We sat in the back garden at a canopy covered table (good thing as there was a quick passing shower during the middle of our meal). The waitress is definitely a straight shooter who speaks no English and is not all all interested in any...More

I want to like this restaurant, it's small quite, clean. Three of the top choices for me, the food was well prepared, but the chef on the day I visited used to much salt for my taste. The goulash was everything a goulash should be...More

Four of us just ate dinner. Five beers and four entrees totaled €48. Very nice sized portions. English menus are available. No credit cards accepted. Lots of traditional German and several Czech dishes. Uber casual.
