It was a surprise to see such a small restaurant when we walked through the door, but this just means everyone gets the full attention you'd expect. The waiting staff were attentive, but not overly so. The meals were excellent, full of flavour and well cooked. Everyone in the party enjoyed their meals. Being such a small place the chef... More

We went here on a Groupon deal and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The hospitality of the staff and the owner and the quality of the food were outstanding. The restaurant is quite small and surprisingly not full on the Sunday evening we were there. Werner chatted with us afterwards and offered Schnapps to complete a delightful evening.

Loved this restaurant, reading the reviews before we went I just had to book and managed to get the last table for the Saturday we went - sitting in the bar and chatted to the waitresses who were excellent. Fab gerwurtztraminer, utterly gorgeous meal. I had the smoked duck followed by the deer steak and finished with the chocolate and... More

I had heard good things about this restaurant and we were not disappointed. We had delicious food, the cheese parcels were lovely and the veal sublime. Possibly the best Schnapps I have ever tasted. Can't wait to go back.

Werner is one of these people. The food last night was very very good, especially the venison starter, the delicious lemon posset and the complex home made chocolate that arrived with my double espresso. Sometimes in food you feel you can taste the love and attention. Such was this. And the man himself beams his friendly attention among the diners... More

Where to start? From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, this was a gastronomic experience that would be hard to beat, anywhere. The menu offered not a choice of what to have but what not to have. The options were both different and imaginative. Our starter, main and dessert courses were well presented and beautifully cooked. The... More

Without doubt the best monkfish dish we have ever had. The smoked duck starter was good too but it was the lovely monkfish in the beurre blanc and pesto sauce that really set this restaurant apart from the pack. Charming host added to the enjoyment of the evening. Top job. Thank you.

We had a Groupon to use, and really weren't expecting such a fantastic evening.From the moment of our arrival, there was a great sense of occasion. The staff were like old friends welcoming us into their home. They seemed truly delighted to be working here, which always bodes well. The menu is amazing, as were the daily specials. Food was...
