“Less Than average food, and lots of it. ”
Reviewed 16 February 2014 via mobile

I've been to a few German restaurants here in Germany and Th is was my least enjoyable. Rude staff, and good that was borderline inedible. So much vinegar on tgey food and bland meat.

“Good German food”
Reviewed 21 December 2013

The food is traditional German. The sauerkraut is good and tasty. The beer is also good!
When it is full the noise is a bit overwhelming if you sit on the upper level.

“nice atmosphere”
Reviewed 29 August 2013

We went there one night for eating while enjoying a Champions League game.
The place has a nice atmosphere and is perfect for watching football because it has many large TVs.
The food portions were huuuuuuuuuuge! The food was very tasty but it was very fatty and oily, but... ok i ordered an osso buco, so why am i complaining? :)
As i said the portion was huge and even i couldn't finish the whole plate. The weisswurst that we had as a starter were not very good though. The service was good and friendly. The prices were very good. We actually had an amazing evening :P

“Good food, good price!”
Reviewed 19 August 2013

Went with my gf to this restaurant. Took a soup and an XL schnitzel which were both very good. Also the salad of my gf tasted delecious. You get a lot of food & drinks while it is not expensive at all. Interiour was nice as well (what you would expect in a restaurant of this price class).
They have both inside & outside a lot of space to sit.
Whenever I am back in Essen, I will definetly go here again to have dinner.

“Great Bavarian restaurant!”
Reviewed 1 February 2013

Great place to go grab some Bavarian food and beers. Loved the schnitzel jager style, and of course the beer and pretzels! Good central location in Essen. I found the service very good, fast, and friendly.
