Always a good option

I used to live near Paderborn and have often eaten here. Whenever I'm back, I usually end up coming to the Alex at least once. I love the freshly prepared and tasty food, and especially the fact that they have so many vegetarian options. What I like best is the abundant breakfast buffet. A little... read more

Visited with friends, the menu was ok but personally would have preferred more choices. The food arrived reasonably quickly and was ok. Can't complain but wouldn't rave about it either. Might visit again if I happened to be in the area but wouldn't rush back for a meal.

you can tell that this restaurant has been around for a while. It really looks tired and needs a renovation. It used to be 'the' pub in Paderborn years ago but there are many other options in Paderborn now.

From what I understand, this is a restaurant chain that is spread throughout Germany. I also tried it in Mainz and Frankfurt. I stayed in paderborn for one month. This was my favourite place. Good service. Good food and very nice deserts esp the sundae. The tomato soup is nice, so is the pasta and burger.

Alex is a very nice restaurant in the Libori gallery in Paderborn. As well as serving great food every day, it serves a buffet breakfast on Sundays and Bank Holidays. 8 euros and 95 cents for adults, it is worth every penny serving everything from waffles-fresh fruit-sausages-bacon-scrambled egg-boiled eggs and bread of every description. The service is friendly and the... More
