We will definitely eat there again next time we are in Dortmund.

Wonderful place to get together with the company for a couple of glasses of beer and eat! The food is tasty as well as beer. Сhoice among the food is also quite large.

Wow this is a nice place with an excellent menu for all tastes. This is a treat for sure, the steaks are well sized and cooked to perfection, a 230g is plenty as you can get too much. Price on the high side but it is a special place and beautiful location

Had dinner twice and ordered steak on both says. The salad was good, and so was the service by Khad. It is not too expensive and seemed popular but was not noisy.

Crowded on Saturday evenings, but friendly staff and really excellent food! Didn't like the beer there, but that's the brand sold everywhere in Dortmund. The dishes are really worth the waiting for a table!

This is a fantastic restaurant. Great atmosphere and impressive food. Tried both the Lamb and the Pepper Steak and loved them both. Well worth a visit but best to get there early or make a reservation.

Thank Gav B
