Savored a wonderful dinner. The Berlin style pork knuckles, goulash and schnitzel was oo la la. And the price is very reasonable. Highly recommended for any first timer to Berlin.

What a quaint slightly off the beaten track restaurant. The services was excellent and subtle. The portions were ample and presented perfectly. We had three courses Berlin style pork and chicken schnitzel finishing with a digestif. Very reasonably priced. Worth a visit.
