Traditional north German fare. Never had a bad meal here. Can be crowded at lunch. Has a nice beer garden in the interior. Beer is ice cold!

It is often that German food is categorized as monotone... This restaurant is the living proof that even simple things, finely cooked with a lot of heart, are delicious...top place

A really enjoyable meal out in a lovely atmosphere with a nice cosy pub feeling. Sat at the bar to eat our spargiel, potatoes and pork schnitzel. Loved watching the hard working and friendly staff

Cozy ambience with Rathskeller feel. The mixed grill plate (steak, pork, turkey, brat and bacon) complemented with potatoes was tasty and obviously filling. Pils poured well but save thirst for the Prince kirsch.

Place is savage cabbage.. Mix grill beef turkey pork, bacon, sausage and just about every other type meat known to man.. Good portions of spuds with it... Partner had bowl of soup with meat my god so much meat in the bowl.. Its hidden little gem well worth the hunt to look for. Will not be disappointed.

The atmosphere is really nice. The style of the restaurent is german old fashion. Service is good. Unfortunately the food is not as expected. I ordered fried potatoes and special prepared meat. I got INSTANT not fried potatoes and canned meat.

Local Food, a good beer, a cosy Athmosphere and a fair price! If possible, take a seat in the Garden. Reservation is recommended

Great spot to eat real traditional German food from the Braunschweig region. Quality is good. In summertime there is a little garden on the backside of the building.

We were looking for authentic German restaurant (which wasn't an easy task) and the clerk in the tourist info office suggested this place. And I am glad he did. Great German food, big portions, amazing beer, fast and efficient service, totally affordable prices. Definitely worth a visit.

Thank MajaPintar
