Where to eat European food in Dortmund: The Best Restaurants and Bars

August 30, 2019 Jasper Kershner

Discover Restaurants offering the best European food in Dortmund, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. Dortmund has become a center of high-tech industry, but back in the day, it was one of Germany's first brewing centers, and Dortmunder beer is definitely worth tasting in a local bar. Visit the Reinoldkirche or the Marienkirche, or venture south of town to the ruins of Hohensyburg Castle. December is an especially festive time to visit Dortmund—one of Germany's biggest Christmas markets takes over the center of town.

The name suggested that they would have great steaks and we certianly tried the place. Setting is awesome, outside on the square you can relax and people watch all day. The interrior of the restaurant is gracoius, traditional and welcoming. Ordered a steak that the waiter reccomended and was very dissapointed in the quality of the meat and also being tough. Not once did the waiter return to the table to ask if we were happy. So I will not reccomend this place other than sitting and enjoying a beer or two whilst people watching.

There was once a farm here, but then came the industrial age, and the Zollern mineshaft was dug at this spot. This period also came and went, leaving an impressive industrial monument and, next to it, the old stable of the original farm. The place offers

This is a really interesting location (within an old & as museum restored 'Zeche') that offers drinks and snacks, but can as well be rented for bigger events like weddings etc. ... outdoor seating & kids playground are offered as well. The service, food and infrastructure for the event I've attended was just great. Staff was very attentive and helpful and everything (incl. the 'animated' part of the eve) went very smoothly and satisfying for everybody.

Everything is is tasty. I tried beef pasta - sweet melody and 2 salads. Amazing yogurt sauce. The cheese cake was soft and not too sweet, one of the best I tried. The location itself it's lovely. A lot of basil and rosemary pots on wooden tables, tall chairs, caffe area with cosy couches and live cooking. I like to see the food being prepared while I wait. I loved the place and I would recommend it for any occasion.

Dortmund has no real holz offen pizza (forno al legna), but LOst comes close, no wood, only gas. One pizza is big enough for two non-americans.This is the only review you ever need to read for this culinary waste land. there are only 3 restaura ts worth your time and money:losteria for pizza and ITOlafs for burgersand Emils Steakhouse if you want to get laid (assuming you bring your own date). Hello, first of all thank you very much for your feedback. We're happy to hear that you enjoyed our pizza and in general our italian food. :)Grazie milleThe L'Osteria Team

Pfefferkorn NY Steakhouse

Reviewed By 794vincentw

Visited here on an overnight stay in Dortmund. They cater for tourists by having English menus available. Price are a bit on the steep side but then again you get what you pay for. I had steak and couldn’t fault any part of it. Service is prompt and waiters speak pretty good English too. I would definitely try some of the other items on my next visit.

Hovels Hausbrauerei

Reviewed By AnselmColom

The famous Hovel beer is available across most of the city and this it the restaurant of the brewery (I think?) and it’s about as German as it gets with great beers and a lovely menu. Had the Pork last time and that blew me away so this time the Snitzchel. Loads of tables, good service, very reasonably priced, busy in the middle of the afternoon and for good reason! Hello. thank you for your review. we are happy that you liked our Restaurant and you are welcome back anytime your in Dortmund again. All the best from the Hövels team.
