I've been visiting here on and off since it opened and my last 3 visits have convinced me that the offering and quality is falling off. It's now much more about beer and curry-wurst than it was Zander and Sancerre ... The staff are still friendly and helpful though. If you're looking for something a little special then maybe look...

Good quality of the food, nonetheless the prices are not so average, due to the good position of the restaurant, nice views and all, you can leave the reastaurant without a penny. The currywurst with spicy something was gold

Nice atmosphere at dinner. Menu is not that rich in terms of food variety and the taste is "nothing special" plus it is quite dark overall. Service is very pleasant and fast. Big restaurant with available seating at all times. Modern and cozy.

We went there on New Year's Eve for breakfast. The buffet (€ 9,90) was excellent. A great variety of American and European breakfast including salads and fried eggs. Due to the elevation (5th floor) you can enjoy the Bielefeld skyline and the Teutoburger Wald.

Perfect location and cheap prices are the key features of this bar. Huge terrace with the view on the altstadt is a plus. Recommended!

Just like any other cocktail bar but with atmosphere and an open air balcony with city views. Bar staff friendly and gets packed on Saturday.

Midweek evening - quiet and with space on the outside veranda which gives a lovely view of the city.

The restaurant was most probably in the top floor. We sat in the open space. It seems that I can see whole Bielefeld from there. I could see the horizon. Then came the food. I tried for Salmon. Food was excellent in taste. And the strawberry smoothie was superb. I enjoyed the atmosphere as well as the food. Nice place... More

We went here for the buffet breakfast twice during our stay, the range of food available is amazing and it's very good. I can't actually think of anything that isn't available that you could possibly want to eat. The price includes a large fresh orange with other drinks being available at extra cost, it was 10 euros which I think... More
