This was once Beethoven's watering hole! Though it was pretty much completely destroyed by Allied bombing in WWII, it was rebuilt to resemble its appearance. The restaurant itself dates back to the 14th century and is right off the town square. Do NOT miss an opportunity to eat here! The staff is extremely friendly, and the beer list is to... More

We came in for drinks, but after looking at the menu, decided to stay for dinner. Dinner was good value, 2 glasses of Kolsch, a glass of Ahr-valley red wine, 2 half-litre glasses of Hefe-weizen and two mains for less than 50€. The menu is a typical bier haus menu, with lots of pork dishes such as the Schweinshaxe (roasted... More

Great food and good local beers. The restaurant is very old and has some very interesting history of years gone by, if you want to know more it's all on the menu front cover. Now the food, traditional food and very good prices, I had the heaven and earth dish, that was a mix of liver sausage Black/blood pudding and... More

There.'a no frills with Em Hottche. Situated right next door to the town hall it serves your standard German brew house fayre and mighty tasty it is to. We wandered in at 9.30 on a Tuesday night and chose our own table. We drank Kolsch and tried to translate the menu. There seemed to be a wide array of options... More

Sited right in the heart of downtown Bonn, the restaurant offers a great selection of German food and beer. Filled with locals, the food portion is substantial and tasty

They have a really lowsy waiter, who does not understand what he is doing. First he took the order first from two tables which had been occupied after ours. Then, some 15m after we ordered, he came to ask again for our order and to finish off he was carrying my plate with his thumb stuck right in the middle... More

We went there for dinner yesterday, Halloween! The location is perfect, the place is really cozy and the waiter who served us was very friendly always with smile. Foods there are nice, typical German style, and they have English menu, but I think the English version only covers part of the German one, I mean, less choices. And the price... More
