Arrived at 5 when they opened hoping to grab a bite to eat before seeing Lionel Richie in the hockey stadium. We hadn't booked and it was a Saturday evening so we were grateful to the owner for accommodating 8 of us at short notice. Great beer, great food (quite salty) and nice outdoor eating area.

At Stephanus they serve traditional, local food with an aromatic gravy flavored with there locally brewed beers. In case you will have a sunny and warm day the beer garden is open with some BBQ food on the menu. Food and beer is perfect! Service slows down a little bit if the place is packed. Take it as German Gemütlichkeit

My wife and I were staying in Monchengladbach and we were looking for someplace that might more represent the area in terms of food and beer. This place was about 30 minutes from our hotel and it was well worth the drive. We speak no German but the owner and his daughter spoke wonderful English and took the time to... More

My uncle took my sister and I to one of his favorite local spots to have a traditional German meal at the end of our weekend in Mönchengladbach. The food was delicious, the beer was fantastic (I recommend the Dunkel), and the staff was very friendly and spoke far better English than I speak German. I even had a quick... More

With a guest from Tehran, Iran, we looked for a real typical German restaurant. We found it here. From the interiour / furnishing over the service up to the (big) portions. All of us were 100% satisfied. And the prices are reasonably low.

Searched online for a traditional German place to eat while in Germany. Decided on this one. Did not look particularly attractive from the outside or in a nice area but in we went. Greeted by a traditional old fashioned interior and a warm welcoming host. In English too! Had some difficulty choosing what to have but after some conversation with... More

I visited the brewery / restaurant with 65 people. We arranged everythin upfront over email. Each person could select one mail out of three options (schnitzel, knuckle meat (haxen fleish) and chicken (hahn). Each person was very positive about the dinner. Beside the meals the beers were excellent. Especially the white (weizen) and dark (dunkel). We ended our dinner with... More
