I came upon this restaurant by chance and I'm very glad I did! It's very popular, always quite full; the service is very nice and quick, and the portions are big and the meals delicious!

There is a special offer between 18.00-19.00 and 22.30-23.30. You can eat spaghetti bolognese for a very affordable price. And it tastes good.

Brennessel is more of a student restaurant where, it seems, that the younger generation is mostly found. Their menu is quite substantial and their prices are very reasonable. The beer is amazing. I tend to order the schnitzel dishes which they offer and I have...More
