We went here for a quiet mid-week dinner. Though we made reservations, we were only the third occupied table. So it is likely the weekend evenings are the reason for the recommendations to make a reservation. The food was very tasty, served hot and quickly....More

The schnitzel seemed to be deep-fried: tough and dry with little breading. My preference is moist, delicate schnitzel. The potato "pancakes" were similar - very crispy for those who may like deep fry. I have not tried the sauerbraten or other dishes that woulld not...More
