Been here twice last year as my inlaws live very close. The food is fantastic, the wild boar was unbelievable, great wines and beers. It has a very warm and cosy feel. Will be back soon.

I visited this restaurant with my parents. Place is very nice with the atmosphere of old times. Service was pretty solid. Maybe better English of the staff could help. Food was simply great! We all got Wiener Schnitzel with salted potatoes. Totally recommended!
