From the outside, the restaurant can look like a tourist trap with bad quality food and high prices, but DO NOT be fooled. We ate there at three occasions during our trip, and have to say that all the above was not true: the food...More

We stopped from dinner on our way back to our hotel. We found the food and service good. The price for our meal was very reasonable. The menu was in multiple languages including English and had a good variety of options.

Huge beer menu, loads of choice. Food was decent and large portions. Lots of meat in the dishes and service was fine. I would drink and eat there again quite happily. The beef capriccio was the best part of the meal.
