Last year and the year before I had goose leg with dumplings for lunch in December and it was crisp, freshly roasted, absolutely delicious. Unfortunately I was not able to eat there this year during my visit to Berlin.

Stopped by for an authentic schnitzel and the food was like home cooking and the staff was friendly and also customized our food for a great balance. Price was reasonable and great location to walk around and take in the atmosphere.
