This a place for an easy lunch either inside or outside. In the terrace the service may sometimes be slow but is still nice. A good sign is that also locals tend to eat here. Or have a drink. Prices are affordable and the taste...More

Spur of the moment lunch choice with good service and old world atmosphere. I had the wiener schnitzel and it was delicious! The veal was very crispy and the potato/cucumber salad creamy and crunchy. Both parties of diners on either side of me were enjoying...More
