Great authentic German food and beer. Small restaurant. Some of the decor is a bit strange (dolls. etc.) but the service is great and friendly. One of the better meals we had on the trip.

This is a really cute German restaurant with good and authentic German food. Servings are ala carte. Great German Potato Salad and Red Cabbage. My husband and I like the Schnitzels.
