it was a nice restaurant. Since the past 10 years we regularly visited The Keller. As German nationals you just need from time to time a Wiener Schnitzel or Pork Knuckles and we always enjoyed this Restaurant. Last weekend we felt that we unfortunately have to break with this tradition. The Pork Knuckle was crispy and looked very pleasant, but... More

After a busy week at work, we decided meat and beer was in order for dinner.

Der Keller is probably the oldest German Restaurant in town - the original version opened back in 1977 at the then Chicago Beach Hotel. The present version was set up in 1997 when the Jumeirah Beach Hotel opened. I don't recall the last time I was here but the four of us had dinner last night. A handful of diners... More

As always great food and lovely staff. Schnitzel were perfect as were the sausages and saukrat. You don't have to book. Kids are welcome and prices not unreasonable considering it is situated in a 5 star hotel. Would highly recommend

Sad pastiche of what a German restaurant should be...more like Disneyland than Dubai. I should have taken one look at the fake decor and turned around as things didn't get any better. This was my least favourite dining experience in the Jumeriah Beach Hotel. They crank out and endlessly bland and boring selection of dumbed down German favourites. All edible... More
