This is supposedly one of the places where a group of you order lots of small dishes and then share them. In reality I suspect that doesn't happen much - it's also a bit tricky if there's only 2 of you. However, it's still a starter/main/dessert place and the food is very good.
The only downside on the evening we went is that they had a sound track on a loop that was basically 'disco' beat. You can always escape outside on warm evenings. Maybe the kitchen staff like it ;-)

I probably would have enjoyed this more if the waiting staff had explained at the outset that the concept was tapas and we would then have ordered more dishes rather than ending up under ordering. But even so, the idea of German tapas is a bit hard to come to terms with as I'm not sure that the dishes go together - curry sausage and chips and meatballs? And the vanilla ice cream with fruits (read apple) was not really what we expected. Having said that, the quality was good, although the drinks were expensive. A nice, relaxing ambiance and the experience would have been improved if we'd understood how it worked!

Recommended in our guidebook. Nice, modern interior. Staff were lovely and friendly. It was a Saturday around 2pm so the place was empty but they were still welcoming. The waiter explained the menu and how we should order which was very helpful. We had a currywurst each which was really tasty and a good price. We perhaps could have ordered another small dish just to bulk the meal out. If we went back we'd be a bit more adventurous and order a little more. A negative - the drinks were pricey compared to the food. A positive - they gave us a little selection of breads with a tzatziki dip which was a very nice little extra. If you're in the Platz area (which again we recommend) definitely give this a try.

This is the German equivalent of a tapas restaurant where you can try small portions of a few different dishes. We had the duck and the classic nuremberg sausages after starting with a taste of the local hams. All in all it was all very well prepared and we thoroughly enjoyed our evening. The service was very warm and we let the waiter choose our wines which added to the experience.

The price of the food is very nice indeed and the setting is also very nice. The foods was well prepared. The only negative thing was the portionsize. This was unlike other German restaurants a bit small....
