Had a couple of nights in here in January 2017. Lively, smart place with a good atmosphere with reasonably priced food and drink. The buffet is a bit expensive but pretty good. I had the "piella" which is mainly sea food in sauce, great value.

The Penguin restaurant was lousy in the Nest hotel so we searched for a great little place for food. Barrels is it. Its tiny so get there early and check out opening times they are very specific. It is a small and social pub and you will probably end up sharing your table but we loved the social vibe of... More

Not a huge selection of food but it is tasty and good value. The Eisbein ( pork knuckle) and buffet are recommended. Fresh crayfish for seafood lovers. Efficient and friendly service. One bit of advice. They open at 1800 Monday to Friday. The venue is small and by 1830 there are often not seats left. Get their early

A very nice restaurant with a good atmosphere. We got warmly welcomed and because we didn't had a reservation we could sit at the bar which was also perfect. We watched some sports and chatted with the barmen. The food was absolutely wonderful. The owner also stop by to make sure everything was perfect. Absolutely bring this restaurant a visit.... More

We had the buffet dinner and thoroughly enjoyed it. The place has a real nice cosy feel about it. Even the way the food is kept warm on open fires is neat

The restaurant is very small and therefore can only accommodate a few diners. However, when our party of 11 arrived for dinner, we immediately felt that we were in the way of the busy waiters and people trying to eat and intended to leave - The staff noted this and made a plan to seat us outside in a private...

If you want fine dining and overly attentive service, this is probably not for you. But if you want a taste of hearty, unfussy, (and meaty) local cuisine; friendly atmosphere; a good range of drinks, then certainly stop by! The food is hearty and delicious, if basic but at no point does it not do exactly what it says on... More

So we visited this place for old years eve because it received such great reviews. As we walked in the owners introduced himself and read us our rights. Cash only, you pay for your drinks and food upfront and collect your own order from the bar and the food from the kitchen. Well okay that seems ok until you have... More
