Both casual free outside seating in the courtyard or formal seating inside. Excellent service and unobtrusive leaves you alone with your friends till closing time, size able food portions, to die for crisp salads and a choice of menu makes this place a regular with visitors and locals alike. Must visit in case you are at 2 of the closet... More

I would rate this at a 3.5 if I could. The service was not as bad as some of the people on here are making it out to be. In fact, our waitress was impressed I tired to speak German to her and was very patient with me. The food was nothing out of the ordinary for a EUR breakfast.... More

We've eaten here so many times over the years. The food doesn't disappoint, though the portions are too large and it seems a lot of food goes to waste. But the service here is terrible, rude, arrogant. We notice the service is especially worse for foreigners. We've stopped going after three bad experiences with staff who were intolerant of us...

My friends and I love Starks, we've been lunching there for years now and while the prices and servings may vary from time to time we still stop by every couple of months!

Been here a couple of times and there's nothing really special but to observe people and pass time.. Much better to sit during summer.

While it wouldn't disappoint you very much, it wouldn't impress you very much, either. I wouldn't recommend this place to a tourist who make his/her stay memorable. Waiters/waitresses are only there to bring your meals/drinks to your table; They won't try to have a conversation with you. Also, expect to get exposed to a lot of tobacco smoke. Everything on...

Nice outside place for seen and being seen. The best tomato soup ever (with nice cheese and pesto). All pizzas were deliciously dressed and came hot to the table, as the coffee. However, the schnitzels + potatoes were oily and somehow with industrialized taste (cheap!). Service still need attention as my soup didn't came together with my other friends starter... More

No ec cards - only cash - not acceptable. I dont remember a single bar or restaurant in MA where you only can pay with cash. That is really a poor service.

Starks is blessed with the best location; in the city centre. When the sun is shining, there is no better place to sip a drink either with friends or on your own. I have been to Starks several times; the location was always the main reason why we chose it, especially in spring-summer (April- September). The drinks are good, but... More
