Insides of the pub look very nice and the service is generally fine. However, if you are interested in good beer I do not recommend this place. The day we visited this bar they served four types of beer: helles (they call it “normal” beer),...More

Original german food, large portions and nice quality. Prices are ok, service is a bit slow. Reservation is needed at rush hours, although the place is huge, we had a difficult time finding a table for 8 persons.

The ideal time to eat here is a sunny day so that you can sit outsside. My dish is the Grillhaxe which is consistenly very good. Combine this with their beer test (4 of their brews), and you are guaranteed a good time.

We were ther with a group of 10 business persons on a very hot evening. Booking was lost. We were seated behind the entrance wall of the washing-up room. The whole evening we had the dusty smell of the trash cans with food rests.
