Nice german food with a good beer selection. Had the bavarian white sausages as a starter which were ok, but the pork knuckle was absolutely phenomenal. Will come back just for that dish. + pork knuckle + beers + no reservations required - tacky decor

Der Löwe I like this place. The food is excellent - very large portions at a reasonable price. The Beer, like the food is very Bavarian. Waitresses spoke English and offered an English menu when requested. While enjoying a Beer or two, we ordered a...More

In town for a day with my US colleague and wanted to expose him to some local German food. Wiener schnitzel with all the sides and local flammkuchen - very thin crust "pizza" Overall a good experience.

Went with the family on a Sunday afternoon, very quiet (we were pretty much the only people there) and the drinks weren't the quickest. Huge Schnitzel portions, which were quite salty, but overall the family enjoyed it. Ticked a traditional German meal off the list...More

Bit of a disappointing experience. Large atmospheric bar in an ideal location, staff are friendly offering good service, beer as you would expect is also more than pleasant. Just the food is poor! The worst schnitzel I have ever had in Germany and my colleague...More

Visited the reastaurant with 3 friends expecting a good typical German cousine. The reastaurant has a pleasant atmosphere but we were not very impressed with the food. We had schnitzels and ribs and they were kind of bland. Had good beers though

Decent pub, makes authentic schnitzel. Most of them served without sauce, which makes it a dry experience. Music hammering out of the speakers switch from Vengaboys to Sensa Una Donna. All in all on par with other simple restaurants in Essen.

This is a good place to go with your friends and taste typical German cuisine and beers. Flammkuchen are simply delicious and quite huge!
