Yes, you don't come here for vegetarian dishes. This place is the real thing. Heavy but delicious pork dishes. Good that they still exist! Flushed down with local pils. Reasonable prices compared to competitors in the city. Obviously a place where the locals eat, not...More

Very easy to find, just up the street from the Tram Stop. I was met at the door by a very friendly host, she sat me by the window and reviewed the menu. I knew already that I wanted the Specialty "Pig Knuckles". I also...More

If you are looking for genuine rather than fancy it's the place. Food was really good and service very friendly and cosy. Just perfect. As I expected large portions I asked one meal for my two daughters and they pleasingly did it.

The place is secluded , in a residential area, mostly frequented by tourist. The price and service was acceptable - 12 euro for the pork knuckle dish, with baked potatoes. Portions are huge. Will visit again!

If you want the fatally fantastic combo of beer and meat, that's the must place to be when you're in Hannover l. Pork dishes served with potato skins served with the most heavenly cheese dip! You can find all sorts of German beers to accompany...More

okay, so it doesn't get more German than pork and Germans also eat huge portions. So we had certain expectations when we went to Krauses Schweinehaus. They were disappointed. The service is friendly but they don't listen when you order. They got three orders wrong...More
