nice outdoor seating on the Saar river, extremely busy - under big old trees - area without seating reservation - has also nice restaurant and covered patio seating - reservation required - excellent food and not just from the "ente" = Duck - Duck breast with salad was very good - as where all the other dinners - service a little on the slow side - (everything was packed)

We started our meal with the baked cheese, so good. The schnitzel was delicious and the serving size very generous.
The surroundings are really quiet and pleasant and on a sunny day is really nice to sit outside and enjoy the fresh air.
Make sure you visit the ducks in the river, they love it if you bring them some food!

On warm summer afternoon the terrace and beer garden with its wooden tables and benches is a delightful place to sit, drink, eat and watch the passing cyclists, and the ducks and geese of the nearby slow-moving Saar river. The food is German fare with a regional Saarland touch. It is good, not great. Sauerbraten with gravy and 'Hoorische' (elongated potato dumplings), the Wiener Schnitzel (pork, not veal unfortunately), the Apfel Kuechel (deep fried, not pan fried, again: unfortunately) were all good, the Espresso with Eier Likoer is a gigantic concoction, and very filling, the Erdinger dark Weissbeer is to die for. Service has vastly improved over the years, which is good. The inside of the restaurant is nicely decorated, Bavarian style. Parking available. Recommended.

This restaurant specializes in two things only: roast duck and roast goose. There are a few other things on the menu but for the optimal experience stick with either of these. Ordering is fairly simple; a half or a whole bird and both come with the traditional red cabbage and potato sides.
They do have a web site and in spring and summer it is always best to try to book ahead as the location is right at riverside and is a very popular stop with local motorcycle riders and clubs
as well as families local and otherwise.
There is beer on tap and also a grappe exclusive to them which is quite nice after such a full meal. It is slightly sweet and raisiny with a peppery back bite.
The winter menu still features the same meats but with a bread stuffing option as well.
Worth a trip in any season.
