The restaurant was chosen by my German colleagues for a team dinner. The staff organised a special large table for us and gave us very good service. We cooked our meat portions on special individual hot-stones which was an interesting novelty.

It is an interesting restaurant where you have to prepare the meat by yourself. Although this is interesting your clothes smell terribly after that. However the service is good, the beer and wine lists are also good. The selection of meats is also wide. If you like such kind of restaurants, it is good.

At this restaurant you cook your own food on a flat, hot stone. I recommend you order the mix platter and you can enjoy a variety of sliced and marinated meats, fruits, and vegetables. The servers are very helpful, and speak excellent English.

Great Food. Preparing the meat/fish directly at your table on a hot stone.
