Restaurant is located in the center of the city. Small,cozy and very casual restaurant where locals go and dine. Must try the pork knuckle, house specialty.

I had a dinner at this small place in Duesseldorf old town. While suggesting you to book in advance to avoid long time queing I've to say the food was good and once seated you don't have too long to wait to get your meal. Traditional German food is served in a cheap and informal environment. Pretty famous among the... More

We had a late meal here on our last night in Germany in what was a really enjoyable long weekend. Only looks like a cafe from the outside, looks can be deceiving it goes back a fair way inside. Three of us all went the whole hog with pig knuckles and one with pork loin fillets. All were superb tender... More

Food tastes ok, good portions, but smelly and not very clean. The place is crowded and lost in time. They need to get it cleaner inside in future.

This isn't a glamorous restaurant so don't expect that! Small place with only 6 or 8 tables, food cooked at the front counter but it is clean, good food and service, prices are cheap and all round we had a great lunch

Just go here to eat the Schweinehaxe (pork knuckle) roasted on the spit. Crackling to die. This is a very small restaurant though so probably best to reserve a table in high season. The front of this eatery is a take away so you need not be disappointed if it is too busy, plenty of standing tables outside and in... More

We decide to eat at Schweine Janes because of the positive reviews on Tripadvisor but were very disappointed. The restaurant is very small with only a few tables (as far as we could tell) and set out to provide a quick meal for people on the move. My wiener schnitzel was average but okay. My wife's jaeger schnitzel was soaking... More
