We stopped in here for drinks on our way to dinner. We sat out on the sidewalk and enjoyed people watching while enjoying our drinks. Pleasant staff and great list of wines and beers.

Great place for some delicious cheese, good selection of meat, and excellent wine. Nice atmosphere, good service. We had a cheese and meat platter, and a bottle of local pinot noir which was excellent. Very close to the Rhine for a nice stroll afterwards.

Very nice bar and restaurant near the river with a great selection of bottled beers. Good atmosphere and the food looked really good. Some interesting chilli cocktails which I didn't try, and homemade lemonade so good variety of options provided.
