Little bit old-fashioned, but pleasant atmosphere. Waiters looked extremely bored during the whole evening. In their eyes the look of "still not time to go home"? Starter and main plate were regarding taste ok, presentation was screaming for more attention. When we wanted to order a desert at 21.45 hr (!!!) we got the answer "sorry but our chef is... More

During my first visit to Germany I was taken here for dinner. I'm afraid to say that their was no ambience in the overly dark and dreary establishment and what I expected to be a enjoyable meal fell very short of the mark with a greasy schnitzel. I would like to think that I would try it again, but there... More

Traditional German food in the heart of Bochum. Comfortable dining room, nicely decorated with nautical themes. Attentive service. Great value for money.

My wife and I visited from the U.S. and met German family members we only knew from social media. We ate outside and our waiter was right on the ball and helped make this experience wonderful. The food was delicious and the beer outstanding. The price was very reasonable. There were 11 of us and with the food, beer and... More

Our family really enjoyed our experience here. The food was delicious and the staff very friendly and helpful to non-German speakers. They did have an English menu available, and tried very hard to answer our questions. We even returned for a second dinner during our trip.

They did not have an English menu, but they did accept visa. Food was OK -- it is always difficult to know when you are getting when the menu is incomplete or in a foreign language. The salad was drowned in salad dressing. They charged an extra Euro when I asked for a small variation on a listed dessert. Overall... More

The outside of the restaurant looks rather like a traditional beer house whilst the inside has oak beams with nice furnishings and was surprisingly well lit. Service very good, one waitress serving the whole section of our room but she was very efficient and speedy. The restaurant is split up into sections with several waitresses serving in their own section,... More

Mutter Wittig is a typical German restaurant. The food is nice, the portions are also good. The dining room looks very nice, only the chandelier makes the room too light. That's the only downside of this restaurant.

Went with 6 people and we looked forward to it. Meal was bad and one member found it tasted like rewarmed up food. The sausage was very tough and not as good as many other German restaurants. The green cabbage for which the region and dish was famous again bad and not fresh tasting. One guest had fish and the... More
