Germany is not famous for its kitchen (cars are far more appreciated!), but this place may change your mind. Good food served in a warm and comfortable place. I'll be back as many time as possible.

The restaurant is amazingly decorated. The food is great. Excellent meat for all tastes. The service is very attentive. Clean restaurant. It also has a night pub called "Chase" whose visitors are usually grown-ups. There's always great mood in the place. Utterly recommended.
