Very much a place for locals, out of the center but right next to the 101 bus makes thins a good place to drink locally brewed beer (pale or dark hence the name) and good food is also on offer. Im there a few times a year, each time I go I wonder why Im not there more often.

Place to go for some "Berlinish" cuisine. Generous portions of "home style" dishes, and locally brewed beer. (Hell oder Dunkel means light or dark - the 2 varieties of the brew). Variety of schnitzels, meatballs and steaks, all very reasonably priced.
