Fantastic meal. Had the Schnitzel.....was simply fantastic. Portions were large. Waitstaff was attentive without hovering and very friendly. The service was prompt. It was a bit on the pricey side.....but not to the point of making this only an occasional visit. Will definitely go back.

We have been to this restaurant a good number of times. Food is consistently very good. My husband likes the German dishes; I love the shrimp dish. The fries and cooked vegetables were wonderful. Desserts - divine. Good service.

For years we have enjoyed the delicious food at this small, family owned restaurant. Bistro like in appearance it is casual and offers tender veal that will linger in your food memory bank. Service is genuine in its warmth. It is one of our favorites...More

We were looking for somewhere nearby and tried this, largely based on the excellent reviews, for an early evening meal. Didn't start well, as they had no bottles of still water and NO fruit juices whatsoever and only one beer on tap. Menu options explained...More
