The location is great, directly on the central square, but the service was very slow and the food was terrible. We ordered Goulash and 2 servings of Rouladen. The latter we had to return to the kitchen because the meat was hard as leather. The...More

I had the beef roulade and dumplings and my husband had the schnitzel. As with most German food it was wholesome but rather heavy. Service was OK - it took ages to get a second water glass.

Came in for a nice warm whilst visiting the Christmas markets. Friendly welcome and nice menu. Didn't have any food but some good local dishes- including some vegetarian ones. Sympathetically renovated inside.
