Truly — I had veal and my partner had the chicken. Both of our dumplings were tasteless mashes of boiled bread. Nothing wonderful or memorable! We ordered on of the salads to share before the meal and it was fresh and quite delicious!

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal here. Local dishes (ie meat) served in a very pleasant setting with friendly service. Restaurant is obviously mentioned in some tour guides as there were quite a few tourists there (but locals too).

We had a very good and very filling dinner here and it did not appear to be as touristy as some other places. My wild boar was lovely and tender and there were three large pieces so I had to struggle to finish it. My...More
