The patio of this restaurant provides and awesome view overlooking the Baldeneysee. My friend and I split a beverage and a very delicious liverwurst sandwich- something of that name. It didn't sound appealing, but the taste was delicious. We drove all the way from Dusseldorf to visit this place and I am thankful for the experience.The only thing I didn't... More

The view of the Baldeneysee from the restaurant patio is truly beautiful. If you are fortunate to visit when the weather is good it is even that much better. The food and service were both well above average, but be prepared to pay above average prices as well. It is, however, worth it.

The views you get of the Baldeneysee are awesome - undoubtedly. I went there for lunch with a friend. The food was a little bit above average but it doesn't match the prices to be honest. Also the service was not satisfying. I will give this place another shot, but next time during dinner time when the full menu is... More

I really liked this modern German restaurant. It has some gorgeous views of the Ruhr river, and a very large outdoor dining area. It is secluded and luxurious. The food was good, and what I would call modern-German. Delicious lobster rolls, good duck, and a lovely sorbet for dessert. Decent wine list.

Our local friend chose this place for us to take him out to for dinner. It is an historic old house that has been renovated and extended in exceptional fashion to take advantage of its elevated location over the valley and lake below. The meals are rather unique. Great presentation and taste. We tried the soups, "three friends" seafood entree,... More

The most stonishing view in Essen to eat. Prices are higher level and food is good. Today a total failure of service. They took in a half full restaurant 1 hour to serve dinner at mothersday but out of 4 people, they forgotten one. That's poor! The last meal arrived after 1 hour 20 min.

The food was good, the service is greatly improved. The restaurant has renewed it's menu. The prices are high. The decoration is elegant and the view of the river is magnificent.

I can recommend this restaurant 100%. Very yummy food and friendly staff. Definitky go and check out the terrace and view in the summer. They serve a selection of cake and waffles in the afternoon there. A very chilled place to go and the customers are nice as well.

... and once again I had visitors from US and Africa to visit my family base in the Ruhr region. What better to do on a sunny afternoon, but enjoy the spectacular view over the "Baldeneysee" Ruhr Valley?
