Most dissapointing experince in a long time. Service was exceptionaly bad. We had to wait for 30 minutes to get some drinks and another 2h for our food. The waitress was rude and very unhelpful. Food was ok at best and pricey. Never coming back.

It took more than 2.5h until we received the food on a saturday evening. The water glasses were removed without asking whether we wanted more water. It is not entirely the waitresses fault, the overall organization in the restaurant was bad.

That's not a posh place, that's not a fancy place. But the food and the service were really really nice! Grilled veggies are crunchy and soft at the same time, fries are seasoned with a paprika salt and the XXL Wiener Schnitzel was very tender...More
