“Excellent service, very good food, very good selection of beers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

Atmosphere is typical of a cozy beer place of Central Europe. You could feel being in Czech republic, Germany or Hungary. Food is good. Selection of beer very refined, and the service was of particular notice. Will go back.

“Go for the schnitzel!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012 via mobile

We really enjoyed our enormous Schnitzel, washed down with copious amounts of non-alcoholic brewed malt beverage. Terrific potatoes and nice spicy coleslaw for sides.
