Superb venue, has a very relaxed and homely feel. Staff friendly and efficient. Have eaten here a few times and the food never disappoints. The cherry on top is the very reasonable prices. Definitely a repeat customer!

Great atmosphere, delicious food, wide selection of beers both local and imported. It's a large restaurant with a separate bar area, the service is great, and the prices are reasonable. Good for a boys night, or a chilled meal with friends.

Still one of my all time favourites, been going there for the last 20 years as it is 500m from my house! food is always good, service is ok and it is a great meeting place when I have to entertain customers, our staff Christmas party was held there, always the best Eisbien in SA!

A pleasant setting tucked out of the way in Ferndale, quiet, with both inside and covered outdoor tables. My friend and I visited on a weekday lunchtime and the place was almost empty. We sat at an outside table and had to wait for a server to attend but the service was otherwise good. Bear in mind that the portions... More

A real little gem with a good atmosphere and food. Provide a consistent experience and overall enjoyment. Would only really take kids there for lunch as the evenings are more a pub experience with a lot of alcohol flowing.

Totally disorganized. Despite booking 6 weeks in advance, and being regular patrons, they gave us an awful table in the sun unsuitable for 8 pax let alone the 14 we booked for. Had to beg for service. Arrived at 12:30pm. Lunch arrived at 4pm.

This was a regular favourite of mine. Hadn't been there in a year. Very disappointing. Standards have dropped significantly. Grubby menus that aren't up to date with the actual offerings. Pork schnitzel was dry/overcooked crumb covering falling off. Mushroom sauce good. Sauerbraten dry, cut too thick & sauce ordinary. Bratkartofel was poor. Really just thick sliced & lightly fried potato.... More
