The food was just ok but not fantastic. The supposedly homemade Spätzle are soft and tasteless. the salads were super salty and not edible. The schnitzel, the wurstsalat, the maultaschen and the Hirschgulasch were ok. Just average.More

The food is above average and the menu contains local specialties and other non standard dishes, like snail for example. The atmosphere is also good. For children there is not much choice if they do not like spaghetti or flam kuchen. No Schnitzels here!
