Really enjoyed this place for what it is: classic small town Bavarian restaurant with hearty portions, good prices and straight forward menu. Had dinner here midweek on a snowy night in January. Friendly staff, good food. Felt like a place that locals and tourists both enjoyed.

Bit of a tourist trap but the food was very good on the whole. The dessert - Germknodel - was out of a pack and badly microwaved. Avoid.

Ready the other reports, we expected a lot. Too much, maybe. The meat was good, like the various things that came with it. The salad bar was looking pretty good, but tasted very bad. It tasted like it all passed the consumption time limit. Tomato's that did not have any taste and could be sucked through a straw because they... More

Wonderful hearty Bavarian food at sensible prices. Great location connected to the hotel. Attentive staff and lovely atmosphere. Try this before any other restaurant in the area.

The restaurant is located in the city center and it is a good place to stop by for a quick lunch or snack. There is a variety of local food available. International guests are welcome.

Good service & food, but the noise level was way too low. I had the Rouladen (meat spike on the English menu) which was okay, but the cabbage that came with it was delicious. My husband's meal was good (pork & spatzle) as well. The restaurant itself, although crowded, was extremely quiet where we felt weird speaking to each other... More

Given English menus and treated like old friends. Ordered the turkey cutlet with herb butter. Came with French fries that were coked to perfection. Plenty of ketchup packets too. Also had mixed vegetables and they were very good too. So good we came back the next day and ordered it again. Would highly recommend this restaurant. Decent prices and big... More
