If you like fish, this cozy place is the place to go. The young cheerful waitress didn't even let us read the whole menu, as it seems the best way to order here is to let them give you a few choices and then recommend something. The fish comes prepared one of three ways: steamed, smoked, or lightly pan-fried. I think pan-fried was the best, but my husband also enjoyed the smoked ones. They have many types of fish to offer- bass, halibut, catfish, etc. You can choose a large portion or a smaller one, with bones or without, one type of fish or two. Most dishes come with all-you-can-eat oven-fried potatoes and a very nice salad with lots of yummy bits in it- not just plain lettuce and the token tomato slice. Two sauces are offered with your plate of food- a mustard sauce and a tomato-mushroom sauce. The mustard sauce is amazing, especially when paired with a squeeze of lemon. Both sauces are great on the fish as well as the potatoes. We shared a shrimp soup, which turned out to be a very different flavor than expected- it was almost tropical and fruity, but wonderful. They brought us some peel-and-eat shrimp as a starter as well. I'm not sure if they asked us, or just brought them. Additionally when we had finally cleaned our plates and thought we could eat no more, a waiter brought us another filet of pan-fried catfish.
Our waitress spoke excellent English and provided an English menu, but if you know a little German you might want to forego the English menu because some food descriptions don't really translate all that well.
They do 2 seatings each evening (17:30 and 20:00), and they recommend reservations. We got lucky by showing up at 18:30 and a table had already been vacated, but there's no guarantee you'll be so lucky; we did have to make sure we were gone by 20:00, which was no problem. If you have 2 to 4 people, and this place is on your way, it's worth it to take the chance, as the food was really nice, not something you find just anywhere. But if you've a larger group or are celebrating, call ahead. Be aware that they don't take credit cards. Our cost per person with a starter, entree, and cola was around 30 Euro.
The chef makes it his mission to greet every guest, and the staff were attentive. Eating here was an experience you shouldn't miss.
