Some of the worst customer service I’ve ever had in Europe. Waited way too long for order. Beer came out dead and with no foam.

Centrally located and quite touristy place with decent but not the best food. Huge portions. Bad wine but all in all not very expensive.

Combination of very poor contributions to this genuine 1* review, as follows: - Arrived and requested a table for 2, beyond which we were shoe-horned into a table right next to the entrance to the outside eating area. This meant having the queuing guests literally...standing over you whilst you try and converse / drink / eat. - After 10 minutes of waiting a single menu was delivered to the table - unnecessary and awkward to use / share whilst sitting opposite one another. Waiter then returned to take a combined drinks / food order, and appeared disappointed when we had only picked drinks and requested a 2nd menu so that we could browse the food options with standard ease. More time between a 2nd menu arriving and the order being taken passed. Food order finally placed 30 minutes after being seated. - 2x starters (Goulash & Tomato soups) then took over half an hour to arrive. We were on the verge of leaving as they arrived. Taste was excellent, but both were merely warm and certainly not hot. They must’ve been sat there waiting for some time. - 2x mains arrived another half an hour later. Now we were in no rush, but to receive a main meal over 1 hour and 30 minutes after arriving is ridiculous. Again, we were on the verge of departing and the food arrived. It’s as if they knew! The German sausage / meatballs combo were ok, if nothing special… until… - RATS!!!! We were sat next to some ‘flower beds’ and the square of general dirt I guess(?) for my wife to notice a rat sitting within the beds literally staring at us eating, less than a meter away! We then watched a couple of rats scurry around in very close proximity with eyes on the food. Off putting to say the least. …at this stage we gave up mid-main course and decided to leave. The waiter said sorry, that they’re aware, and that he’d tell his manager… but why seat paying guests there if they’re aware?! Waiter had the cheek to huff at no tip also. Truly abysmal experience - wouldn’t dream of returning and certainly wouldn’t recommend to anybody! AVOID.More

The service was excellent just as the location. Unfortunately the food was really poor. The food was preheated and really basic (simple tomato sauce on the sausage). For the food I wouldn't recommend this place.

This is what i'd call a typical German restaurant, serving typical German food. I'm not a pork eater, and there's lots of pork on the menu, but there are other options, I had the salmon and my wife the chicken (but with a jacket potato,...not chips as advertised on the menu. And of course, great beer and a good selection of wine. Our waiter was excellent and an entertainer, but I could see that not all his colleagues were as congenial. It’s not the cheapest around, but not too expensive either, definitely worth a visiMore

Family friendly restaurant with a great menu. We enjoyed it so much we came back for a second visit. Service was excellent, reasonably priced and the crispy pork knuckle was everything you could want from a German restaurant. Highly recommend

A nice place and central. The beer and cocktails were good. Currywurst had been precooked and was basically just a tomato sauce, the hamburger meat was tastless. The service was quick. All in all not bad but there are plenty of other places to try.More
