The atmosphere of the restaurant and the service are fine. The food is not spectacularthe menu offers maybe too many options (german, greek, italian food) and we did not choose the best ones. Well-located.

Simply great. We found this place accidentally walking through the streets of Aachen, it was quite full - it is always a good sign. The place is great, very tasty food, big portions and unbelievably good prices! Definitely going back!
