Like so many others we brought our family from Germany to enjoy a wonderful meal on the edge of the nature reserve. The pizzas were lovely as was the eisbein, and the beers were cold.

We had dinner there and though the food and service were average, we had amazing coffee, which is hard to find in Gabs. It even has a special little surprise. Make sure you ask Seabe to make it. The environment is also lovely.
