The food here is amazing as is the atmosphere. I've been here several times and have always been more than satisfied with what I've gotten. I recommend #104,115,341 and 178.

this restaurant has typical local food most of it based on potatoes as the name suggests. can recommend the duck with dumplings. also the schnitzel was nice. typical food and restaurant always busy with visitors (they have an english menu as well). i think it lives more through its location. nice but you can go better. nice to sit outside...
