Nice place off the square to stop for lunch. Service was quick and the food was very tasty. Mostly German items on the menu but they did offer hamburgers and veggie burgers as well. Atmosphere inside was very pleasant.

The argentinian steak is the best of the menu, the rest is cheap, low quality food. Bier is fantastic though, so are the spirits. More of a drinking place than a good cuisine.

The venue - great. The historic decoration of the restaurant - impressive. The food was somewhat bland and run-of-the-mill. Stick with beer and pretzels -you cant go wrong with that.

The food at Knochenhauer Amtshaus is excellent, especially the 'Bratkartoffeln' are deliciously crisp.
