“Authentic & Tasty”
Reviewed September 28, 2011

We ate dinner here on our one night stay in Freiburg im Breisgau on our way back to Paris. A short distance from Münsterplatz, we settled on this restaurant after passing it twice and not sure if we were making the right decision. All doubts were gone with the warm welcome and the delicious food; tasty goulash and an excellent rump steak with a bottle of sparkling. For dessert we split a cappuccino and a delectable Black Forest Cake.

“Genuine kitchen”
Reviewed August 12, 2008

We were here for dinner, choosing among the different restaurants in Freiburg city centre only following our "sixth sense". We were looking for an informal restaurant, to experience typical south Germany dishes and we were not disappointed. We ordered pork and beef meat with roasted potatoes and spetzel: all wonderful.
Please consider that this is not a michelin rated restaurant, but the genuine kitchen, kindness of the owners and the atmosphere itself worth the stay.
Good quality/price. Would go back for sure!
