And they took Visa. We had excellent sauerbraten and Deer goulash along with all the trimmings. The desserts were also very good and overall a good value for a tourist area.

The meals (Schnitzel & Spätzle and Schweineschäufle & dumplings) were large in portion and for a reasonable price, served quickly. The taste was good, as expected, but no "ohs and ahs".. The typically German wooden interior and charming atmosphere does it all for you, really!...More

Food was exceptional. Outdoor seating on a quiet street corner away from all the tourists. I had the venison goulash with noodles. Tastes like French brisket stew. So good. Would definitely come back again.

The interior of this cozy restaurant is charming. Our food was okay, the typical heavy German fare in gravy. The waitress was efficient but quite sour-faced. If the service had been pleasant our experience would have been much better.

Hi, I'm sorry, I'm not sure because we just went there and got a table. They are very accomodating, and I think if you go fairly early early, i.e., before 7 pm, you should be okay. The tourists seem to leave around that time.
