The entrance is a bit unpreposessing, but it hides a lovely German/Mallorcan restaurant - a real gem! We went on a really hot and steamy night, but despite the humidity the food more than hit the spot, the portions were most generous and there was an eclectic selection of gin as aperitif to start the meal off. The really high... More

I have ordered aubergine as a starter... More

German/Mallorcan cuisine. Unique in my experience and well worth visiting. A highlight was the the Mejilliones al tio Pepe: mussels in a .bread and vegetable vinaigrette with Mallorcan garlic and lemon. This was even better than its description - one of the best starters I have ever eaten. Outstanding

We visited this lovely neighbourhood restaurant with a large party over Easter weekend. The service was impeccable. Very attentive and friendly. The food was quite good.

I visited the Restaurant "Bonner Hof" with my family a couple of weeks ago. As expected after reading the reviews, it was a really enjoyable evening. The friendly waitress warmly welcomed us and showed us our table. She recommended the "Ingwer-Salbei-Limette-Schorle" since I wasn't able to drink because I had to drive. I couldn't have enough of it haha :)... More

Definitely the best vegetarian restaurant in town: the money spent is totally worth the food and kindness of staff. I will come back more and more

I went with friends to this restaurant, and I found it a very intersting place where have our dinner. Warm atmosphere, gentle and skilled waitresses and, above all, a great selection of spanish meats. They, also, offer vegan menus. Believe me, a very positive experience.

Bonner Hof is without any doubt one of the best restaurants I have ever been to. The service was superb, even though we arrived late and had some special requests. I had the Argentinian fillet steak which was on point!

allthough a bit far from city center, this place is one of the best restaurants in Essen! Food was very tasty to all of our table of five. Dishes looked appealing+ staff was very helpful and friendly. Definitely come back here in next visit.
