We really liked the food. It was fresh and prepared only after we ordered. It also looked nice and the waitress was very friendly. We can highly recommend that place, especially considering the prices!

As I'm so picky with food, but this one is definitely must try. Simple but super tasty food. Love that they got dishes with meat substitutes. Also they got outside seats, cosy atmosphere. And lovely Haidi will assist you with beautiful smile!!!
