“Just great!”
Reviewed November 27, 2012 via mobile

If you're looking for authentic German, here it is, good atmosphere and good beer, you don't have to order, as soon as you sit/stand you get a lovely glass of Alt dropped infront of you, you beer mat marked and then just enjoy! Couldn't reccommend it enough!

“Probably the best...”
Reviewed November 27, 2012

in town. Found this place on our first night and the atmosphere was brilliant. Right in the heart of the old town we used as our point of reference and watering hole for the whole trip. The food is excellent and the alt beer was some of the best we'd tasted. Look out for the disappearing/appearing barrels on the bar. The food is good old fashioned German fare. The view of the coppers where they brew looks a little like a Disney set. For the best seats to watch people from turn left as you enter and sit about half way down. Loved the way they marked your beer mat to keep a tally of your drinks. Try the Kirsch as well. If they did rooms I'd have stayed there.

“Great atmosphere”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

How great to find a place that is really humming and packed out with good Dusseldorfers of a certain age all enjoying themselves and tucking in to the good home cooking. On a Tuesday night!! I had wonderful black pudding (home made) with apple and potato mash, a local speciality, and my husband had bratwurst. We shared the plates. Beer slips down!

“Just what we wanted”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

We asked some locals at the winefest for restaurant advice, and they recommended several breweries. This was the first one we saw. It was our first day in Germany; I wanted bratwurst and my husband wanted sauerbraten. He had the good beer, I chose another white wine. We got exactly what we wanted, including the red cabbage I asked to have added to my order. Indeed, it is sort of like comfort food, wonderful German comfort food. Outside the place was crowded and bustling, but inside it was quiet and we chose inside, where the service was fully attentive and friendly. I liked the motto printed on the wall: "Is was gar ist, trink was klar is, sag was wahr ist."
