We dived into this place to escape heavy rain and ended up eating. More of a beer house chain with food and very acceptable.

Superbly cooked steaks, wonderful food and excellent service. Reasonably priced too. Staff were very helpful, even though we could not speak German, they spoke English quite well and the food was delicious. Very good serves as well. No dessert required as we were too full just from the main course!!!!

I had a family night here last Saturday, but the only problem I found was the heat in the restaurant, it was very uncomfortable and no air con or window open, but besides that the food was very good and the service, I won't return because of the heat tho.pitty nice restaurant.

I've been there for a dinner with a colleague of mine. In a nice atmosphere, I've ordered a fillet with country potatoes: both of the things were very good (especially the meat was great). Even the ice-cream was good (the strawberry flavour had pieces of strawberry inside). The waitress was kind and smiling (I always apreciate kindness and "smiling attitude").... More

Saff not friendly, very poor quality of food inundated with sauces that caused us stomach pain all night. Only worth it for the buffett of fresh vegetables. Absolutely to be avoided for the rest.

John Benton restaurant in Augsburg is close to the city centre and offers a good selection of 'steak house' type meals. Good value and the staff are friendly. Ideal place if you want something fairly simple and inexpensive. Soup, half rack of ribs and chips, plus 1.5 beers was 17 Euros

This restaurant was a positive surprise. Very central in the pedestrian area with excellent steaks and beers. We went there with our 2 Kids 4 and 8 years old, and as they were not able to deliver french fries that evening (we got riz), our kids were offered the ice cream for free. We very much appreciated and had a... More
