Here is the place to go if you want to experience the atmosphere of the old bar and pub style of the Ruhrpott. No fancy bells and whistles, straight the beer and the food. Try the "Samtkragen" for a shot experience.

The atmosphere of the place is genuine traditional German. The service is great and the food is amazing. The gulash is perfectly Hungarian. The steak is mindblowing. The servings are big, are small. Do give it a try!

A brilliant night time spot in the heart of Essen. I spent a considerable amount of time here and always found it friendly and full of the spirit of this lovely German town. Brilliant.

it has an offer of german beers and sausages, it is a good place to have a small dinner outside; some problems in ordering if you do not speak german, which is my case, overcome with the good will of all sides.
