Weary from touring the Christmas market, & needing a comfortable friendly restaurant, this proved to be just what we needed. Friendly service & good food & beer, The bill for 2 good main courses (knuckle of pork, & pork Wiener Schnitzel) + a couple of beers was 42 euros, so really good value for the quality & quantity!

Right next to one of the Christmas markets so great for watching the world go by. Good food reasonably priced and drinks aren't expensive either. The waitress was a bit surly and a visit to the local charm school wouldn't go amiss for her. Other than that well worth stopping off at. Also the menu, while listinmg the obvious, gives... More

Stopped in here during a river cruise. Had dinner and some beers. I had the Pig Knuckle with Sauerkraut and Mashed Potatoes and my friends shared the 1# Bratwurst and Fried Potatoes. Both were outstanding and the beer was the best we had in the 3 pubs we tried.

We had tried to reserve in advance but the restaurant was fully booked (Saturday night). We were encouraged to come back and wait for a table which we did and were promptly seated. Enjoyable experience, very good food and service in a traditional German Brauhaus setting. The place is always busy but the turnover is quick so don't be turned... More

Lovely place. Good beer. Gorgeous hearty food. But Slow service Completely overwhelmed waitress with too much to do, too many staff standing around doing nothing. I felt sorry for the poor girl.

Been here 3 times and the food has always been good. Last time I ordered the goulash and it was very tasty. The Kolsh is good too. Service was excellent.

Schnitzel and fries tasted like from frozen pork pattie and oven chips. Half chicken was dry and plain. Beer was cheaper than other places, place was clean, staff were nice. I would go for a drink again but never for food.
