I like to come here for a good meal and nice beer. The restaurant is famous for beer that they make themselves in their own small brewery. In the summer, you can also sit outside. They offer buffet every day at lunch time and special buffet offers for Christmas, Easter, Mother´s Day. The waiters are very friendly. The only negative... More

Old fashioned German food, nice atmosphere with self-brewed beer (which you can buy in a vintage bottle and take home and have it refilled for charge). So +++ on the atmosphere, but food is more average.

I arrived late for a meal with a group of colleagues. The waiters took me under their wing and had me seated and served in time to catch up with the buzz around the table. The food is traditional local fare, ideal for the winter nights. The beer is also excellent - Licher is a local weiss beer that added... More

The interior is nice, spacious; the biergarten is just a layout of tables in the car yard. The service was helpful; the beers are ok, the Dunkel being better than the others.

Went to the restaurant twice during my stay and both times we loved it. The food was great, really tasty and big portions. The service was fast even the restaurant was full. Great place for a good time with friends out.

A perfect combination of traditional German cuisine and local cuisine. One problem: overly large portions! It seems that eating is "national sport" in Germany :-) Excellent dish "Wiener Schnitzel with fries" Serving Size XXL!

This was my second visit. The beer is excellent, especially after a day's business. The staff are helpful and offer menus in English. A great choice of food, a lot of meat but pizza and vegetarian options too. Recommended!

Nice restaurant. Good quality/prices ratio. Menu in english is available and also english speaking service. Large choice of dishes, bear and wines, good location and simply to find, original german-like decoration. Generally a lot of customers and friendly atmosphere. Can recommend without any doubt.
