Went there by casuality as the one next door could not understand what gluten free means. And gosh how lucky we were! The restaurant has seats inside and in a garden. As the weather was hot, we opted for the garden. Waitresses make you like at home. Smiling and pro. Anything from the menu looked good and we selected meat.... More

Great food, great service, I'd definitely recommend for business and casual dining. Lots of wine choice and accompanying finger food - had a cheese plate and filled avocado

This restaurant like Limao is close to the Hotel I stayed at recently for a two week business trip. I visited 4 times in this period and was never disappointed.

I come back to this restaurant every time I am in Bonn. For good reason. Their menu is simple, to the point, and brilliant. And every dish is prepared with care and very high standards. This time I ate here three times. Since it is white asparagus season, I took advantage and ate asparagus every time- in different combinations. With... More

The food in here was great but the chap on the next table (outside) was chain smoking which isn't great when you are trying to eat. The waiter provided an English menu and translated the specials board for me.

Right around the corner from the Hotel Kaiserhof, Monica the waitress/owner's wife and I practiced her English and my German. The food is typical German fare, everything I ate was excellent, and on separate evenings, I had the steak, pork and chicken.
