Schwein James is primarily a take away serving traditional German pork dishes in one of the busiest streets in the altstadt. But it does have some no frills bench seating outside and a beer licence which enables you to sit and enjoy the dishes.

This place didn't disappoint. The meat was tasty, juicy, crispy and delicious. We had the pork knuckle of course! Unreal. Tasted like I was in Bavaria again!

Honestly, its the best meals, juicy and tastefully without too salty, also it's not expansive. Casual dinning is a nice place to go for sure. I want to go back again.

When ever I am in Dusseldorf I make it a must to get a Pork plate here. There is a terrace where you can meet many visitors.

Sit outside and order a Schweine Brotchen, a hot pork roll made from rotisserie oork knuckles turning in the window of this small basic cafe/restaurant. Cheap, cheerful and delicious!

This place might not be very hidden in old town but nevertheless is a true gem. We where urging some authentic german food and i rememembered reading about this place on Yelp. What it lacks in ambiance it certainly makes up for in food, quality, value and service. We ordered the pork knuckle (schweinehaxe) and schnitzel with roasted potatoes. We... More

This is the first day of my trip. After hours of flying from Hong Kong, we were hungry and tired. We had the knuckles and beer. Food is very nice and also the waitress is friendly and helpful!
