The bar and restaurant area are both clean and well presented. The staff are attentive and friendly. Try their Schnitzel alternatives. The Kolsch is cold and fresh and the menu will work up your appetite.

The menu is themed to German political humor and it is good fum. Prices are reasonable, had the super secret-details redacted-Thueringer sausage, my wife had the carpaccio which was excellent! Good beer, fun view of the park and the Rhine.
