Perfect place to get some good German food. We came before the game and the ambience was very good, therefore was the service a bit slow, but nothing horrible. We took the Pfanne for two people and was more than enough to get an idea of the Westfalen Gastronomie.

Very reasonable drink prices. Very good place to watch football. Outdoor is really nice I'm the day for sin and good heaters in the evening. Great atmosphere for football.

It was a cold afternoon, and the outside patio was empty as expected. The inside has 2 levels of seating. We sat in a booth on the first floor. The staff was attentive. The beer is traditionally and carefully poured, then presented to your table! Cool ! We ordered Goulash soup which was so very flavorful and rich. It came... More

This is one of the busiest bars in the square. Great position to enjoy an afternoon or evening beer in the sunshine. Service can be a little slow when it's really busy. Really recommend the Pork Knuckle if you're feeling hungry, beautifully done with a bed of mash potato.

Based on the tripadvisor recommendations I chose to eat here but unfortunately my expectations were higher than the quality of the food. I ordered the "Marktpfanne" wit steak from ox, pig and turkey and baked potatoes with vegetables. All was placed together in a pan and served. The vegetables were tasteless the baked potatoes were very greasy and the steaks... More

It was quite lively here when I visited on a late Sunday afternoon in April. A football match involving Borussia Dortmund was showing on TV and many customers were watching this. However I just managed to get a table, and along with my beer had the local dish known as Himmel und Erde (heaven and earth). This consists of black... More

...then it's a good choice. Ate there 3 times, always ordered Schnitzel. Not specially good, but OK. Take a beer and sit outside at the square during summer time, it's nice, especially when you want some rest from shopping.
