Visited this place with a larger group of 10+ people. The staff was helpful, the food we ordered was looking good and tasted good. I ordered knuckle (Schweinehaxen), which was just made perfectly. Crispy on the outside and soft in the inside. They could serve...More

Great place to go with a group. The restaurant is tastefully if boisterously and slightly OTT decorated. Order the SCHWEINEHAXE !!!! An experience not to be forgotten. Do NOT expect Michelin star cuisine (which they don't purport to deliver), but do expect a good time...More

We had one night in Dusseldorf and wanted German food. This fitted the bill and wasn't too expensive. Service was excellent: attentive, helpful and not intrusive. Good surroundings inside are the area was on reach of the old town. I'd definitely go there again.

I ate here about 10 years ago and had the swine Hauxen(sp). That was delicious. We had wiener schnitzel this time it was good but not great. It was served with an unusual but tasty cold potato cucumber salad. It is worth a visit for...More
