“Friendly atmosphere and tastefull dishes.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

We are four friends from Holland who are making short trips once and a while. This time we came over Muenster and stopped at the Grosser Kiepenkerl. The service was very friendly and extremely helpful in acquiring a table inside. Although the menu is not very extensive,the dishes are authentic and very tasteful. Especially the desert "Herrencreme" was well received. Thanks for a very nice and tastefull evening!

“Old tradition”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013 via mobile

Centenary brewhouse in town, good service , good beer, good food. Good option for drinking beer and apetizers. Altough lots of tourists in place, locals still eating and drinking there , a good sign for a traditional establishment

“Nice place, good atmosphere but not spectacular.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

After our shopping tour in Munster, we had selected this restaurant for its location and local kitchen. On a saturday evening, the place was packed with people eating & drinking, and a reservation was made for the next available table 1.5 hours later. Unfortunately it was rather chilly so that we could not enjoy a local beer outside the restaurant facing the statue of the 'Kiepenkerl'.
With such a popular place, expectations are obviously high.
Once seated the waiter came by to distribute the menu cards. He failed to make promotion for the special dish(es) during the game season and forgot to take the order for a drink.
The menu card had a variety of local dishes. It was unclear if menu cards in other languages were available.
The selection of wines is rather limited and the waiter obviously has no clue whatsoever about the wines served in the restaurant.
The dishes were served swiftly. Tastewise the dishes were all OK. The rosemarin-red sine sauce with the 'Geschmorte Lammshaxe' was excellent so was the 'Hirsch-meddaillons' with selerie potatoes. The third dish of filet of porc rolled in bacon was up to my partner undercooked. In general the dishes were rather small.
The desert list could not convince us to 'sin'. Preference was given to a local brewery nearby to complete the night.

“Charming”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

This is a charming restaurant in the centre of Münster. The food is traditional german cuisine, fresh and of good quality. We had dinner on a saturday night with a large group of people. Our waiter was very friendly and helpful and everybody loved the service and their food. Desserts are unfortunately not vey interesting, so we skipped that. The german sekt and red wine was delicious though!
We've been here several times, usually for lunch, and the restaurant never disappoints. Prices are very reasonable too.
