The steak was as stiff as a shoe :(. Try the fried camaber it was a lot better. The potato soup was extremely salty. You better try the other restaurant near this one - Pfefferkorn's No. 1 am Markt, Markt

The place was packed but we only waited 5 minutes for a seat. Glad we waited as the food was great and the staff were very sociable. Tried their traditional Thier Pils beer and schnitzel. Food didn't take long to come and atmosphere was great....More
