El Mundo

Reviewed By Sts s

Joint lunch with relatives. Fast and polite service. Very large dishes (not my choice), quality average. Design is kitchiy, like large mirrors. But this is my private taste. Unfortunately, the room is very large and noisy, you are listening to the neighbour if you like or does not.

The Irish Pub Fiddler's Green

Reviewed By 197stevee - Odenton, Maryland

I decided to visit Fiddler's Green for dinner. The service was very good and friendly. The Guinness was a perfect end to the day. I ordered the Shepherds Pie which was fantastic. It had great flavor and the mashed potatoes/cheese topping were amazing. This is probably the best Shepherd's Pie I've had to date. This is definitely a great find and I hope to be back soon. Safe travels!

Paulaners an der Schlachte

Selbst wer schon lange im Bayern lebt und ohne Stolpern den "Oachkatzlschwoaf" (Eichhörnchenschwanz) über die Lippen bringt, gehört noch längst nicht dazu. Bayrisch ist eine Sache des Gemüts … und des Gaumens. Seit 1998 macht das Paulaner’s Wirtshaus an der Schlachte die Bremer mit der bayrischen Biergartenkultur vertraut. Frei nach dem Motto „Leben und leben lassen“ erleben Sie bei uns eine besonders frische Gemütlichkeit, die echt bayrischen PAULANER-Biere, ausgesuchte Schnäpse, die vielseitige Speisekarte mit Spezialitäten aus der nord- und süddeutschen Küche, Gerichte für den kleinen und großen Hunger… und vieles mehr. Ihre individuellen Wünsche berücksichtigen wir dabei gern. Unsere täglich wechselnden Tagesgerichte und die beliebten Paulaner`s Saisonangebote lassen kaum einen Wunsch offen. Direkt an der Weser gelegen, ist das Paulaner`s an der Schlachte ein Bier- und Speiselokal nach Münchener Lebensart mit einem der schönsten Biergärten Bremens.

We were a group of 15 but they knew about our reservation and gave us excellent service. The whole group really liked their meals - quite an achievement! Bergsteiner Snitzel was really good and we also liked the Kaiser Pancakes. The beer here is also...MoreWe are very happy to hear you were very satisfied with your evening in our restaurant. Hope to see you the next time you visit Bremen :)

We're astonished to see bad reviews of the restaurant Zum Drögen Hasen, and we thought that the people judged the former owner. We have experienced the location in the realm of a wedding and a business meeting. The location is very good, the staff friendly, and the food is also acceptable.

Kleiner Olymp

Reviewed By EuroNomad91 - Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom

Kleiner Olymp is an absolute gem in a small city with plenty of choice for eating out. Despite being right in the middle of the expectedly touristy Schnoor district, Kleiner Olymp felt like the sort of place locals go for dinner to escape the usual tourist traps. The atmosphere was fantastic - warm, welcoming and quintessentially German in many ways, and that's before you've tried the food.
The menu is extensive and we were spoiled for choice, but both ended up going for the Zwiebelsuppe (onion soup, French style, with a cheese gratin on top) which was touted as one of the restaurant's most popular dishes and did not disappoint.
For mains, I went for the Kaptain's Schmaus which is difficult to define - another reviewer called it a German version of paella, which isn't a bad way of describing it. Think chunks of fresh white fish, shrimp and shellfish mixed in with fried potato, onion and small lardons. Hearty, wholesome and delicious.
We also enjoyed the restaurant's signature beer, only available at Kleiner Olymp - a dark, fruity and exceptionally smooth number. Worth stopping by for one of those at the very least!
Highly recommended. You will not be disappointed.

Bestial

Reviewed By kbrumann - Cambridge, United Kingdom

The team at Bestial is friendly and attentive.It is well located right by the former city walls of Oldenburg, opposite the "Staatstheater" and offers both inside and outside Seating. Their chef experiments with unusual flavour and combinations. I would say that their forte are home made pastas. My "coconut kiss" alcohol free cocktail was a touch too sweet for me, but that was to be expected.
My attempt at constructive criticism on my meal (home made pasta with fried liver and pear) was accepted and we received grappa on the house from their friendly staff.
Despite some shortcomings I enjoyed the visit and would recommend this place.

Schuettinger Gasthausbrauerei

Reviewed By Thomas M - Berlin, Germany

If you are in a good company for beer and want an interesting place for drink it -come here. If you are hungry and want tasty northgerman food - let it. The atmosphere is rreally amazing, the staff is fast and friendly, some home brewed beer is ready for drinking, the temperature of the beer is well. So far so good. But the food is really not well, coaled grill food, potatoes without salt, also the dishes are looking not tasty.
