I ended up here with some of the office friends, late evening. Given the recommendations I ordered a horse steak and a beer. The restaurant looks very local with some cheesy 80s (?) decor and so does the menu, which is a bit shabby. Do not be fooled by the looks though. The horse steak here is superb and you... More

This review is based solely on the service provided at the restaurant I'd previously visited Nachtigall a few years back (2013) and was pretty happy with the experience, so when one of my friends suggested having a Christmas dinner there I volunteered to organize it. December being a busy saison, I made sure to call in six weeks before and... More

Beef from the hot stone, served with 3 different sauces, all great taste and potatoe slices, all was simply best quality. Starter was impressive Tomato/Mozzarella salad, rarely had such a great caprese salad. located nicely, small place, in- and outside seating. I will go back for sure, really liked it

We came with friends for dinner and decided for special meat on the hot stone. Service was very friendly and helpful. The meat tasted excellent and it was a great experience to grill it directly on the hot stone which everybody received on an own plate together with various sauces and potatoes or other side dishes.

That's not a posh place, that's not a fancy place. But the food and the service were really really nice! Grilled veggies are crunchy and soft at the same time, fries are seasoned with a paprika salt and the XXL Wiener Schnitzel was very tender and the bread crumbs well seasoned. Delicious with fresh lemon juice & Quollfrish beer...

Sure, the food is fine. The meat was great. But that's simply what you expect for the price. Minus points for unattentive service and very uncozy ambiente.

The idea of the hot stone meat is great (not new - you can get it at other places too - but it is just nice to have something to do during a meal :-) and you can get other dishes too. But I was disappointed by the quality of the meat - even though I have a beef filet... More

We found an offer in Groupon and tried the hotstone menu. The service was very good and the meat was great, although there was not much place outside and tables were a bit small. Highly recommended, but try to find an offer in Groupon!

Nothing wrong with this establishment. The service is perhaps a bit crude at times. And the meat is good but we've had better. The decor is simple if not even immemorable. However, we've had a great time and would go back. You won't regret going.
