Came here with my friends quite late one evening and we were 20 minutes late for our booking.. oops! Thankfully the staff still let us in and we quickly ordered drinks and food.

In case as a foreigner you would... More

Rustic German food. Rather expensive for the quality of the food. Very crowded on Friday night. Best reserve.

I ate a currywurst and had an Alte Beer at the Zum restaurant in the main train station. It was reasonably priced and very tasty.

Came here for a business dinner with a group of people - food is OK - our waiter was actually very pleasant - However we were told off by another waiter who yelled at us in the rudest possible German way for being too loud - mind you that people in the back of the restaurant were singing

I was here with a large group for business and enjoyed an enormous plate of oxtail stew. Very savory and enough for two!
