...could not resist getting some snacks. Great decision! Gynormous pretzel, great sausage (mit senf!), radish and great bread. Brauhof beer very good. Unfortunately, this establishment, like many others in Europe are using (bluish colored) energy saving bulbs which gives it the ambience of a dentist office waiting room, or a "Golden Corral" back Stateside. Too bad.

We had the christmas dinner and we ate very well, beers also were ok, austrian (good) standard.
The restaurant itself was good looking, clean and well decorated.
Average total bill, satisfying experience overall but...
The minus is the staff: we followed their website indication on reserving but got immediately three mails back, out of which two were an out of office reply. None of them granted us a reserved table, nor any other email was sent.
So we went hoping to find a table and... surprise: there was plenty of tables available and explicitly non-reserved.
The waitress though she spoke english did not try to understand/explain us all the new food for us on the menu, looked very angered and served us with a grin almost "discharging" dishes on the table.
Needless to say, we held back the xmas extra-tip we were about to give: we understand that working on 25/12 must be hard, but this does not justify hostility towards customers.
Such a shame this (impossibile reservation/attitude) spoils the 5/5 to a 3.5/5, that for xmas reasons gets 4/5

I had to ask 2 or 3 times for everything. Staff nodded said they’d be back and then NOTHING for ages. Then I asked again and maybe i’d get it. Flagging staff near impossible. Food was passable 5 out of 10. Do not go here unless you put aside all day for lunch.

Dear Ian!

Sorry that we are fully booked from 28th dezembre to 2th january. every day we also try to give the guests without reservation a free table as soon as possible. Sorry that the waiting time was too long for you.
The next time we recommend you to book a table in advance, then you certainly have time for other activities.

Food was just okay. I had the pork knuckle with potatoes. I wish they had a sauce besides ketchup to make it taste better. Service was just okay too.
