“Be careful”
Reviewed 17 February 2014

We had the same experience as other reviewers. We had booked, but on arrival were told there was no menu, even though there was a menu written on the blackboard outside. It was a set meal of one starter - prawn canelloni, which 2 out of the 5 of us couldn't eat, followed by more prawns or veal steak for main course. The only wine was a bottle of red, no choice and there was no beer or spirits available. The food was actually pretty good but the service, including the chef's, was surly, arrogant and unhelpful. The final insult was to be presented with the bill and then told they only take cash. No tip then! We felt intimidated and not welcome. There are plenty of places as good if not better to eat in Nuremberg. This is one to cross off your list

“Be careful”
Reviewed 23 April 2012

Lovely little restaurant however please be careful as we feel we were fleeced. We entered the restaurant without making a reservation. The owner came to us and informed us that he didnt have a menu and that his restaurant only served a set three course meal consisting of the main course being linguenie and that it was 26 euro each. This sounded lovely and to be honest the food was very good however we ordered a bottle of Chianti of which the owner said he only had the reserve, we accepted this. The waiter bought over a bottle of water and the wine. We ate the three courses given (very good presentation) and asked for the bill. We were shocked to see that the wine had been charged at 48 euro for the bottle, 1.50 euro for the water (which wasn't ordered ) and the total bill came to over 100 euro !! We put it down to experience and produced a credit card to pay. The owner then told us he only accepted cash no cards at all and informed my husband where they nearest cash point was.
We felt a little duped by this as on the business card inside the restaurant there is visa and mastercard signs.

“Absolutely dissapointing”
Reviewed 8 August 2011

We went to this restaurant based on the good reviews on tripadvisor and when we arrived a lot of people were in the restaurant wich is normally a good sign,.... The menu is very basic and we could not even order a regular bottle of wine. In stead we got 50cl wine in a water glass??? We ordered Spaghetti Bolognese. No bread was served.
Before we got our main course 2 extra persons were put on our table.... what resaurant does that.... The Spaghetti was very very al Dente and the meat sauce was really bad. We only managed to eat half of it.
Stay away of this resaurant!
