All your porky desires will be satisfied at this simple, straightforward restaurant. Sit down and tuck into giant portions of tender, moist roast pork with crisp crackling or flavoursome sausages with sides of sauerkraut and potatoes. Service is friendly and prices are very fair given the serving size.

If you're looking for typical local German grilled, Schweine Janes is the restaurant you're looking for!! The Schweinehaxe ( Grilled Pork Knuckle) is the dish to die for. Don't forget to order a glass of Altbier( local dark beer from Duesseldorf) . Fast service, awesome food, friendly staff and worth every single penny!

More of a cafe than a restaurant, and I normally only go for the takeaway menu. Very nice food though and the mustard is the best I have tasted. Also very causal friendly staff.

The food is very plain, wonder how come its number 2 restaurant in Dusseldorf ? And due to I went there few times already, I've noticed the shaking unstable food quality and also the menu price is verified of different timing!!!! During the trade fair time they offered more expensive menu card than normal time! Find it hard to believe and dishonest ! Not recommended at all !!
And it's really just a bistro rather than restaurant !

A small store-front located on the "party" street with late night hours is typically not associated with good food, but Schweine Janes is a rare exception. Yes you can argue that the restaurant is operated by Slovenians and hence not traditional German cuisine, but you can't argue with the quality and taste. The smell of pork shoulders and knuckles roasting on spits will draw you in instantly, and the meat tastes as good as it looks and smells. We ordered sauerkraut on the side but wouldn't recommend it unless you like potato in your sauerkraut. Get the pork but skip the sides!
