We ordered canapés for lunch. What we got were two slices of french bread, mine with RAW shrimp. I don't like RAW shrimp and asked the waitress if I could change the order.
She then, patronisingly, began to lecture me on what canapés are: something Raw on bread.
She was in her early twenties, I am a mature, food loving, cookbook reading, cooking enthusiast.
Of course canapés can be cold as well as hot and are something savoury on a piece of toast or fried bread, they are usually eaten as an entree.
I wonder who is in the kitchen in the SCHWARZER WALFISH, certainly it can't be a qualified chef not even a well informed cook of any kind, where else did she get her information?

Great selection of breakfast menus. Service is efficient but sometimes a smile is missing. However, this is only a small thing. After all, you are there for the food and to hand out with friends and not to check out the friendliest staff in town.

The Walfisch specialises in breakfast, including the Kater (hangover) breakfast - a coffee, and orange juice and an aspirin. I think the used to be a cigarette, too. ask for the freshly squeezed juice with Sekt - it's not always on the menu. You can idle a few hours away on these and then learn the meaning of regret when the bill arrives. ;)
