Terrific European style meals, quiet music in the back ground, great service and interesting views of Whyte avenue. Not to forget over 100 beers and delicious wine!

This is the third time we have visited this restaurant when visiting family in Edmonton and we have never been disappointed.

Enjoyed a Saturday afternoon late lunch with family here in December. A great corner booth with a view to Whyte Avenue but also cozy enough for a nice conversation. Great service staff, very knowledgable and efficient but attentive, in a good way. The Red Barszcz was delicious with beets and cream. I ordered the Euro bowl and it was a... More

I have been to this place a couple of times. I loved their food and service! They have a very good collection of beers. The pickle soup is just fantastic! If you can handle raw beef, you should not miss their beef tartare. The price is a little high, but it is worth it!

We've been coming to this great restaurant for years. Our favourite is still their unbeatable well tenderized schnitzel with potato salad and pickle soup. It's busy in the evening,especially during weekend so booking a table may be a wise idea.

I'm not sure if I spelled flatchke correctly. It's the soup they make with honey dew tripe. If you like honey dew tripe this is the place to come and eat it. No one else in the city can get the tripe this tender. Ever since the Gasthaus zur Muehle closed down we've been looking for a good German /... More
