This place is just wonderful. It seems to have grown haphazardly around a fixed ancient bar. The exterior is made up of bits of pole, wood, Wire and decking. A pub designer would not think of this except in his nightmares, but it works, Spent...More

We've been regulars here for years, and I actually don't know how they make money. It's homely and comfortable and the food is brilliant. A truly enormous Eisbein with trimmings is R89, and it's always delicious. The menu is spiced up with Zebra steaks, Ostrich...More

Im Eimer was one of those places that I'd wanted to try because it has a good reputation. We booked for Sunday lunch and even though it wasn't a special day, the restaurant was fairly full. Unfortunately the girl in charge (not our waiter) showed...More

There was a good log fire burning, dim lights and cluttered with all sort of ornaments. Best to order eisbein when you book as it easily takes 40 minutes to prepare. It is not easy to find, very dusty and not so clean inside.
