We are on our German Vacation from California. Beautiful rustic setting not far from Bremen where my wife comes from originally. Her best friend suggested a day trip by train to discover the "REAL" countryside of Germany instead of just staying in the City. All three of us enjoyed the outing, Both my wife and her girl friend savoured the... More

Just 9 miles from Oldenburg you will find this beautiful area called Bad Zwischenahn, with this wonderfull restaurante. In Spieker you like to enjoy the Ammerländer hospitality and feel at home. As annex of Ammerländer farmhouse, and therefore part of the existing since 1910 Museum of Spieker corresponds with its rustic decor of the original style half-timbered style. Powerful, dark...

Traditional restaurant next to the museum, a 19th century farmhouse. Professional waiters in local uniform. Famous for smoked eel. Hearty dishes e.g. "Spieker Special": smoked eel, fried potatoes and scrambled eggs. Generous portions, rustic style. Guests are a mixture of the local crowd and tourists. Prices are moderate and food is of good quality. Reservations highly recommended.

Visited after a personal recomendation by a native. Nice location in the outside amongst old farm buildings close to the Zwischenahn lake. Had eel. Delicious, though a little bit on the small side. Eels can be bigger though. Quality very good, servants should show up more often and be more attentive.

Great bier, food, and local atmosphere. We were treated to a selection of 'proosting' songs from the men at the table next to us. Great bread, cheese, and wurst! We had a perfect Summer evening.

Good food -- especially local fishspecialities -- makes this place worth to visit. They have places outside and inside, and at nice day having beer outside is tremendous idea.

I visit this place always, when I am in Bad Zwishenahn. It's was located in center. I take always Smoked eel with dark bread local "Schnaps" which will be served in a tin spoon. And you will wash your hands in the same Schnapps. Defenitely a place to go , fresh and traditional food and very friendly Staff.

here you will like everything and find no dislikes, I am not kidding. The waiting staff at it's best friendly, fast and always smiling. I had knocked over my stein of beer by accident, was almost empty anyhow, sure was served with another glass full of beer. You must try the smooked eels with Bratkartoffel, or if you like Schwarz...

As recommended, we went here at night, unfortunately we didn't get to see the scenic view of the lake and the windmill. It is a traditional barn and well preserved. The coziness of both the staff and the fireplace made me think of home. They even wore the traditional costume from the North and they have a good sense of... More
