Nice beer house with very good food. Big chunks of tasty meat and lovely beer. A bit noisy as it is a big room / open space.

If you fancy a decent local meal and a ultra-local brew, come seat down a german styled biergarten with huge local crowds and a lonely tourist. You'll not leave hungry.

The tour was really interesting and our tour guide, Gregor, was very knowledgable. The food in the restaurant was tasty and there was a nice variety of beer.

If you like big, loud, crowded places its the way to go. There are no wines here but you really need one with the heavy food they are serving. No vegeterian options but they were kind enough to make same changes which is nice. Only...More

Nothing really to say, negligent service in low traffic hours, the house's beer, to which there are endless superior alternatives and a menu that would honour every greedy franchise outlet.

Great idea with this three mix sorts of beer for dagustate. By their wide offer anybody can find beer that suits them. Ambient is nice, good idea but basic looking. Lack of details but overall good concept beer with snacks. The food on the other...More
