Their statement "Best German food outside Germany" is very true. The restraint atmosphere is great, the service and food is great, it is moderately expensive but worth it. Our party of four had different meals and all A1

Okay so this is a German restaurant/ coffe shop/ take away place. Food is Yum Ciffe was great and I had my first large proper pretzel. Two boys had the German sausage on a roll and enjoyed. Took some shortbread back home for my hubby. Everyone was happy.
