Food was exceptional. Outdoor seating on a quiet street corner away from all the tourists. I had the venison goulash with noodles. Tastes like French brisket stew. So good. Would definitely come back again.

The interior of this cozy restaurant is charming. Our food was okay, the typical heavy German fare in gravy. The waitress was efficient but quite sour-faced. If the service had been pleasant our experience would have been much better.

We had the schnitzels and I have to say they were not the best. They are not bad but there are many better food options in the town.

Hi, I'm sorry, I'm not sure because we just went there and got a table. They are very accomodating, and I think if you go fairly early early, i.e., before 7 pm, you should be okay. The tourists seem to leave around that time.
