Great for beer and dinner

Decided to go here to rest after a whole day of christmasshopping. Our intention was to get 1 beer and then go back to our hotel, but... we got out 5 hours later. The atmosphere is great, the service is good and the Wiener Schnitzel is excellent.

12 of us descended on this restaurant and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The staff were friendly and accommodating. The food was cooked to perfection and was a reasonable price.

Stopped in for lunch and was pleased by the nice dining options. From German staples to house specials..the selection was varied and looked tasty. Our group shared some traditional items...bratwurst with sauerkraut and potatoes and crispy pork knuckle. The knuckle was spectacular!! Crispy skin surrounded moist chunks of pork and fell off the bone...literally. The Kolsch beer was free flowing... More

Went here during a weekend break. We were looking for good quality traditional german brauhaus food and this place is great. Very busy but we were able to get a table without booking. Service was prompt and efficient. English spoken but not overly touristy. Free flowing beer is brought round the tables in endless small glasses before you realise you... More

We booked well in advance which turned out to be a good idea - the restaurant was absolutely fully booked. Service was good and food good but not exceptional. Not the place to go if you are looking for a quiet romantic dinner.

We visited the winter market which was fantastic, this bar was just outside, popped in for a drink, they plonked us on a table with others which we were not really comfortable with so we asked to sit outside, that was fine, it was well heated, when I asked for white wine by the glass (which was listed on the...

Although we were here early, a little after 16:00, it was getting busy very quickly. And with that it became very noisy very quickly. The food itself is good, especially for the price. I had the "Zimspfanne" (Euro 17,90). It tasted very good and I will remember this one, just not in busy times.

We had a meal there on Christmas. Although it was very busy we've been seated quickly. The waiter was really nice and the service was swift and good. I had the pork knuckle; it was good size and delicious.
