Convenient nice dinner place

We have been visiting the place several times, always content with the quality. Food is usually delicious, freshly made and generous portion. Though the service is during peak time tends to be a little slow. For example we have been waiting for the bill for about minimum 20 minutes but been... read more

Was this really a bank? In the basement, next to the washroom there is this huge old safe. Dining area is nice, elegant, classy. Selection is not enormous, and for lunch they have three menus at acceptable prices. The soup was lukewarm, the meat (veal) rather small, flat and chewy. Service was nice and fast. Not sure how they got... More

We dined with a group in this superb restaurant, my colleagues opted for a simple dish but I wanted to respect the Italian kitchen and opted for a nice meal! I started with a Vitati Tonello and than Nodino di Vitello and Filetto di Manzo Griglio ( I had the first) looks and tasted spectacular! Nice location, good service (real... More

Yes, the food is good in this place. The restaurant is beautiful and the location is great. Then why do I recommend to stay clear of this place? Because when we visited this place after our civil wedding ceremony, clad in a white dress/frock, having made reservations in advance -citing the occasion-, we were kept waiting over 30 minutes before...

Its a old bank building and great feeling for a little place.. Service was pleasant and reservation would be best for a nice table as its pretty small. Food Wise- Octopus did not agree with me and suggest another starter or salad. Wine and overall value was good but on the high side of the charts.

Two colleagues and I were in Bad Homburg on business and stumbled upon this restaurant, built in what appeared from the name and the decor to be an old banking hall. The menu was not extensive but there was plenty of choice, both with regard to food and wine. My squid appetiser was superb as was the veal special of... More

Business associate brought me here and I really enjoyed it. The room and the decor were inspiring and artful. The food was really solid too. I had the shrimp scampi and they were the largest prawns this side of flemings steak house in the US. Incredibly meaty and came with the heads attached. Good crusty bread and a decent if... More

This is supposed to be an Italian restaurant, but I was deeply disappointed to have a dinner here. The appetizer (octopus) was barely acceptable, but the meat (beef tagliata) was stiff and the arugula with grana were served in a separate disk, as a salad. The wine was not bad... Globally too expensive.

This very nice place offers, when the weather allows it) the option to eat on the terrace, inside or in between (inside but next to the fully open window). The food offered is based on traditional Italian cuisine with local ingredients where appropriate. It also offers a good choice of well priced excellent wines (some also available by glass).
