We waited for 20 minutes on the terrace and still didn't get a menu. We just left without ordering and took a table at another restaurant on the square.

The food was great and the service as well. It is in a very nice area to sit outside. I would definitely recommend it.

We had a quick dinner at this resto. Good food, but the services could be improved. In good whether, sitting outside, enjoying dinner and drinks is nice. Our food selection for dinner was a standard one, and they are pretty pretty good.

Very good restaurant. I've been there for lunch with 2 friends. We took 2 flamenkuche and one spaghetti bolognese.Good surprise for germany my pastas were aldente! The portion was very generous. They have a theme food per day. One day for pasta, one day for meat, etc... Otherwise you can take the menu.

Thank jglassey .

Very rude service, bad food. Completely unapologetic about the terrible service. Very bad all around.

We're very sorry that you had such an experience. It would have been great if you had addressed directly our manager at the time. We could have corrected our mistake. Again, we are sorry and hope you give us an other chance to prove our quality in food and service. More

Everything said in the title. The food is good, the portions average, pricing is fair, not too big of a selection, always busy, typical German restaurant. In the evening, when the weather is nice, its lovely to sit outside, since it is right in the middle of Saarbrücken Old Town.

Very good restaurant. Food is very good, prices are what you can expect in this city. Restaurant is small and you need to make reservations.

We had a lovely meal, overlooking the market square. The salads here are particularly good, generous portions and a nice variety of ingredients. Very tasty we will definitely be going back. Prices were also very reasonable.
