Nice restaurant with good food. Friendly service. Fine winelist with a lot of excellent local producers. The restaurant itself is completely oudated. It feels like a former east german restaurant in the sixties. Modernisation is urgent.

This is not a fancy restaurant.....simple/down to earth with good prices. A group of us went for lunch...sat outside by the water....food was good. The staff was very nice and the service was good. We all had an enjoyable lunch and time together.
