If you're looking for a German experience, Schumacher is one of the places to go in Düsseldorf. The food is great, and so is the atmosphere, but don't expect the service of a michelin star restaurant. And remember, German food is about the taste, not the presentation.

Worried about getting a table, they waved us right in even though it was busy. Served us their beer and we were on our way to a great night. Traditional German food.

This is a local place and you have to get used to the flow of things. The service was very efficient here and they automatically bring you another one of their beers. German food very excellent. The cooked pork knuckle was very tender.

Nice location for this very typical German restaurant.
Food is delicious - I had the famous pork meat and I can tell you it was soooo tasty. Served with potatos and salad, a perfect match.
And how not to mention the home made brewed beer...?!?!? Very very tasty....it goes down so easily...(and waiters know it very well....no time for you to finish a glass and the following is already on your table...).
Last thing to mention is the dessert - apple strudel is amazing, so very delicious!
Prices are well in line with service and food offer, I would say that's a very good place for an informal dinner.
Two cons (easily overcome) -> 1) menu is only in German....so be patient when you go thru it; 2) the restaurant is in a very anonymous and somehow "bad" area...there is nowhere to walk after dinner so if you plan to enjoy a cup later, or a beer, no way but taking the car and drive again.
Very last thing: it's very difficult to book a table, especially if you're not German! I tried calling at the restaurant but the lady whom I talked to told me that reservation was not allowed. Well, once got there, table next to mine got a reservation for 8 people (german surname of course) even though nobody showed up...! :-) Anyway there are plenty of sits...and in case it's packed, just get to the bar for a beer while waiting...
Apart of that, I would warmly recommend this place!

I had visited Schumacher a year or so back, the ambience, food (especially the roast leg pf pork) and the home brewed beer was to die for!!!! It was an unforgettable experience and will strongly suggest a visit if you are visiting Dusseldorf.
