Good location, but very slow and unfriendly service. We had to remind them several times about our order and the restaurant was not even full. Avoid!

Visited on a fairly quiet night and had the schnitzel which was very good. Was recommended a good wine by the glass to accompany by the waitress. Attentive service. It was good but nothing really stood out to award higher marks.
