I was in Bochum for business and wanted some lunch. I thought nothing could go wrong in a steakhouse, but little did I know. The "soup of the day" had probably started its life as powder in a bag, the salad was drowned in some unidentifiable pink dressing and the baked potato was burried under a heap of sour cream....

I have nothing bad to say about our dinner . The steak was out of this world, salad was very good and the wine was great. The staff were very friendly.
