Lovely German atmosphere, awesome huge schnitzels. We truly enjoyed our meal. I don't remember seeing any vegetables, but oh well. Great fries as well. Awesome sauce.

Difficult to find a restaurant on a Saturday evening in December when the Aachener Weihnachts market is in full flow. But we had found this restaurant which had OK reviews and booked online. Very busy and frankly understaffed to serve the number of people in the restaurant. Took a while to get served; they made a mistake on our drinks... More

My sister and our husbands made a journey to Aachen for the Christmas markets. We stumbled upon this restaurant/bar during our stay as it was near our hotel. The first evening (Tuesday) we just had drinks as we had eaten earlier. It was busy with groups of people eating and drinking round large tables and cosy nooks. The atmosphere was... More

I went to this place on a Saturday evening and it was pretty quiet (maybe it gets busy later). The staff were nice enough but I don't understand why people are raving about it. The schnitzel I ordered with paprika sauce was quite good but nothing special and the sauce was most likely from a packet. I think perhaps later... More

We chanced upon this place because we were staying in the Ibis almost next door (also recommended). Everything about this restaurant is top class. Food, atmosphere, service, friendliness of staff and price. We were lucky to get in on a Saturday night without a reservation as the place was packed all night. I cannot recommend this restaurant too highly. Get... More

This restaurant specialises in Schnitzel, all kinds. They are served large, filling the plate, and small that almost fill the plate. There are other local dishes all of which served in generous portions, and with large side servings. There is also a great selection of German beers.

Staying in Aachen at the Ibis Hauptbahnhof for three nights during the Christmas Market, we had some trouble making reservations for dinner at our usual haunts in town. Remembering Im Alten Zollhaus from a previous visit, we tried to get a table for three without a booking. We were greeted in a warm and friendly manner and space was found... More

This is a very busy restaurant and bar. The food is fabulous and they have a good range of draught beers. The atmosphere was superb as was the service. We will certainly go back there if we ever go back to Aachen.

We've dined at this restaurant several times on our rail journeys to and from further afield in Europe. It is very handy to the Ibis Marchiertot hotel, which is near the railway station and it offers not just traditional German fare but also dishes for those who prefer Ital;ian style. It's only a few metres from the hotel but it... More
