Amazing food, and a terrific location. The goat cheese appetizer was magnificent. Great wine list. The schnitzel I had was almost as good as anything I had in 4 years of living in Germany. Very relaxing setting, and the adjacent wine bar is great as...More

Excellent food, modest portions, friendly waitstaff. The ambience is quite nice. They offered children's menu and even that food was good.
