Used our JBH half board vouchers for this restaurant and we were really pleased. Great staff and great food. 8 of us all had the mixed sausage platter with suarkraut. A change for the usual buffet meal, but really good. Decent german beers as well.

As a German I had to try it out but unfortunately I brought the whole family. I know Der Keller has existed for as long as I can think and I've always heard good things about it but I cannot agree. Asparagus season is big in Germany and I miss it so much that we decided to give the special... More

It was our first time there. It was our sons birthday and his choice to visit a German restaurant as we are from Germany. The service is very friendly but sadly a lot of food on the menu was not available. The Schnitzel was good but we Germans are spoiled so we know what a great schnitzel has to taste... More

Der Keller serves typical Bavarian food, and the menu is full of what Southern German cuisine has to offer. The service is impeccable, the ambiance a bit dampened by the cliché folklore music. The food is good but not excellent throughout. The Pork schnitzel has not been tender at two occasions, the panade is too fatty. The sausage platter with... More

Dear Susa, thank you very much for your wonderful feedback regarding the food and service. I have addressed the shortfalls and suggestions to the Chef de cuisine and we will look closely into this. All ingredients including the tender veal we use for the schnitzel are specially imported. The pricing is well in line with similar venues in 5 *... More
