Called in for a quick bite and a latte after walking round the nearby park, a staff member was very helpful in translating the menu for us, decided on a chocolate and nut waffle, was impressed by the whole experience.

alex is a little restaurant near the center of town in kassel. it looks expensive, but it's not. they have a nice ambiance, with a "fireplace", in the middle of the floor. it's a 50" tv, set in the fireplace. there are heaters outside, so you can also dine outside in the winter.

Went here after checking in at the hotel in Kassel at about 20.30. Almost all restaurants in Kassel had already closed, so this one, which was still open and actually very centrally located, was an almost obvious choice. It turned out to be very popular (probably also because it was one of the few still open...) and all in all... More

We are at the Alex several times as it was near our hotel. It was open late and has a large outside seating area which we used once. The downside is the outside is all the smoking area and if you're a non smoker it's not very pleasant. Too bad they don't have a designated non smoking area although I... More

My wife and I took with two friends a cappucino on a cold Summer Saturday afternoon in Kassel's Koeningsstrasse. A nice crowdy place with adequate service.Both a big terrace and a big inside area. For a German place the cappuccino is quite OK. Coffee might be a bit stronger, but unfortunately Kassel is no Italy. Large cups for just EUR... More

We stopped in Kassel for lunch and had a great experience at Alex. Our waiter was helpful, friendly and made an effort to cater to special needs from our three children. Very good burgers and a delicious Ceasar´s salad with extra mushroom and onion. Also good park area next door for children that are tired of waiting for you to... More

We stopped in here for a quick lunch and a drink after shopping and walking around downtown. We wanted to sit outside but were chased inside by the smokers, sorry but just can't tolerate the smoke. Wish they had a non smoking outside dining area (is there such a thing?). After relocating inside, we occupied two tables and ordered schnitzel,... More

I wanted to eat here, I asked for the chicken burger and asked if there were bell peppers. The waiter said yes, I asked if they could leave them off - I am allergic - the waiter said no. I left.
