Der Keller is probably the oldest German Restaurant in town - the original version opened back in 1977 at the then Chicago Beach Hotel. The present version was set up in 1997 when the Jumeirah Beach Hotel opened. I don't recall the last time I was here but the four of us had dinner last night. A handful of diners... More

As always great food and lovely staff. Schnitzel were perfect as were the sausages and saukrat. You don't have to book. Kids are welcome and prices not unreasonable considering it is situated in a 5 star hotel. Would highly recommend

Sad pastiche of what a German restaurant should be...more like Disneyland than Dubai. I should have taken one look at the fake decor and turned around as things didn't get any better. This was my least favourite dining experience in the Jumeriah Beach Hotel. They crank out and endlessly bland and boring selection of dumbed down German favourites. All edible... More

Having been to Der Keller before, we thought that we would give the venue a second try. A bad decision. Menus were delivered to the table, but we had to ask the waitress for them. The first drinks order took 30 minutes to arrive after ordering. The starters came and were sound in quality. However, before we had finished the... More

Had a lovely meal in this quaint Bavarian restaurant. There was a promotion for a sharing platter which had a variety of sausages, Pork bell, Pork knuckle, pork chop and some sides. I shared this with my husband and it beat both of use. Everything was well cooked and very tasty. Great value. Some excellent beers available too.
