Arrived at this busy place after hearing mostly good things. Looked around for a table in a served area and within seconds a waiter spotted us. He directed us to follow a colleague. As we were doing so a party pushed in front of us....The waiter checked it was them the colleague had directed and they lied and said yes. As he turned round he saw us and I told him. More apologetic he could not have been. Thing is, they (6 of them) then we’re squashed round a tiny tiny table, whereas two of us had a huge table!! I gave them my finest smug smile.
Served by Andreas all lunch. He was attentive, helpful, informative and it was a pleasure to be looked after by him. Decent Grüner to drink, very good schnitzel and spaghetti to eat and then germknödel for pud. Everything enjoyed. And remembering you are 2000m up a mountain I thought for served food it was excellent value. People such as Nick E need to understand and realise these places are a business. Why should you get your water for free? It’s not free to them. And lagle L, I don’t blame these places for charging for reservations. The number of numpties who don’t turn up for reservations and inevitably costs these places money is ridiculous. The restaurant gives you something in return in acknowledgement of the fact that you have paid up front. Whilst you are all having a moan, look around, think of the investment, the hassle, and having to put up with rude tourists, I think the vast majority of these restaurants need a medal for putting up with the moaning people you all paint yourselves to be! Once again, Andreas thank you for your service. We will come back.More
