you but oh for such quality meat in an English steak house at these prices.

“Maredo Koenigsallee”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

We visit Dusseldorf every year for Medica, so we've eaten at Maredo Koenigsallee several times.
The place is filled to overflowing, and looks very lively and inviting.
Poor service, little English spoken, rude waiters and waitresses.
This year we had an unpleasant experience, as we came in after 10 pm and tried to order the "after 10" meals which were advertised on the table at low prices. What was supposed to be 13Euro ended up being 26Euro for my husband's meal.
This is because the waitress, (with very poor English, granted) steered him away from the value menu, to something written on a blackboard at a distance away. So he paid more than double for a steak where the steak was a tiny bit bigger than what was listed on the discount menu. He would have done better, ordering two of the value meals. She totally confused the two of us (and we eat out a lot), and we were extremely miffed, paying way over what we should have. Needless to say he manages a large company and doesn't get confused easily, but this waitress was something else.
The atmosphere is nice, lots of international people, all languages spoken around, and an inviting atmosphere, as I said, on Koenigsallee, which is all decorated for Christmas.

“worst restaurant experience of entire life”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

This is officially the worst restaurant I have ever set food in. Appalling staff with bad manners,. Should have known it was going to be a disaster when we sat outside but had to go in and get our own menus then were left waiting so long we decided to move inside with the hope of getting some service.. what a joke!!! On top of that we were left waiting gasping for water or any kind of a drink.. finally caught attention of another waitress only to be told if you've asked the other girl then its coming.. and to be fair it did.. about 20 mins after we asked.. we actually couldnt eat food from thirst but in hindsight maybe that was a good thing. Aside from the staff problems the food itself was absolutely disgusting. how can you get deepfried garlic mushrooms wrong.. whell this place managed it.. tasted like some kind of cleaning product... as a main I ordered ribs that were just like jelly.. my other friend couldnt eat his either.. when we raised it as an issue we were told that they come from the freezer and are just thrown on the grill.. god knows where they came from.. I have eaten in many many restaurants over the years and I would have actually preferred to have gone to mcdonalds because the food would have been superior in every possible way. Very dissappointing.. much better places to eat further away from the train station. Avoid at all costs.

“A warm autum afternoon and top of the town meat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

Düsseldorf is one of the most vivid cities to me. Busy with some rotarian activities I enjoyed an early closing of the meeting and went shopping. At the Königsallee I dropped into the Maredo and was delighted by the offered meat. Sorry to say, the sunshine of this warm autumafternoon was not the top expirience but the meat was!
