I like food. Seriously. I'm also fond of a nice beer. This place is brilliant. The steak, the John Wayne, was superb. We stayed for 3 nights and had the John Wayne twice. 10/10. Also, Sandra the barmaid. 10/10.

Lovely interior, excellent food, good service. We picked this restaurant from trip adviser reviews and asked a local bar maid the best place to eat for traditional German food and she also recommended it. We were not disappointed. Excellent.

The place looks great on the inside; it reminds me of one of those traditional German food pubs that I always loved going to when I lived there. It all started off OK, I ordered a beer and checked that I could use my credit card. I only wanted something fairly light so I ordered one of the salads. I... More
