The restaurant is located in the city centre of Bruehl. There are large public parking right next to it. The restaurant is quite big with, like the name suggest, a big patio.

I am only in Brühl once a year, but a visit to this restaurant is a must. I can only comment on the vegetarian paella, as it is the only thing I have. It is very, very good. It's a good idea if you know you want the paella to let them know when booking the table, as it takes... More
