I fancied some good German food and the chance to watch Bayern Munich playing Barcelona on the TV. The hotel recommended the Gasthaus Alt-Berlin. I should have realised when I arrived that I had made a mistake. The place had few customers and the waiter (owner) insisted I chose what I wanted to eat before he would let me sit down. The menu was unimaginative and expensive. I chose bratwurst and a beer, a small beer. Well, the beer came quite quick (it was a medium sized beer). The food came about 20 minutes later - dry sausages swimming in overcooked sauerkraut and potatoes. I ordered a second small beer, and this time I got a big one. I pointed this out but was confronted with "I don't understand?" I left most of the food and most of the beer. An elderly couple from one of the scandinavian countries came in and tried to understand the menu. The waiter was really rude to them. I asked if the TV could be switched over from snooker to football. I was told this wasn't possible (I was the only one in the place who could see it). I asked for the bill - 25 euros including 10 euros for the 2 small beers. The waitress made it clear I was expected to leave a tip. I asked to pay by credit card (there's a sign in the window) but was told the bill was too small, they only take cards over 50 euros. I left without a word from the waiter or the waitress. I really wished I'd consulted tripadvisor before I wasted my money.
