Great food, great service, I'd definitely recommend for business and casual dining. Lots of wine choice and accompanying finger food - had a cheese plate and filled avocado

This restaurant like Limao is close to the Hotel I stayed at recently for a two week business trip. I visited 4 times in this period and was never disappointed. They welcome you warmly, and seem genuinely happy if you enjoy the food. The fare is sort of classic local home cooking. I remember a very tasty tartar, the cod liver dish as a starter is divine, and they do a salad with veal strips which i loved. My colleague had a good steak on one evening, and I also remember a veal ragu thing with cheese filled gnocchi. The drinks were all as they should be (really good house merlot). The prices are not cheap, but I would say fare.

When we stayed in Bonn recently, we didn't realise that our hotel (the excellent Villa Godesberg) was so far out of town.......so we searched on Google for a nearby restaurant and Maternus popped up. We really liked it: the courtyard out the back is pretty and romantic. The food was excellent - traditional dishes very well and freshly prepared. The service was very good too. We both had Schnitzel, one with potato salad and one with fried potatoes. Very tasty indeed! A nice touch was that there is a herb garden growing in the courtyard and the chefs came out to pick the herbs freshly.

I come back to this restaurant every time I am in Bonn. For good reason. Their menu is simple, to the point, and brilliant. And every dish is prepared with care and very high standards. This time I ate here three times. Since it is white asparagus season, I took advantage and ate asparagus every time- in different combinations. With schnitzel, with lamb chops, with steak. Always equally excellent. The service is incredibly nice and concerned that you have a good experience. This restaurant has a high profile with politicians both from Germany and abroad. Their little room on the side has seen some action. Ask for a quick tour of the room. This is indeed a jewel in Bad Godesberg

When Bonn was the capital of West Germany, a favourite place for the government. Photos of Brezhnev and George HW Bush on the wall. Slow service, old fashioned style.
