I accidentally walked into the Alcazar with a friend. The interior is more like a Kneipe with wooden tables, and such. We ordered fish, and penne with Gorgonzola. Great taste, fast, friendly service on our side. Would recommend going here again.

On any evening, you might find pastas, salads, potato dishes, perhaps duck or something Asian inspired. The wines are decent and don't cost much. You can't go wrong drinking kölsch, the... More
