“Good, but could have been better”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2012

If you want to eat in this restaurant you will need to reserve a table, as it is extremely busy, mainly with locals. The dining rooms are candle lit and quite dark, but there is a good atmosphere in the place. We were all disappointed with our meal of tenderloin pork, as it was overcooked and not as tender as it should have been. However, the rest of the meal was excellent, and the salad was top class. The service was prompt, but a smile would have helped.

We ate dinner here when we were tired- having just arrived in Europe. Tasty food. Most delicious salad dressing- full of herbs.

“After two weeks of German food, this was our favorite!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2012

Each one of the four of us, tired of typical German fare, had our most favorite meal here. We laughed when the waitress brought our green salads and said, "here are your vitamins!" Pork tidbits with gravy and spaetzel didn't sound like it was all that special but it was fantastic. The rooms are dark and candle-lit and romantic or spooky, depending on your perspective. The kids chose to play I-spy with all the funky decorations in the place. We chose to try to translate the plates on the wall, and the waitress laughed hysterically when I asked her if she'd translate them for me: when the wife withers and fades, the husband goes wandering...

We stayed in this hotel and ate supper here both nights. It was that good--food, atmosphere, and service.
