I loved the atmosphere as well as the incredibly delicious food. This is a very small restaurant but it is big on customer service.

Loved the chicken casserole with spaetzle and the cozy ambience, especially on a grey October day. Service was prompt.

What a surprise. Here is the quinessential European restaurant. I mean, this is the real thing. If you like Germanic food done right, at a reasonable price this is the place. The chefs dress like chefs, the staff are friendly and the owner keeps it...More
