View is directly on river. Staff is polite and friendly . I was not in mood for some big meal so I choose side dish . Carpaccio was delight and tasteful and I took some cosmopolitan for refreshing after long hot day. Nice :D

This place has great food, drinks, service and ambience. Its really nice to dine outdoors with the view of the river and the greenery around. Everything is fresh and delicious.

One of our favourite places for lunch or dinner, and in fact where we had our wedding reception and party. Especially in the summer when the bistro is open this is a wonderful place to go. The spare ribs especially are worth recommending, be sure to get them with the sweet potato fries.

I only can tell about summer experience in the lovely beer garden of this restaurant. It is just a few steps from the ship stop where you can book a nice cruise on the river Ruhr. You can sit comfortably in the sun with a glass of beer, wine or coke and wait for the next ship. But you rather... More

We found this restaurant through TripAdvisor and thought it looked an interesting place to eat - we weren't disappointed. We walked along the river to get to the restaurant which was quite a nice walk there, though not one I would necessarily want to do at night (personal preference). When we arrived at the restaurant (there is parking if you... More

We chose here for our reception and were certainly not disappointed and more importantly nor were our 80 ish guests. It is a wonderful location, with great staff especially frau Rosa who was very helpful. The food is very good and there is a lovely wine selection.

We got a gift from the kitchen, a small cup of chicken soup, which was a nice surprise. The service was great, and the food was tasty! The extra large menus are a little silly, but something to giggle about at the table while trying to not injure your neighbor :) The sweet potato fries are awesome, and the salmon... More
