The restaurant is "linked" to the Italian restaurant next-door, so you can choose among German or Italian dishes. Schintzels made every-one else happy and I had the salmon + pasta. Service was good. Funny part is after we paid our bill and were walking back to the hotel I realized that I was given the wrong bill (total was too... More

Had supper here one night. The food was very tasty, and they had a good white beer on tap. The patio has a great view of the Rhein. The staff members were great and they all spoke very good English which was very helpful.

This is a perfectly good riverside cafe and restaurant with excellent staff and good food. The sausage and mash was very Germanic with excellent blood (black) pudding. Reasonable prices make this an excellent stopover during a Rhine stroll. Easy access to the cable car and river boats.

Nicely decorated restaurant where you can choose typical German food or Italian food. Service was ok, portions are big and price was not excessive. Drank a really nice moezel white wine!

The food was great, the inside of the restaurant is beautifully decorated, it looks like a museum, but when me and my wife came we were not welcomed by the waitress, and felt the whole dinner we were ambarrassing her. No smile and mistake on the order.

Interesting decor, lots of memorabilia, which added to the charm. We had pizza, pasta, pork knuckle and German sausages. Staff were very helpful, and the food was served quite quickly. My personal favorite was the sausage dish, but really, all were quite nice. Would definitely go again

They have a great variety from schnitzel , spaghetti to favourite German dishes . They have lots of antiques on display , to make the visit very interesting . Great... More

We visited this restaurant on Saturday (early) evening at 18:20 on 11 July 2015. We had tickets for ‘Cats’ at the Ehrenbreitstein Fortress in Koblenz. So, I make a reservation a few days before at the Pegelhaus, but they didn’t want to honor their coupon in the Gutscheinbuch B-MY Koblenz 2015. So we decided to eat at Amalfi instead. I... More

Lots of fascinating items about the restaurant. Casual atmosphere. English available on menu. Regular pub style food. We had speck pizza (think bacon bits), schnitzel, stroganoff, etc. the starters were popular with my group. The pasta with the stroganoff seemed homemade and was delicious.

Great location along the river and full view of the boats passing. As for the menu, large selection and goes across the board. It was good average food....their fries might be lacking but the rest of the choices were excellent.
