Reviewed November 12, 2016

Strongly recommend to visit, who appreciates very special atmosphere. As for the decorations and musics, it combines jazz times, elements of classics, a few street musics and high quality old pop musics. Regarding for food and drinks, everything was taste and of good quality.

Enjoyable family night out on a sultry summer evening. Really enjoyed the traditional food (large portions! do ask for half-size portions for the kids - in fact, our kids barely managed those!), the quaint music-theme decor and the friendly service. We had the Sülze (jellied meat dish) and Brathering (which I had expected to be hot, but it's served cold/pickled. The kids had a noodle dish and the tomato soup - both were really good. Recommended!

in a typical students street with lots of choice this stood out as easy going. nor full but busy enough with locals no smoking

lots of fresh beer (bier) and a quickly thrown together dripping sandwich at 10 was great.

Die Kneipe isn't fancy by any means ("music" seems to be the unofficial theme here, including guitar-shaped tables and a ceiling covered with old sheet music), but it is comfortable and cozy. There is a huge selection of drinks, alcoholic and non, and there are frequently offers during the week (including "Nudelnacht," or "noodle night," when a number of pasta dishes are on special for under €3, or free peanuts). Food is also very affordable - I think the most expensive stuff on the menu is €7 or €8, if I remember correctly.

The down side? Sometimes the restaurant is a bit too cozy, and it can be hard to get into and out of the tables and booths when the restaurant is packed. Also, on nights like Nudelnacht, don't expect everyone's food to come out at the same time. It seems like the people in the kitchen cook a huge batch of spaghetti bolognese and then send that out to customers who ordered that, then a batch of spaghetti with olive oil and garlic and send that out, etc.

I came here with a friend and we both ordered baked pasta dishes (~€5.50) which were hot, filling and tasty. They also serve good beer (in glasses up to 3 Litres in size!) as well as a range of other drinks, starters, soups and bar snacks. They only had three desserts available while we were there, and all involved apple sauce - I guess it's some kind of local speciality. They sounded good, if maybe a bit odd, but we were too full to try them.

The bar isn't very big, but it is cheap and friendly - I'd definitely go back.
