Visited several times. Love the food; great selection. Friendly staff. Highly recommend this restaurant for 'Flammküchen' - one of the best we've had. Great for a couple of drinks on a lazy Sunday with friends. We take all of our visitors for at least a couple of beers. Good open space outside, with the option to sit inside.

I don't know how this place managed to be mentioned in the Lonely Planet. They are unprofessional and rude. You don't feel welcome at all there. We ordered some Schnitzel; every little extra was priced (like a bit of sauce)... Not recommendable - we won't come again.

What a great option if you want to start trying the delicious German cuisine! Great service and food, with large portions (but individual) and great beer as well. Definitely a must-go.

I have visited this restaurant with colleagues, after work. Good beer selection, the food quality is only everage and the service too. Some waiter was not gentle as expected.

We went for dinner after the cinema on a saturday night. It was quite busy, and we waited at the bar for about 10 minutes before being seated. We would have been happy to eat at the bar itself, but didn't know how to communicate this in German. Service was friendly, the atmosphere was good - a bit grungy, and... More

When this place opened about 40 years ago it was a kind of a student bar. But with the time not only this restaurant/bar got older but its customers as well. Nowadays the customers are from all ways of life. It is still a pleasant place with a nice friendly service. For it's inner city location the prices are moderate.... More
