I've been there for a dinner with a colleague of mine. In a nice atmosphere, I've ordered a fillet with country potatoes: both of the things were very good (especially the meat was great). Even the ice-cream was good (the strawberry flavour had pieces of strawberry inside). The waitress was kind and smiling (I always apreciate kindness and "smiling attitude").... More

Saff not friendly, very poor quality of food inundated with sauces that caused us stomach pain all night. Only worth it for the buffett of fresh vegetables. Absolutely to be avoided for the rest.

John Benton restaurant in Augsburg is close to the city centre and offers a good selection of 'steak house' type meals. Good value and the staff are friendly. Ideal place if you want something fairly simple and inexpensive. Soup, half rack of ribs and chips, plus 1.5 beers was 17 Euros

This restaurant was a positive surprise. Very central in the pedestrian area with excellent steaks and beers. We went there with our 2 Kids 4 and 8 years old, and as they were not able to deliver french fries that evening (we got riz), our kids were offered the ice cream for free. We very much appreciated and had a... More

Our German isn't very good, but a waitress who was quite sure she understood us clearly made for some interesting plates. The bill listed plates that never arrived. By far the least pleasant experience we have had on this trip. Food was fine though.

On the bad side, the tables are crammed in making it feel overcrowded and stuffy. However the food is reasonable if not exceptional, the portions are huge, and the waitresses are pretty. I think I enjoyed our visit more than my wife did!

Perfect place for a steak in Augsburg. If you are looking for a steakhouse this would be it, cooked to request and worth the cost!

I did the salad bar option for my meal and I was underwhelmed. The lettuce was fine, but the variety of toppings was seriously lacking. There was corn, cucumbers in a vinegar sauce, beets, and I think that was it. Service was good, though.
