I think you just have to ask why? Why is such a potentially great location wasted on hamburgers and chips? The food is average, the service is average, the location is great but the river front area is quite disgustingly dirty. It feels like a Mc D. in restaurant form, sorry but not my taste!

We stopped by to enjoy a beer at this beautifully located Cafe. Beer was good as always in Freiburg, service was good and very friendly, but the grounds in front of the Cafe were filthy, strewn with empty beer and schnaps bottles, cigarette butts and other trash. Though the area between the walkway and the restaurant probably does not belong... More

We have stayed in Freiburg for the last half a year and finally decided to try out this place today because of its nice location. It was by far our worst restaurant experience in this town! The service is abysmal. When we sat down a waitress saw us, but for the next 20 minutes decided to neither clean up our... More

This place is great. Location is perfect. Near the water and lots of tables outside. Menu in German and English. Service is quick and really friendly. Everything we have order was yummy and they have pretty big portions. Would recommend.

Like some other people already mentioned, the location by nice weather just nearby the river and quite central can be a delight. It can get quite crowded outside when the sun is shining and at those times the waiting time to get your meal or drinks increases considerably. My experience with the staff was overall okay and they have been... More

We had a good and quit cheap brunch this sunday morning. All what you want buffet. The sunny terrasse along the river is full. Inside the cafe, we eat in front of a video showing barely nude skinny girl on the walls (so called fashion exhibition). Nobody seems to be surprised. Am i alone to be upset of this sexist... More

It is an nice place where you have nice view of the river, you can sit outside and enjoy brunch, lunch or dinner. They have also happy hours and special offers for certain days of the week. It has a good variety for burgers or pizza , sandwiches etc.

Very nice location. You can sit next to the "Dreisam" river. I had brunch with my girlfriend there and it was a big variety of food. It was tasty an fresh. I will definetely come again to try the maincourses.

The restaurant is located in the levees of the river Dreisam, equipped with a large parking place, the environment and the food are good with a wide choice of alcoholic and non alcoholic beverages. I recommend it for young people to spend a beautiful night on the banks of a river with a romantic and relaxing environment.

Local friends took me to this favourite haunt touching the gentle Dreisam in central Freiburg. Aside from the excellent 'all you can eat' breakfast, the atmosphere is relaxing and perfect for a detox. Good mixture of hot and cold breakfast fayre n unlimited supply. Drinks hot and cold inexpensive. Waiters and waitresses attentive without being OTT. A good mixture of... More
