Best pork knuckles in town. My personal opinion, better than most 5 star-rated restaurants. Prices are very very reasonable, portions are big. I'm a small size person, and yet i managed to finished everything. It was so good, I refused to leave anything behind. The shop is quite small, I missed it the 1st time. Once I had it in... More

Sorry but I was disappointed after reading all the reviews, but it's down to personal opinion it was ok but not brilliant and I have eaten better elsewhere previously and after there are better Balkan eateries not far from this restaurant.

If you visit Dusseldorf for any reason, do not skip this nice place. It is really difficult to find it if you walk: you will never think that they can cook the best pork meat in town. The food is very simple and so much good. The price is accesible for everyone.

We had a quick diner after we tasted all the small bites at the Christmasmarket. And it was perfect! Very quick service and good schnitzel!

Saturday lunch was as it down affair untie rear of this restaurant which also sells takeaway snacks at the front. The food all four of us had was exceptional for the price. It is an informal venue but well worth a visit when in the old town of Dusseldorf.

We ordered the "Schweinhaxe mit saurkraut und kartoffelenpurree" and it was delicious! Lucky to get a place where we could sit and see the chefs working. Next time we will go again for sure!

First time we came we ate inside and the food was above average and wasn't planning on coming back. Then I read the reviews here and opted after having a few drinks next door to grab a sandwich because there was a long line. Wowsers!!! Ate there two more times

In town for the Medica exhibition and we decided to eat at Schweine Janes again after such a good meal the previous year. You can't seem to reserve here, and the length of the queue means they're going to fill the tables. It was around 45 minutes to queue outside before a table for 5 came up inside, there is... More

We arrived Friday night after a delayed flight. Arriving in the city at 0AM we directly went to this location. I had read about it before. We tasted - OF COURSE - the "Schweinebrötchen". Similar like grilled chicken on skewers they grilled pork (shoulder I think). They cut some pieces and stuffed them between the two halves of a bread... More
