The restaurant is located in the old city. It looks traditional from the outside and that refflects in the menu too. Expect to eat well, the dishes are based on meat, potatoes and other oven cooked vegetables. The ideal place to stop by after work and grab a beer and something to eat.

Have been here twice this year and the quality is still kept on a high level. Perfect meat with great Barbecue sauce. Would recommend it anytime. Other dishes looked and tasted very good as well.

The menu is a bit limited in items but all is excellent. The salads... More

Typical and historical place in the city center. Prices are higher than similar restauarants, but also quality is good, although not on every single dish. Special dish is the schnitzel, don’t pass by without trying one.

Based on the positive reviews, I thought this would be a great experience. And the inside certainly looks promising: cozy and very German. But the food is overpriced and just not good. My schnitzel had no seasoning, was too greasy and was over cooked, the side salad was drenched in dressing and the fries were oily and undercooked. I would... More

Very nice German style retaurant. We've decided to go there without a booking but we've found a table in the garden (we were 5). Nice staff, good food (I had ribs - really good - best in Braunschweig according to the menu). Highly recommended.

Thank Piotr A
