Chose this restaurant because it serves only traditional german/regional food. The portion was very big and the food was enjoyable. Restaurant was packed but the service was good and the waitress was very nice and attentive. Price is very competitive Would definitely recommend

Right on the Marketplace in the center of town. We had to wait wellover 30 minutes for the daily special and finally obtained it after several appeals. It was outstanding, but the delay spoiled our experience (at noon on Sunday)
