Horrible service from a very inept waiter. When the food still had not arrived after an hour, went to inquire and they had not even started it yet.

The fish was perfectly cooked and the eisbein excellent (but involved quite a wait). We had some special dietary requirements and all were catered for with no fuss. What really made the experience was the staff - they were professional, friendly, gracious and helpful.

After so many years in the business, one sometimes wants to throw in the towel and go do something completely different. Reviews like this recharge the batteries. Thank you.
