My partner had the fried fish, rice and vegetables all delectable. I had one of their Veal dishes in a generous mushroom sauce with their speciality of a kind... More

Werners is a must, it look so unassuming from the outside but when you enter it is a very up market, yet casual resturant, great wholesome German Food and most certainly value for money.

Catching up with a group of friends. We could book a seperate room so it was nice and private. Food was done well and service was ok.When the waiter got busy he forgot to bring some drinks and we had to order it again. As it was a sunday afternoon there was live music and the guests loved it.

We've consistently had good meals in this restaurant and attended a birthday function of about 50 people . it has a lively atmosphere .There is a visible difference when a restaurant is an independent owner run which I personally prefer and not a franchise .

I tried to book a table here on Sunday for a birthday lunch. I was received with so much aggression!! The male manager and what I assume is a receptionist/booking lady were utterly rude in front of my 7 year old!! Pathetic, pathetic customer service!! I was told by the manager "I've been running around the whole morning, I cannot... More

Brilliant little inn which serves great German food and relatively good service. Gets interesting closer to year end season with a guaranteed laugh at some funny characters that unwind. The Eisbein is a must try, best in JHB.
