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?

Only been here for there outside service: small meals, snacks, and drinks in a kind of beer garden. It's really wonderful and a relaxing place to sit, chat and enjoy the best view of Lake Baldeney.

I have enjoyed dining at Jagdhaus Schellenberg when I visit Essen. If its a chilly day you can dine indoors but dining in the garden with views of the River Baldeney make a visit to Jagdhaus Schellenberg memorable. My sister and her family love the place as they are very accommodating of young families too. It is large enough for... More

I visited recently with friends and thoroughly enjoyed the meal. We all chose a set menu and found the flavors to be really well-blended and everything seemed very fresh. The venison main was well-prepared as was a swordfish dish and scallop starter. Each dish was a very interesting mix of flavors. The dessert featured woodruff, a new food for me,... More
