The atmosphere of the place is genuine traditional German. The service is great and the food is amazing. The gulash is perfectly Hungarian. The steak is mindblowing. The servings are big, are small. Do give it a try!

A brilliant night time spot in the heart of Essen. I spent a considerable amount of time here and always found it friendly and full of the spirit of this lovely German town. Brilliant.

it has an offer of german beers and sausages, it is a good place to have a small dinner outside; some problems in ordering if you do not speak german, which is my case, overcome with the good will of all sides.

If you like local tradition and simple food, then Amputte is a must for a quick meal and a couple of beers. Service if friendly, and there is a great atmosphere.
