The setting is interesting - inside or out. the service was patchy but the meals were excellent - well worth a visit. Not your typical German fare, but very much in the German tradition- with a haute cuisine touch. Prices were reasonable for the quality...More

This restaurant is located in an old water works building, and has been very nicely restored to make it a cool place to eat. The food is very good and the service solid, if not spectacular. Nice location along the Main river

Excellent location in a industrial building from 1899. German kitchen; from a Schnitzels to a great steak. Often a changing menu.

Twelve persons, excellent wine, good service, but the food was heavy and uninspired. The church like building next to the MAIN river promises much more.

The atmosphere in this Restaurant is not very nice. Due to the very high ceiling it is very loud. Service was average even for Germany. Food preparation was very good.

atmosphere a bit like a French Brasserie, nice and cosy. The menu is very long in term of pages but somehow relatively limited in term of choice. I took the filet steak which was just perfect, a slight disappointment on the truffle fries where I...More

Our historic pressurised waterworks from the year 1899 protected as a monument offers an extraordinary ambience of culture, art and culinary aspects. Sophisticated German gastronomy, an exquisite selection of wines and spirits and the pleasant charm of the house serve the customer a complete enjoyment for all the senses.


The former machine hall in the neo-Romanesque style with its 2 towers, its own wine cellar as well as a generous outdoor area including a parking lot of its own offers multiple opportunities for impressive events.

As an additional highlight one may enjoy in summer the private beach with genuine Tahiti sand.

In 2009 the pressurised waterworks was selected as the monument of the year and today it serves as an example for successful restorations
