A very nice little restaurant, definitely one for the railway enthusiasts. Nice and warm on a cold day, and beautifully laid out and decorated. Food was good (I had Wiener Schnitzel with beautifully cooked boiled potatoes) and service was friendly. Highly recommended.

It is a perfect restaurant with authentic vintage atmosphere. The service was very fast and friendly. We ate a 2 person platter. The portions was large and the meal was fine. The prices are medium level.

I have been there with my 16 years daughter and we both enjoyed our time there and the meal. I ordered goose-chef speciality and I would come again to order that. We recommend this restaurant.
