I visited with 15 colleagues but came before in a group of 3, they managed us very well with food and drink. We mainly had pizzas (really nice calzone ) with some pasta dishes that were also good. Recommended. A short walk from the s-bahn as well as several hotels (as others have mentioned).

We had a company supper, where the staff was not friendly enough, probably knew that baksis is not to be expected. The waiter did not know what a ceasar salad is. Sorry this is a no go.

Very close to the Hotel Ibis, literally just round the corner. Enjoyed the Bruschetta followed by a pasta dish. Lots of families on the night of my visit. Pizzas looked good and the waiters boxed up any leftovers. Clean, tidy, good service from the staff and reasonably priced.

The food was good. It is a bar with a restaurant in the back, so it is good for both eating and hanging out.

Eat here because it was close to the Holiday Inn Express. I was here visiting my boyfriend at the weekend whilst he was working for 2 weeks. The interior is surprising based on the exterior. A pirate ship comes to mind. Started the evening with drinks on the 'terrace' in the last of the evening sunshine. You are in the... More

I thought that the food here was good and the prices were mid-range for the amount/quality. The service has always been excellent and the waiters/waitresses that we have gotten have all spoken English. The real reason that my family and I go back though is because it is a good place with our two young boys. There aren't a lot... More

This restaurant is recommended by the Holiday Inn Express as the best restaurant around. It is certainly the closest and the night we were staying it was raining cats and dogs so close was good. Actually we got pretty soaked in just the two minutes it took to get there. I had not appreciated that it was an Italian restaurant... More

This restaurant is a short walk from the Ibis if you happen to be staying there before/after a flight. We had dinner on a week night, and the restaurant was not full by any means. The service was incredibly slow, and the staff bordered on being rude. The food, however, was pretty good and reasonably priced.
