We had the angus filet, it was amazing. There is a broad selection of good wines and the panakota as dessert was excellent. The ambience is very nice and the service is amazing. we will come back again.

Surprisingly good around a boring typical German cuisine. Rich wine list with a surprise of red Margalit wine from Israel, it is not obvious and common in every fine restaurant Good and professional service Recommend!!!

I was taken here by a friend for a major birthday celebration in the family. The food (all four courses) was excellent. The service was a bit slow... this is a statement of fact, not a complaint, since we had lots of time and spent 3 hours there. The staff are friendly. All in all, it was a nice experience.... More

I had the small menu which consisted of 5 smallish courses of deliciously tasty and varied food, ranging from crab bisque with beetroot foam, beef cooked 3 ways, slow braised beef cheekies (yep, that's what it said on the menu) to a delicious fresh orange crème brûlée. The service... More
