Rich menu for all tastes. The Greek appetisers are excellent. I like the variety of meat and the servings are generous. We go there quite often, it's always full, nany anniversaries and parties of 10 or more. It's always fun and a friendly atmosphere. It is a family restaurant, Argiri and Maria are the heart of the place. Maria coming... More

This restaurant isn't as vegetarian friendly as I hoped. The food is more traditionally German, but saying that, I had a lovely Mozzarella salad there.

Was at this place for our pin bowling event. My god it was amazing. It was a vintage setup in one of the rooms behind. It was just amazing being there. We were 15 people together. With food and drinks on the go, this is a place to be. The hosts were taking good care.

Been to this resto many times with friends and family every time I am in Aachen. The decor is basic but the host and staff are very friendly. The menu offers seasonal German dishes like white asparagus and the main menu has simple but tasty German and Greek dishes. My mum (73yrs old) says the tsatsiki is the best in... More

The atmosphere of the restaurant and the service are fine. The food is not spectacularthe menu offers maybe too many options (german, greek, italian food) and we did not choose the best ones. Well-located.

Simply great. We found this place accidentally walking through the streets of Aachen, it was quite full - it is always a good sign. The place is great, very tasty food, big portions and unbelievably good prices! Definitely going back!

As soon as you enter the doors you can normally get the feel of a place. This restaurant does not disapoint. You are made very welcome as you enter, the food is superb as is the price. Go early as it can fill quickly with locals. There is a English translation menu if needed. If you want traditional German food... More

We chose this restaurant based on reviews, as we were looking for German food at fair prices. The staff were very nice and translated the prix fixe menu for us, which is what we ordered. The spargel pancake (crepe) was fantastic, and my husband had the schnitzel. As with most restaurants in the centre of Aachen, they only take cash.... More

Good German/Greek restaurant. Service people were helpful. The "Spargel" tasted really good. Prices were fair. I hope I will come back soon.
