Rustic German food. Rather expensive for the quality of the food. Very crowded on Friday night. Best reserve.

I ate a currywurst and had an Alte Beer at the Zum restaurant in the main train station. It was reasonably priced and very tasty.

Came here for a business dinner with a group of people - food is OK - our waiter was actually very pleasant - However we were told off by another waiter who yelled at us in the rudest possible German way for being too loud - mind you that people in the back of the restaurant were singing

I was here with a large group for business and enjoyed an enormous plate of oxtail stew. Very savory and enough for two!

Right on Bolkergasse in the center of the Altstadt is this typical Düsseldorf Bierhalle. It features in of the best Altbier and typical German food. The menu is in English and makes sense. The bier is not to light and not to heavy and most of the time you find a place to sit.

I visited this restaurant in the old city of dusseldorf on a rainy sat afternoon. Surprisingly it was quiet and not busy. Menu was quite extensive of the usual German offerings but surprisingly no wurst in the menu. I ordered the house beer which was tasty.

I walked in here randomly. Wonderful and simple food (Nürnberger) with a pint of weissbier saved my day. Very good worth for the price. I will definitely visit again in the future.
