I went with a business group to this restaurant on 5/19 and we were promptly seated. The DJ for some reason thought the music was never loud enough and he kept turning up little by little. Even being half deaf, it was way too loud to enjoy a meal and any hopes of normal conversation. We found ourselves practically yelling... More

Great place to go for a pint of beer. Food is basic and good fare for a reasonable price. Enjoy the sports on the big screens

The food was tasty and of good portion size. On the other hand, their tapas were quite expensive for what you get. Service was friendly and a little slow. The overall atmosphere was good. Will come again.

I had a wonderful wheat beer and a plate of goulash. Both were excellent. The wheat beer was thirst quenching and very drinkable. The goulash tasty and very filling.

This is a good place but unfortunately the bigger area is reserved for smokers. The non-smoking area is moreless empty without any music...and you you have to wait for quite some time for the waiter :-(

Really modern/funky design. Only ate there twice but it was very good. It's times. IT was a little pricy for what it was, but the atmosphere is nice, and the service prompt. Great place to go have a drink. In summer there is a beer garden which is lovely.

Were there twice with my family. Ordered Wienna steak and were very disapointed. Wait too long to serve us, steak was some kind sweet, not even close wienna steaks I ate in Italy, Slovenia, Croatia, Germany, Swiss.

Very busy and too smoky in winter. The summer outdoor area improves things. Food is simple and ok. Home made beers and long high tables make for good socialising.

We were a group of 20 people in a business trip., some Europeans, others from the US. Our local office recommended this restaurant and we were pleasantly surprised. There was a Xmas market in Hauptplatz, so the taxis left us there and we walked towards the restaurant, while enjoying the market (and the hot alcoholic cider it had to offer!).... More
