It has always been a restaurant with a good relation between cost and quality. The dishes are quite abundant so they can be shared.

- Typical German Restaurant in Buenos Aires. - Good German food and local beer. - The restaurant is big and has many tables, but feels like crowdy when it is full. - Good waiters serving.

When "abundant" dishes are charged 'abundantly', all guest are led to share the same dish. Which is not a great deal, in the end. Nothing amazing or remarkable. Just one more restaurant in BA offering a wide choice of typical German dishes.
