After a long day at the exhibition, it was a lovely welcoming place. Wonderful steak, salad and potatoes. Wine and crepe to finish. We all enjoyed every bite. Recommended!

The restaurant is very warm and cozy decorated. The atmosphere is very rustic as the place use to be the old town hall of lauf (1546) The service was very friendly and efficient. I definitely recommend this restaurant.

Not fine dining but a fun and traditional restaurant. The building is quite special (town hall). The service were always very kind to our noisy children and were happy to switch between German and English when needed.
