A typical and traditional German pub with big wooden tables and chairs and an old fashioned, spartan decor and style. Good range of local beers to sample with "proper" food, home-cooked style and portion sizes for hungry guys, like me. I chose a "Weiner Schnitzel with Roasted Potatoes and Mixed Salad". Boy....was it great ...... a huge (covered the entire... More

Walked in and sat down. A couple of minutes passed and a lady approached us and said "what you want?" Okay possibly a translation problem. I said white wine please and her reply was "no". okay. And then she walked off. So we left.

I travel for business in Gernany regularly and therefore have eaten my fair share of traditional German food....so after reading all the reviews here I was looking forward to eating at this restaurant. Service was swift and friendly, prices moderate. The quality of my dish was no more than average however. The schnitzel was unbreaded, not too tasty and pretty... More

Visited this place for lunch while in Dusseldorf. We were the only people in, they had people working in, banking with hammers etc. Really disappointing, and they didn't have time to look after us while eating. we had to look for them to get a second drink

We went here with several people and had a good time. The beer was never getting empty, the staff was friendly and the meals were really good! It's worth the money and the serving is way enough, even if you are really hungry! Only minus: no card payment, neither credit nor debit cards.

We met a friend and went to Zur Uel for lunch on her recommendation. The beer was good but the food lacked. My pork knuckle/shank while large in portion (too much) was cold in the center and the mashed potatoes served as a side was overpowered with nutmeg. The atmosphere is shabby and rather sad. Surely there are better Brew... More

We had Schnitzel for lunch. One Wiener Art and one Jaeger style. Came with salad. It is not expensive, quality ratio matches the price. If you are hungry it is ok. Nothing else to add.

This is a wonderful pub on the very lively Rattingerstraße with some of the nicest staff you could wish to meet. We had just been to BEUYS BAR and were more or less bar and pub hopping when we chanced on this superb pub. As it was a nice evening ,chilly but dry we decided to sit outside were a... More
