We had the schnitzels and I have to say they were not the best. They are not bad but there are many better food options in the town.

Not sure Roy. We were there mid December and they all were open. Perhaps check directly with the restaurant via their email address. Great local restaurant in very tourist town. Enjoy.
Are you open for lunch on Thursday (Dec 22nd 2016)?

Hi, I'm sorry, I'm not sure because we just went there and got a table. They are very accomodating, and I think if you go fairly early early, i.e., before 7 pm, you should be okay. The tourists seem to leave around that time.
