This has to be one of my favorite German restuarants . Great spot for Sunday lunch , The Eisbein is large and well cooked - i had the peri peri eisbein which may have been better with the sauce on the side - however when combined with a weiss beer it was a great meal - well recommended !

Reception was not very welcoming. The setting makes for seating in a variety of 'rooms' or locations. For a newcomer, guidance as to where we would like to be seated would have helped. Service was acceptable, but on two occasions we had to attract the attention of our waitress who was on her cellphone :-( The food was generally good... More

Almost a typical German bar and restaurant not a smart place popular for the beer and generous typical German food. Not the romantic spot but could good for a party.

We were really happy to find a German restaurant in Johannesburg, so we booked it well in advance as we had everything planned for each night we stayed. we booked it 2 weeks in advance to Sunday evening at 1930. Around 1740 we got a call from the restaurant, that on Sunday the kitchen is closed at 1930, so if... More

Superb venue, has a very relaxed and homely feel. Staff friendly and efficient. Have eaten here a few times and the food never disappoints. The cherry on top is the very reasonable prices. Definitely a repeat customer!

Great atmosphere, delicious food, wide selection of beers both local and imported. It's a large restaurant with a separate bar area, the service is great, and the prices are reasonable. Good for a boys night, or a chilled meal with friends.

A pleasant setting tucked out of the way in Ferndale, quiet, with both inside and covered outdoor tables. My friend and I visited on a weekday lunchtime and the place was almost empty. We sat at an outside table and had to wait for a server to attend but the service was otherwise good. Bear in mind that the portions... More
