Lovely food and great location. Beer is very good. Only thing I would say is that service to the outside area needs to be improved. Every time I needed a waiter they were nowhere in sight for at least 10 mins. I would recommend it...More

Stopped here for the pork knuckle, and it didn't disappoint. Good service and good beer. Staff are friendly and even made a joke in English that a kid could finish the massive portion.

I don't know why we went here. We wanted to have traditional food. But if you're not a meathead, you shouldn't go here. We should've known better. The waiters were nice though, and it's on a central spot.

This place is awesome. Friendly and fast service, right on the square with outside seating, and of course the food. I had the ham knuckle and apple strudel and hot damn it was so good I felt things I haven't felt in years.

I had never had Pig's Knuckle - it was delicious! Crispy skin on the outside and tender meat on the inside. I got it with sauerkraut, which was also delicious. The dish was huge - I highly recommend sharing it or planning on taking some...More
