Visited the bar for lunch before the Dortmund v Bayern Supercup Final. Friendly staff and atmosphere, very good traditional German food, decent beer and rustic decor. Enjoyed it to the point that we went back for some drinks later on.

We wanted traditional German food and our German relatives took us here. The food fulfilled our expectations (plenty of pork, goods-sized portions). They serve Hovel beer, a Dortmund favorite. We were there on a nice August evening and had a table in the first row...More

Just been there with a mate. The waiter was standing around and had a good chat with other customers, probably friends of him , instead of serving us. We had Schnitzel, food was slightly above average. But definitely overpriced. My recommendation , go somewhere else.

Good sample of local food. Friendly staff. Beside the fact that is in a very good location is not so full with tourists, it preserves local atmosphere. A must if you spend one evening in Dortmund.
