We had a late lunch in December. The restaurant was nicely decorated for christmas. We sat upstairs. The waiter was very friendly and knowledgable. I am originally from Dortmund and know that their menu contains local dishes that nowadays are hard to find in Dortmund....More

I am not German but in my humble opinion this is not a good place to taste something local and traditional. Poor food and service. The decoration of the place doesn't really make sense, things hanging everywhere that doesn't have anything to do neither with...More

Was recommended by a friend to try here for some lunch. Had the dortmunder sausage with roast potatoes, sauerkraut and mustard and it was delicious! The food is well worth the money.

Visited the bar for lunch before the Dortmund v Bayern Supercup Final. Friendly staff and atmosphere, very good traditional German food, decent beer and rustic decor. Enjoyed it to the point that we went back for some drinks later on.

Just been there with a mate. The waiter was standing around and had a good chat with other customers, probably friends of him , instead of serving us. We had Schnitzel, food was slightly above average. But definitely overpriced. My recommendation , go somewhere else.

Every time I visit Dortmund (normally three times a year) I always make time for Zum alten Markt. Great traditional food, great atmosphere and great beer!
