“A very good themed restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013 via mobile

Medieval themed restaurants plonk in the middle of historic old towns are not everyone's cup of tea. This one, however, is well executed and no tourist rip off. The good was sound tasty medieval fare, the serving boys and wenches attired in medieval costume were efficient polite and helpful. Not somewhere for a gourmand experience but good fun for a different night out. Euro 100 for two was about the correct price.

“Medieval all the way..”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

When coming to places like this one, I feel too much of a tourist because it is in every tourist guide. I like to be more local on my trips. But this was a pleasant surprise and I would recommend everyone to go once to feel the medieval atmosphere.

“It's a time tunnel to the 1500's!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

I and my wife with the collegues from my office chose this restaurant last Christmas to celebrate the year. I still cannot forget the experience I had that evening. As we entered in, the interior and the music mixed together with the wonderful smells of food took me to another world. Everyone were very friendly and smiling. The food we ordered was first class! I enjoy every second of it and recommend everyone to try.
