We reserved a table by the window which was nice. Service was excellent as was the food selection. We each had a Schnitzel with different toppings. The red cabbage and spätzle was superb as well. For dessert we shared apple streusel and creme brûlée. We...More

A very small German restaurant. We were lucky to get a table without reservation. Food was very good.
