Found this nice place through the good commentaries on Tripadvisor and I loved the place. Always a bit awkward to have dinner in a restaurant on my own. But this place has a very comfortable atmosphere, friendly staff, good local beer Kölsch) and food.

Recommended by our Apartment reception, we visited with family to this busy, local establishment. We enjoyed excellent beer whilst waiting for a table and then our tasty food. The apple pancake was so good that we returned for another later in the week!
