Our 3rd visit to Dusseldorf and we have visited the Altstadt Restaurant the same amount of times. It serves up a great selection of traditional German fare - think large Pork Knuckles, piles of Sauerkruat, succulent schnitzels and bratwurst that are bursting at the seams (not so good for the cholesterol levels I would suspect!). The servings are large and... More

Choosing somewhere to eat in Düsseldorf can be a little daunting with hundreds of places to choose from in the space of a couple of streets. Stumbled across this place by accident and glad we did. Nothing special but well cooked food, large portions, friendly and efficient service (not the norm in Düsseldorf). I had a mix grill for €15... More

Excellent service accompanied by excellent food wine and beer in a typical German restaurant that you can expect in the Altstad of Dusseldorf

We stopped here for lunch as we were looking for 'traditional' fare. All along this street, you have a great selection of many specialty food types ranging from Greek, Lebanese, Korean, Italian, Spanish, Fish... Son opted for the special of the day which was a huge Angus Burger, typical toppings but had a curry-flavored mayo style dressing, came with tzatziki... More

Had chicken with chantarelles, tasted quite good but was disappointed over the sauce which killed the good taste of the chantarelles. There was not too many wines to choose from. Service was good as the prices.

A busy restaurant, probably because of the good location. The interieur is cheap, it looks like a Greek restaurant even though the menu has German dishes. This restaurant is focused on volume over quality. Upside is that your food will come fast. I ate a schnitzel which was good, the salad basic and the vegtables little overcooked.

Firstly the food - quite simple, but, I have to say very well cooked. I had pork, steak, and turkey, small pieces of each on one plate. Of course each has a different cooking requirement, but each was perfectly cooked, and hot. Secondly the amiably casual service did not hide a professional approach, and our waiters (two of them) were... More
