Myself and girlfriend had just arrived in the city, hungry and thirsty and after being greeted with a small cold beer quickly we ordered the bratwurst and potatoes... it was gorgeous. Nice place and location for a lunch/dinner in nice weather.

We came here to try their Sauerbraten after the disappointment at another restaurant by the Cathedral. This time it was tasty, as was everything we had. Our waiter was excellent also, speedy, attentive and friendly.
