Standard German meals, I think the meat was a bit on the dry side. Otherwise a busy night we visited, but still the waiter was smiling and friendly.

Nice ordfashioned place. We had today's lunch (turkey) which was very tasty. Such a large place with so many tables should have more waiters than those few working that day, though. We had to wait a little too long to be really content.
