Even though we have been waiting for half an hour to get a table the overall experience was good. Friendly staff, good food. If you want to understand what is the German cuisine it is a good place to go.

The food is traditional German. Lots of different meat dishes. We started with fresh asparagus steamed in butter with bernaise sauce. Main course: Mixed grill. Turkey, pork, beef, vegetables and potatoes. Very nice and tasty. We ask the waiter to recommend a red vine. He fetched a 2013 TRNJAK but did not tell us it was 48 euro. Nice vine... More

Well what can I say? We come to Düsseldorf we say let's try somewhere else, but once again after trying another similar restaurant we came back to the Altstadt restaurant! This restaurant is always well attended, however we went early which was a nice change as it is always rammed packed and with a queue of people, but the wait... More

A great place for friends, families and business meetings. With a good service and quality food. Price around 25€ or 30€ per person. Typical Dusseldorf restaurant and a must at Altstadt. We recommend it.

We visited here at Easter & the meal we had (Steak & Knuckle of Pork) was fantastic!!!! When we decided to spend new year in Dusseldorf I just knew we had to eat here again as we had enjoyed it so much previously. Sadly we were unable to eat here on NYE as they were fully booked but managed to... More

Great steak, fried potatoes with onions. The boss ordered a side salad to give the illusion of healthy eating. Desserts as big as your boots! Friendly staff and a warm welcome on a cold night. Who could want more?

Food did not taste so good and was very greasy. We had different meals, but both did not feel good after dinner. They used too much butter, or fat, or oil or something: meal was difficult to digest. Service was not good either; we got different drinks than we ordered on the menu. We did not have to wait lang... More

We came here on Saturday night at about 9pm in the hope that they might be able to squeeze us in as we were starving! The waiter was lovely and said that we would have a 15 minute wait or we could take the small table by the door - I can understand why it was free during peak time... More

I was on my own and decided on this place. The waitress was helpful and spoke English and the menu was also in English. I had a beer, the mushrooms to start with and the mixed grill. The portions were generous and the food was lovely. The waitress was excellent and the bill was fine.

I've never had so many bad meals in one city as I did in Dusseldorf, including this one. Between the small space and cramped tables, this old town restaurant had a claustrophobic feel to it, as well as being touristy. After being seated, it took a bit of time before my order was taken. The fare here is typical German.... More
