I'm not a fan of fried chicken (or any meat to be honest), but their fried chicken is amazing. It doesn't seem fried, but roasted, and it is sooooo juicy!

Gockelwirt is a very traditional German place with friendly people in a nice area. The food is amazing and you can taste the great quality of the meat. If you want to experience good food and a relaxing evening, this is the place to be!

In fact - we had a much better experience at one of the mountain top restaurants in the Alps a few days before - so we could compare... More
