I had a chance to have an authentic Schnitzel in this restaurant. That with a tall glass of beer (whose brand I can't remember) went well together. It has this small town friendly atmosphere; I'll come back definitely when I get a chance to visit...More

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel as it was one of the very few places open on Sundays so we didn't know exactly what to expect. It's located in the center of town on a small square shared with other restaurants. The place was...More

This is probably one of the most popular restaurants in this town. A large indoor area and an impressive outdoor area in a square. Friendly and approachable staff and good priced food. Highly recommended.

We've eaten here in great weather, so we could sit outside on the terrace. They serve German fare with good beers. Our food was delicious and the service fast and friendly. Expect German portion sizes, but the food is so great, you won't regret them!

We walked through Münster looking for a place to have dinner and ended up at Grosser Kiepenkerl. As it was a very warm evening, we were lucky to find a free table on the terrace. Though we very swiftly got the menu, and the table...More

While no table was available at the time of arrival, we were offered drinks and waited by a wooden counter. The service was friendly and swift, and a table was ready momentarily. The 'Münsterländer Pfefferpotthast' - a typical Westphalian fine beef stew (Rindergulasch) with potatoes...More

Regional cuisine. Westphalian recipes using the finest ingredients, all freshly cooked. Animal welfare is important to us! We support SLOW FOOD a long time. Try our bitter house beer or the wines from our own import. Beautiful bright meeting room for up to 100 people on the 1st floor overlooking historic square.
