Yes, some may say that it is full with BVB fans, and you know what? They're right! No matter when, there are always a few people walking around in yellow-black colored peaces of clothes. But, it doesn't change a thing. It is a great place with nice atmosphere and nice dishes, typical for this area of Germany. And there is... More

This was one of the busiest restaurant/bars we found in Dortmund. It was hard to get a table, one member of staff was particularly unhelpful, while another was very helpful. The food (steak and burger) was quite good, but a little expensive. The atmosphere was very good, as was the live band.

One of the best bars in the city on a Dortmund match day. The staff are quick and there is a great choice of food and drinks. Plenty of room inside and out make this a popular choice with the BVB supporters and provide a great match day experience for the tourist.

We visited here both nights of our stay due to the excellence of the beer. They have their own brews and also other beers. All were great tasting and I must also mention the staff who were great.

As a BVB fan I had read that this was the place to visit post match. Great experience. Beer awesome. Great service. Fantastic time. Looking forward to returning in December 2016 :)

This place has its own beer which you wont find elsewhere in Dortmund. Food is delicious with a fair price. You can watch Bundesliga and Champions League here. In summer they have a nice terrace on the market.

Not sure whether we were there at the wrong times or not but it seemed like there were plenty of drinkers and not any eaters. Nice place to sit and have a drink though.

Went here after a game at BVB stadium. Bar was crowded and the staff were plainly overwhelmed and quite rude. Got yelled at by a waitress for standing at the bar to order while she wanted to carry a tray out. Wouldnt return as there are other places to enjoy in Dortmund
