Have been here twice this year and the quality is still kept on a high level. Perfect meat with great Barbecue sauce. Would recommend it anytime. Other dishes looked and tasted very good as well.

Mutter Habenicht is the traditional German food restaurant of excellent quality. The portions are really generous and food is excellent. The ambiance and decoration of the place is very unique: you'll feel really in Germany there. Staffs are friendly even if they do not speak English. The menu is a bit limited in items but all is excellent. The salads... More

Typical and historical place in the city center. Prices are higher than similar restauarants, but also quality is good, although not on every single dish. Special dish is the schnitzel, don’t pass by without trying one.

Based on the positive reviews, I thought this would be a great experience. And the inside certainly looks promising: cozy and very German. But the food is overpriced and just not good. My schnitzel had no seasoning, was too greasy and was over cooked, the side salad was drenched in dressing and the fries were oily and undercooked. I would... More

Very nice German style retaurant. We've decided to go there without a booking but we've found a table in the garden (we were 5). Nice staff, good food (I had ribs - really good - best in Braunschweig according to the menu). Highly recommended.

The ambiance is nice and typically German, however I found the food and service to be lacking. German cuisine is no shining star, of course, but my dish (I had one of the seasonal pfifferling dishes) was seriously oversalted and everything drowned in bacon and its rendered fat. Unfortunately, the delicate taste of the chanterelles was totally drowned out by... More

This restaurant is a true "gem" and is a must visit for a great dining experience! Great atmosphere and great German food well prepared and very tasty! Our order of ribs arrived promptly and the meat just fell away from the bones ( as it should!) and sauce and accompanying potatoes just added to the meal. We sat in the... More
