I was a first time visitour to this restaurant (small tavern) but my collegues visited before and I was really suprised about the taste of this pork. The restaurant is small and inside is very hot (summer) but it is worth it. The food was really good. I ate Schweinshaxe and it was great.

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!
