I tend to take pals here off season, because I know tourists like it and they bore me. While big enough, the outdoor seating ''under the linden tree'' is really where you want to be if the weather is decent. Prices are reasonable, with good...More

Delicious food served in a lovely old garden restaurant. The garden dining offers a respite from the city and the authentic recipes were amazing. The amount of food was far more than we could eat and was a tremendous value for the money. Seek this...More
