Friendly staff and wonderful food. I enjoyed the Sauerbraten, which is a wonderfully tasty slow cooked meat. It was outstanding.

After spending a nice day in old town Aachen we decide to try this restaurant which looked traditional. BIG MISTAKE. This was a disaster from the start. On entering we were greeted by a very rude waiter. We put it down to us and hoped he would not be serving us. After he seated us he turned on the other... More

We chose this restaurant as we wanted to sample some traditional German food and hospitality. The place looked inviting from the outside and even the interior was nicely decorated. These are the only good points. We were visiting with a large group so we rang ahead and asked could they cater for us ? We were told yes so we... More

This restaurant was built hundreds of years ago and presents a menu with local dishes like potato cakes, blood sausage, special meat dishes. Pleasant service. Good beer. When it is warm, then sit outside and enjoy the view of the fascinating Rathaus.

I visited the restaurant on a weekend evening with family. We had booked ahead for a big family party. We were seated next to their bar area, with extremely loud, disgusting, cheap pop music blaring out, to the point where we could hardly understand each other. Later on in the evening the music was turned up to night club levels.... More

This was an ok place with good beer, a little cramped at popular times and in need of a little tender loving care. Friendly staff and well placed to see the sights and Christmas Markets.
