This restaurant was busy on the Friday evening of my visit but the welcoming staff found me a table close to the kitchen. Service was a little slow but the staff were also dealing with a large party group at the time. I ordered rumpsteak and when it arrived it was cooked as requested with fried potatoes and vegetables The meal was ample and very tasty. For dessert I opted for the minicrepe and this was equally delicious. I would recommend this restaurant to others.

Not a bad steak - just OK, but service was very poor. Ignored when I turned up, and then mid meal I simply could not get anyone's attention for a top up on my beer. Spoilt the whole thing,

Restauarant was fairly empty the weeknight I visited. Only thing I really fancied on the menu was a steak with rostii potatoes and a side salad.
Ordered 0.5L of German house red to accompany the beef and to be fair it was very good.
Steak arrived after around 20 mins and was well cooked with nice flavour. Rostii potatoes were poor - basically, flat flavourless pancakes, straight out the freezer and fried.
Salad was obviously freshly made and tasted good.
Service was pleasant and cost was around 42E.

I was looking for a place to enjoy a meal (dinner) after a hectic day at the Dusseldorf, I found this restaurant on the City Guide (near to my hotel), I walked in,
The waiter was acting as to (rush) me to order.
When I placed my order for a plate of green salad and a steak, she just ran.
Took quite sometime to bring the salad, no bread was offered, so I asked for some bread.
One third into my Slald plate, comes my requested steak.
Now I am confused, do I continue with my salad and let the steak go cold, or shall I have my salad as a dessert?
I couldn't tell why was all this happening to me, what is my features, race, or they were not running a good place.
All in all, I will not go there again.
