We enjoyed our evening very much. The food was delicious as well as the accompanying wine. The Kaiserschmarren was one of the best I have ever had. The waiters were fabulous. Prices were reasonable. We definitely come back.

The setting is lovely,if for,al and stiff. The service is attentive, if a bit obsequious. The food, however, makes up for all. It is awesome. The wines match the food perfectly. I would not stay in the hotel, but if you are in the area...More
