Great building - poor service

I dined at the Alte Friesenstube with my parents. A very charming old building and a really lovely cosy ambience inside. We were greeted by rushed staff and that did not change during the meal. We were not that hungry so choose light meals. Food was fine but the service was too rushed which made us... read more

Fish aplenty; beautiful traditional decor alone is worth the visit. Dunner served in two shifts: either 6 or 8.30pm. Make sure you reserve, as it gets packed, and take along plenty of spare time, since service is extremely slow. We waited almost an hour between starters and mains!
