After a couple of bad experiences at Der Keller last summer, we went back to check if the situation had improved. First of all we would like to praise Steve, the new manager of the restaurant, very kind and attentive to customer needs. The service has definitely improved, and also the quality of food. Our favorite dish, the crispy pork... More

Being UAE citizens we are frequent visitors to JBH, but recently we have found a HUGE drop in customer service, so much so on our visit last week we felt the need to complain. We feel this hotel is not interested in UAE citizens only tourists!! What a refreshing change to actually find a member of staff willing to listen... More

Good German beers with traditional German food for the ones who miss das Vaterland. Loved the Wiener Schnitzels and Bretzels. Nice and decent service. Off course is the German food not known for their subtle cuisine, but that is not the point here. It is however as close as you can get to German cuisine. It is a cozy little... More

I have never written a review on trip advisor. I felt compelled to write this after the appalling experience we had at the Der Keller located in the Jumeriah Beach Hotel.

Sorry to see that Der Keller is no longer at the levels we have known for several years. We have been there at the beginning of August with a friend.
