“Good old-fashioned style food and atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2014

We were able to dine in the outdoors area (had a group of 7). It was very busy and reservations are recommended. The food was good - it was asparagus season and the portion of asparagus served with the meals was great. It is very traditional, so expect a traditional meal (decent size portions). If you are looking for nouveau cuisine, this is not the place for you.
The restaurant itself is beautiful and authentic. It is worth a walk through.
My only complaint was dessert - although there is a large selection, when I asked about ingredients due to a food allergy, the server indicated that she needed to check on the "box". I would have expected locally made or restaurant made dessert instead of dessert that may have been purchased in a store. I would advise asking which desserts were made in-house - likely the mousse and the strudel are made in-house.

We enjoyed a good lunch on a nice patio with great service. Reasonable prices, clean, and good variety on the menu for all tastes. Also good brew selections!

“== mixed feelings ==”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014

We ate in the formal dining room, a lovely spot with wonderful helpful down-to-earth servers.

The 'Gasthaus pan' isn't worth it: four different kinds of meat of which only the smoked pork was good. The rest was dried out, even the sausage. The Kassler rib (smoked pork chop) was quite good. The spinach salad was great, and very large, enough for two or even three.

The rest of the food was average, except for the Wiener schnitzel which was quite tasty but somewhat dry. Overall, not very good but average. The food doesn't live up to the service or very nice room.

There's a good selection of wines, served at the correct temperature.

“dropped in for lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014

We have been to this restaurant in the past for supper and had a wonderful meal. we were walking past and dropped in for lunch and again was very good. I am gluten intolerant so go through the menu with a fine tooth comb and a lot of items were fine. I even got to enjoy a nice Belgian GF beer to top it off on an extremely hot afternoon. I was quite pleased!
