Our group was very pleased to have made the choice of this establishment for dinner. We shared an order of spargel (a treat for two first-timers), entrees were schnitzel, a variety plate with sausage, beef, and pork kebabs, and one order of the famous roasted pig knuckle. Don't let the name scare you, the "knuckle" is a large section of... More

If you want the fatally fantastic combo of beer and meat, that's the must place to be when you're in Hannover l. Pork dishes served with potato skins served with the most heavenly cheese dip! You can find all sorts of German beers to accompany your meal, and on top, the legendary German Apfelkuchen! Fantastisch!!!

The service is friendly but they don't listen when you order. They got three orders wrong and in a German restaurant you cannot insist on getting what you ordered. The quality... More

My girlfriend and I jumped on a tram to head out and visit this restaurant as it had good reviews and specialises in Pork. I was hanging for a Pork Knuckle and was not disappointed, it was MASSIVE! Very well priced too. It would have been slightly nicer if they cooked it for a little longer so the crackling was... More

This is a great German bistro, with classic pork and beef dishes, an excellent chopped pork in a fresh mushroom wine sauce with roti, for example. Very reasonably priced, owner and staff very friendly. Food quality very high. Ten minute walk from Sheraton.
