I have passed this restaurant on numerous occasions and had always wanted to try it. So during a city stay with my wife (who is a Schnitzel fan) we decided to eat there. We sat at a window table which was open so we had a great view of this busy Altstadt street. We got served straight away and had drinks on our table within a few minutes. It took a while to chose our meals and the wait for them was reasonable. I ordered the Schweinske Platte from the card on the table and my wife ordered a Paprika Schnitzel from the menu. My wife originally wanted something different but with the speck (bacon) removed, but the waiter said this was not possible as the sauces was already made.My meal was described 4 different steaks Hacksteak, Turkey, Pork and another which Our cannot remember. this also included fried potatoes, green beans and salad. 1 all the steaks was small and thin (some just bitesize) 2 way too much green beans which were drenched in a sticky bechamel sauce. 3 the salad was just a few pieces thrown on top and within 4 the fried potatoes was ok. this nearly 11 euros. My wifes Schnitzel was thin and dry. While we waited we received 2 big hunks of bread (no spreads) but we ate this after our meal, tasted good. Reasonable drink prices with good selection. I think we will not visit again, instead going to our favourite Louisianas 50 metres away on the same street

My wife and i had a dinner here Saturday December 8th, 2012.
We made the mistake of going at 18.30, on a Saturday... so it was hellish busy.
Surprise, surprise, we were seated within 5 minutes. The restaurant was full, but we were given menus right away, got a drink in front of us within 10 minutes.
We ordered, i took the Fritz-Schwein XXL, which is a huge(!!) schnitzel, with fries and salad.
My wife took the Schweinesteak "Tessin" which was a pork steak served in a pan with spinach, mushrooms, tomato and rosti potato rounds, in a delicious cream sauce.
Both were delicious, and i was very happy that neither of us had taken a starter as it would have been impossible to finish if we would have done so.
I highly recommend this restaurant. The two main courses as well as three drinks cost us less then 30 euro.

Had a nice meal here last weekend whilst I was in Dusseldorf. They had a good selection, staff were friendly. Prices were comparable with other restaurants in the area. I had a BBQ Burger which was really nice although a lot of sliced chilli`s in it. My friends had the curried sausage, schnizels or macaroni cheese. All were tasty. Beer was reasonably priced and avaliable in 1.5litre jugs.

Would eat here again.

The first time, in January, we came by chance, this time we came back by choice.
The restaurant is Bolkerstrasse, with tables both inside and outside. Many dishes of meat, sauces and salad.
This time we tried the beef with gorgonzola sauce and it was really good.
The prices are good, we spent about 20 € each, including 2 beers and 2 coffees.
