We chose this restaurant based on the glowing trip advisor reviews. It is the first major let down deciding based on trip advisor. It looked promising at first as the place was heaving with people and the food on their plates looked nice. The young lady who first assisted us was friendly and made us feel welcome, until an older... More

Best restaurant in town? Actually it is more of a small cafe but serves great home cooked meals in large portions at very decent prices. Can't beat this quality at these prices. Friendly owners. We enjoyed our dinner and wholeheartedly recommend this place.

Came here with fiancée and extended family members. There was no seating outside so we sat inside. Place is clean and its outdated decor is part of its charm and appeal. This is exactly what we were looking for! :) The old, graceful couple that run this place are lovely! They speak limited English, but the menu has German, English... More
