Friendly staff, nice and small place, just make sure you have a reservation or you’ll have to wait for a table.

The mixed ribs dish was abount 25 EUR and a small glass of Pepsi Max was around 3 EUR. It's not cheap but not overly expensive. You can have a main dish and 2 drinks for ~35 EUR including tip.
