What a restaurant!!!! Started with a uniquely delicious Carpaccio, moved on to a "melt in your mouth" Schnitzel, and tried a JUMBO SHRIMP from my mother-in-law's dish. Everything was freshly prepared and delicious!!!!

Opened since 2002.

Visit us and enjoy a unique experience.

We want to offer you the best from our menu with particular taste, mixing the best from two worlds: porteno flavours with the culinary culture from Germany.

It's pretty easy to find us in town, one block north the cruise ship terminal.

IMPORTANT: Due to vacations the restaurant will be closed between June 2nd and July 13th, 2017.
