Bad food and terrible service!!!!!!! Extremely slow and unfriendly. More than one and a half hour to get basic stuff. We wanted to know the ingredients of one of the salads and the waitress just read the name written on the menu and walked away! Not a place to visit if you have any allergies...

After reading very positive reviews, we expected something quite special. However, we found it disappointing in terms of food quality, atmosphere and slow but friendly service. We paid cash but useful to know that they do not accept credit cards.

Lovely relaxing meal. Well prepared and good service. Reasonably priced for the area and ideal for a lovely evening out.

Great terrace on the Rhein promenade. Service a bit slow. Dorade was very good, the rumpsteak medium, not sure about the argentinian origin. No tap water.

Found this place amongst several popular places by the Rhine. From outside doesn't look interesting. However, the inside is a mixture of unoffensive music, Art Deco, extensive drinks menu and food. Definately eorth the wslk from the railway station.

From outside does not look anything exciting. Inside is a treat. Art Deco, amazing drinks menu accompanied by unoffensive music. Sadly not eating here but would definately recommend coming here from Hauptbahnoff. Bit of a stroll but worth it. Would love to come back.

We were knackered and needed a seat and stumbled in here and were so glad! We were warmly greeted and sat down for coffee and waffles. They do everything from brunch to dinner and the food we had was good and the service friendly and efficient. Would love to come again next time we are in town.

Marcel's is a very popular place, especially when the weather is nice and the outdoor terrace is open. It's a great spot for watching people who stroll along river Rhine. For a restaurant that seems touristic, food and service are surprisingly good. Although not gourmet cuisine, everything we had was good, prices were reasonable and the service was quick and... More

I spotted Marcel's while walking along the Rhine River, heading for the Media Harbor in Düsseldorf. It looked pleasant and looks were not deceiving. I don't speak German but the staff had no problem speaking either English or French. The best surprise was the quality and presentation of the food. "Très raffiné" as they say in French - Very refined... More
