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

Thank you Nancy T, It does not matter that you spelled FLACZKI wrong so long as you enjoyed it which clearly you did! :) Thank you so much for your kind review as tripe soup tends to be one of those menu items that scares people however shocks them when they end up trying it and loving it.

We regularly get together with another couple, looking for new dining experiences. I have been to this establishment a few times over the Past decade, but had enjoyed it enough to suggest it.

My husband surprised me and took me here for lunch on our anniversary on the 25th. We were greeted warmly by a lovely woman who seated us by the window.

I cannot comment on the food as we left before that decision could be made. We arrived and were greeted in a lacklustre manner by a seemingly tired waitress. She showed us to a bad table and we asked for a slightly better one. We were seated by the window. After about 5 minutes the menus arrived and we chose... More

My husband and I like to visit a couple of times a year . The food is exceptional. The portions are generous and the tomato cocktail is absolutely delicious . The service is impeccable . About the only negative thing I can say is that it can be rather noisy.
