Strange to find a typically german restaurant (Biergarten) in Italy. The first impression was unfortunately confirmed. Enormous quantities of food but the quality is debatable. The main issue however, is the noise and the hectics of this place which seems to specialise on group of...More

Worst dining experience of our 1-weekstay in Trieste. Very expensive for what we got. Total lack of atmosphere. There are far better options available close by in the direction of the city centre.

Good beers, good located. Nice staff, the food is nothing special to me, but it's not bad. Prices are a little bit high.

Big German beerhall style place. The food and beer were both very good, and service fine. It was nice to see a good range of German style beers, served in ceramic mugs if you go for the 0.5 litre size. The atmosphere was OK, but...More

This is around the corner from our hotel. We went once and then came back again. The sausage and sour kraut dish was excellent. The potatoe and cheese baked dish was the best scalloped potatoes I ve ever had. Service is so prompt. All servers...More
