Huge place, offering traditional German and contemporary food. Traditional deco. Family place with many different rooms permitting large celebrations. Food is good and wine card too. Value for money good.

We dined at Overkamp’s a very famous restaurant in Dortmund, with family on December 1, 2017, in the middle of the famous days when the restaurant annually serves 3,000 roasted geese in 30 days – 100 a day. The wait was a little long, given that we had reservations, but the wait was worth it. The tomato soup was hot, very tasty, obviously house-made and not canned. The salads were fresh and the bread was a specialty – served with spiced goose fat, which gave real flavor to the bread and a hint of what was to come. The proprietor, Herr Overkamp, personally brings to the table and carves each goose, and watching him is an experience in and of itself. Each bird is perfectly done, and one can choose one of the two choices – breast or leg and thigh – it’s all dark meat anyway, so take your pick. The goose is served with red cabbage, a stuffed apple, and potato dumplings, and lots of gravy. Nothing was other than wonderful. It’s certainly a place to which I would like to return.

Unexpected good find. No one spoke English but the food spoke for itself. The service was on the slow side though. You will get charged a fee for ordering simple tap water, so you might as well buy a real drink.

The food is so-so. Rather big portions heavy on the meaty side.
I had white asparagus, which was quite good. Others at the table had all kinds of meat, mainly pork. Pork might be the better choice, the lamb shank looked overcooked and covered with a sauce of unknown origin. Nobody at our table got their steak cooked as they wanted it. Overcooking seems to be the standard here,
