We went there for hot drinks after a rare venture on the nearby iced Waldsee. The atmosphere was very pleasant with what looked like a recently modernised interior. Staff was attentive and friendly, drinks were good. We will try and go back for their music-themed nights (cocktail nights on Mondays, jazz on Tuesdays, etc.).

The Flammenkuchen was xcellent. The Spaetzle ( pasta dish) were burned black (!!!) - seriously, a quick way to warm up left over Spaetzle and even serve them black burnt? The Rahmsosse with mushrooms was a goo-ye gravy with canned mushrooms thrown in. I as in disbelief that the server would not refuse to serve this junk. She only shrunk... More

This is a small lake in very green area in the Freiburg perifery, in the direction from downtown to the Schwartwald, natural park. It is nice to drink coffee/wine in cafe on its coast with a nice view or climb on the nearest green hill with beautiful view over the whole area.

We came here in the dark mainly to get something to eat, as we had tickets for a concert in the venue adjoining the restaurant. So no idea how nice the setting might be in daylight! However, there was a very comprehensive menu (something for everyone) and the waitress was extremely cheerful and helpful (twice someone broke something and she... More

The restaurant is situated at the end of a lake but it was a little chilly when we visited so we sat inside. It wasn’t overly busy whilst we were there but there was only one waiter and he did his best but was obviously serving outside the restaurant and inside. I had my German phrase book with me and...

I did not eat at the restaurant here, although my friends had brunch here and had no complaints. I want to comment on this restaurant's student party held on Monday nights-TAG EINS. This is the place to be on mondays. Lots of students, cheap drinks, various djs, and a great environment. Waldsee has tons of space, and a lovely outdoor... More

The menu offers a variety of dishes. If they are all as tasteless as the ones I tried, well... maybe it's a better idea just to go grocery shopping and cook yourself.

We went for a few drinks and a little bit to eat. The waitress was very friendly. We ordered a currywurst and usually that should be a quick meal but we wait a good 45mins for ours, that could have been a bit quicker. But the meal was excellent and so was the atmosphere. The Euro Cup was going on... More
