Thrilled by the menù and the location, we decided to try it. We opened the door and without a "Good evening" this rude jung waiter just shortly said "We are full". An asian lady saw us and she offered her table since she was about to leave. We asked again to the waiter (the jung waiter) if we could seat... More

Staff friendly, food very disappointing sorry to say. Was hoping for the 'wow' factor since the restaurant is one of two in Lonely Planet and on Trip Advisor. Didn't get it. After sending the steak back once the second effort was equally tough. It's not that difficult to make a nice tender sirloin. Was Christmas day so excuses could be... More

We ate the Wiener Snitzel from pork and the Zauner strudel. Both delicious and in good quantities. We also had one glass of wine each. FYI, they charge 1,9€ per person for service (like for cutlery and the bread they put as appetiser). The waiters were very nice and helpful, speaking both german and english. We recommend for a nice,... More

I went to this restaurant on recommendations from bloggers. Could be due to my high expectation, I was frankly disappointed with the schnitzel as it did not really excite my taste buds. The food is not awful, but I just don't feel the buzz. Maybe it happened that I did not order their flagship dishes. Anyway, one of the customer... More

We went to the restaurant without reservation around 11:30am and the restaurant was full at 12:10pm on Friday. We followed the recommendation of the great staff and had excellent Lake fish and stake. We enjoyed the food in the place with long history. It's a lovely place I would like to visit again.

We stopped by for lunch and ordered pork Wiener Schnitzel with potatoes and cranberries and chicken with curry, fruit sauce, rice and vegetables. We also ordered two glasses of red wine that was actually good. Chicken dish had a lot of potential and great flavors, but it was a too salty. Schnitzel dish was good quality pork, but the breeding... More

The tray combo dish was excellent! We were very happy with our orders. The trout was also good. I just wish the Chinese travelers learn some travel etiquette. They were so noisy which disrupts the whole eating experience for people in restaurants. At some point I had to tell the their tour manager to tell them to keep the noise... More

The evening started out bad and went downhill from there. The service was outright terrible. We waited over 20 minutes to order, and not for lack of trying. I flagged down one waiter who saw me, nodded acknowledgment, then proceeded to serve another two tables and take another table's order. Completely ignored. I flagged another waiter who simply said that... More
