Heini am Stau

Reviewed By SteveGoldgap

There is probably no doubt about the nice location and the good beer selection. What I wanted to point out is the concept. They could not really decided between a "men´s location" with beef and beer and a posh place so they did both. The visitors therefore are very very normal people willing to spend some more money on mediocre food. We tried a bunch of things but all of them did not really have a special taste. The preparation was technically good but nothing that really would ask for a "wow" or surprise. Just filling, sufficient portions of something to eat. I did not really enjoy the decoration and style nor the people hanging out nor the food. Unless they change or just to sit on the terrace in summer for a beer I see no need to return.

FAZIT: Sicherlich muss man Restaurant und Hochzeitsfeier trennen und dennoch kann man hier wirklich gut essenLage/Ambiente:Außerhalb der Innenstadt, an der Sandkruger Straße gelegen (zwischen Autobahnabfahrt Sandkrug (A29) und Ortsteil Bümmerstede (südlich der Oldenburger Innenstadt). Parkplätze sind ausreichend vorhanden. Hat für mich den Stil der 70er/80er Jahre und könnte auch mal "in einen Jungbrunnen fallen".Wir waren hier, um eine Hochzeit zu feiern und trafen bereits zur Nachmittagszeit zu Kaffee und Kuchen ein. Der Nebenraum, in dem wir platziert wurden, war nicht vorgeheizt und eindeutig zu kalt. Und er war trotz Fenster und Licht sehr dunkel.Abendessen:Die Hochzeitssuppe war ordentlich und wurde serviert - die Hauptgänge gab es als Buffet und waren ausgesprochen lecker. Nachts gab es dann noch 2 Suppen zur Auswahl - auch die waren sehr gut.Service:In Zeugnissen schreibt man in dem Fall "er war sehr bemüht" - 2 Servicekräfte mehr wären gut gewesen, vor allem als es um das Servieren der Suppe ging. Auch das Abräumen dauerte seine Zeit.Preis-Leistung:Bringt man Preis und die Standardkarte des "normalen Restaurantbereichs" mit der Qualität des Hochzeitsessens in Einklang, passt beides zusammen und ist o.k.

Klinkerburg Kaffeehaus Restaurant

Reviewed By thearndt

Wanted to try the Klinkerburg because of the positive reviews, and we were not disappointed. Just had a lunch there, but you see from the start that this place has a distinct atmosphere, that´s because the restaurant is housed in a former railway station hall; the thick walls and their decoration have a specific kind of charm, but some might perceive it as a bit cold - so it´s not the cosiest type of place. But still nicely made. Friendly service, good food, and the prices for lunch are not high at all. Will surely go back there. Conveniently located adjacent to the rail station, or a five minute walk from the old town.

OLs Brauhaus

Reviewed By Klara W

I really like to go to OLs. It is a micro-brewery brewing a great variety of different beers. Every time they have standard German beer types but then there are always great other beers to. I can highly recommend the Indian Pale Ale. So ask the servant which beers they currently have as the menu is not always up to date. Food is ok, but for sure not the strongest point. I would recommend you to have eaten already and just go for beer. The place is rather spacious and I have had never problems to find a free table no matter how many we were.

Sasso

Reviewed By thearndt

Went to the Sasso last week with my family. At the beginning everything was fine; the service was friendly and swift. Soon after, though, the place suddenly got much more crowded (not surprisingly on the long weekend around the first of May) and it seems the staff couldn't really handle that. The restaurant allowed groups of guests in with people who each had already drunk a few beers already, apparently; they made quite a bit of noise and when someone from our group told the waiter about this and asked whether he could tell them to reduce their noise level, the waiter said that he cannot do this, as it's an openly accessible restaurant. We thought this was a rather weird behaviour and he was probably rather looking after the other groups' larger bills. Waiting staff didn't show up anymore and we had to ask twice to get the bill, after a long wait. The second negative point is that the restaurant is no longer that cosy after renovation & enlargement; it has rather a metropolitan / cool atmosphere which may be OK for a lunch or a business dinner, but I wouldn't go there for a private dinner. There wasn't much to criticize about the food, although it didn't have any highlights, either. Anyway, there are better restaurants in Oldenburg.

Went to the Phoenix restaurant for the second time today, for a family birthday. As great as last time - friendly and swift staff, a nice menu and great & tasty food (also good vegetarian choice), nice atmosphere as well. Prices are a bit on the high side for Oldenburg, but it's worth it (surely not overpriced)! Would really recommend this restaurant; 10 mins walk from the center of the city.

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.

Ratskeller Oldenburg

Reviewed By Richie M

Made a reservation in June and we eagerly awaited our visit for five months. We were not disappointed. The food was fantastic, eaten & served in a relaxed, friendly atmosphere. We informed the restaurant that we spoke no German in advance and English menus greeted us...along with two waitresses...(Daniela & Natalie)...who spoke English and were very patient with me...(I have a Liverpudlian accent which must have made understanding me quite difficult)...the food was plentiful, well cooked & exceptionally tasty...80 Euros for 2 x three course meals and eight drinks was...(I thought)...excellent value...well done to everybody there...

Kleine Burg

Reviewed By thearndt

Had lunch at the Kleine Burg with three other people, it was excellent. We had booked a child seat, too, and the staff had prepared not only that, but also small cutlery and places for the little one, plus paint pens. Staff was very friendly and professional. All dishes were prepared to perfection, very tasty indeed. Prices are OK for lunch, kind of high for dinner (for Oldenburg), though - but I'd still like to try at some point.
