    Good enough food but service is too bad to fully exploit and enjoy the advertised happy hour. Good for quick meal, guess the owners don't want you spending all your money here!

    Book table especially the ones near the fireplace. Service is slow but we keep coming back. Food is good and they have gluhwein in Winter.

    Nice food and ambiance. SLOW service, we felt waiters forgot our 5-people table way too often.

    The tapas platter shared between four ppl is overrated but ask your waiter to bring pineapple and tabasco with your tequila... The best of both
