Very rude service, bad food. Completely unapologetic about the terrible service. Very bad all around.

We're very sorry that you had such an experience. It would have been great if you had addressed directly our manager at the time. We could have corrected our mistake. Again, we are sorry and hope you give us an other chance to prove our quality in food and service. More

Everything said in the title. The food is good, the portions average, pricing is fair, not too big of a selection, always busy, typical German restaurant. In the evening, when the weather is nice, its lovely to sit outside, since it is right in the middle of Saarbrücken Old Town.

Very good restaurant. Food is very good, prices are what you can expect in this city. Restaurant is small and you need to make reservations.

We had a lovely meal, overlooking the market square. The salads here are particularly good, generous portions and a nice variety of ingredients. Very tasty we will definitely be going back. Prices were also very reasonable.

the place is nice but too small.In the center of the city, easy to reach. You can seat outside. The bathroom is in a horrible condition. The food is good expecially the meat. Big plate. Drink a little expensive. Inside almost always full of people.

My friends and I went there last week. The food was as good as expected. It wasn't my first time, but every time I went there, I wasn't disappointed. I ordered spaghetti with seafood and my wife ordered a fish (Zander). Both of them are delicious. Some other friends ordered fish eintopf and they're also quite happy with that. In... More
