Beautiful location on the river Ruhr. Summer time must be the right season to enjoy the biergarten and the walkway along the river bank! American Sunday Brunch ! Good mix of fresh vegetables, meat and sweets to satisfy any taste. Family and kids friendly. Friendly and professional staff. All in all very good value !

View is directly on river. Staff is polite and friendly . I was not in mood for some big meal so I choose side dish . Carpaccio was delight and tasteful and I took some cosmopolitan for refreshing after long hot day. Nice :D

This place has great food, drinks, service and ambience. Its really nice to dine outdoors with the view of the river and the greenery around. Everything is fresh and delicious.

One of our favourite places for lunch or dinner, and in fact where we had our wedding reception and party. Especially in the summer when the bistro is open this is a wonderful place to go. The spare ribs especially are worth recommending, be sure to get them with the sweet potato fries.

You can sit comfortably in the sun with a glass of beer, wine or coke and wait for the next ship. But you rather... More

We found this restaurant through TripAdvisor and thought it looked an interesting place to eat - we weren't disappointed. We walked along the river to get to the restaurant which was quite a nice walk there, though not one I would necessarily want to do at night (personal preference). When we arrived at the restaurant (there is parking if you... More

We chose here for our reception and were certainly not disappointed and more importantly nor were our 80 ish guests. It is a wonderful location, with great staff especially frau Rosa who was very helpful. The food is very good and there is a lovely wine selection.
