Today we had a dinner in Zum Schlussel In Old town Düsseldorf. Food was great and atmosphere like old German beer pub. Easy to reach with many pub around. Service is good , but need to check bill in the end , because to be incl. some beers more seems to be usual.

We were looking for a German Pub and walked into a genuine German Pub that brews its own signature dark beer, "Schlüssel Altbier" which is served up in 200 ml glasses without ordering it so you have to be quick to say no if you don't want it! That said if you are a beer drinker you must give it... More

Cold and always wanted to go into this place so thought that I'd start the evening with a hot chocolate. Not a problem, I thought so I ordered a hot chocolate and as an afterthought said 'with whipped cream'...well you'd think I'd sent the waitress to jump in the Rhine. She started shouting 'WE'RE A BREWERY NOT A CAFE' etc.etc.... More

Our second evening in Altstadt and we plumped for the Hausbrauerei Zum Schlussel. We were not disappointed. The traditional Alt Schlussel bier satisfied tremendously, and the Wiener Schnitzels and traditional sausage meals were enjoyed by all of us. Yum. Great atmosphere and a really friendly waiter made it an evening to remember. Highly recommended.

Always busy (often packed) and lively, this place serves only traditional German fare, and frankly does it well. Alt bier refreshed constantly (learn the process to stop it coming if you don't want it :) ) and great service from the multi-lingual staff. If you are a local or a tourist this is a great place to sample a little... More

Another authentic German restaurant with great food and beer. We all ate "German" and had amazing meals, including pork knuckle, red cabbage, dumplings, sauerkraut etc etc. Certainly worth visiting this place

Great food, swift service, nice traditional German atmosphere. 3 of us. Friends ordered the house special burger and the roast beef - said was good. I had the Schnitzel with chips and a starter salad. Nice tender pork, nice crispy thin batter. Got good table next to window. Like the German set up of just sitting and grabbing a table... More
