    Incredible cocktails (best remake of G&T I’ve had) and the coolest vibe. The place is spacious and everything about this place is beautiful (even the bathrooms). Def want to go back for their sausages

    The prix fixe menu is really good value. I had the salmon carpaccio, the veal schnitzel and the chocolate ice cream and it was £30. All delicious, served piping hot and big servings. Great service too

    We had a feast of oysters, scallops, duck, cod... Everything was delicious, but what impressed us the most was the freshness of the ingredients and how light those big portions felt in our tummies.

    The best and most German meal you can have is to try one of their Wursts. My favourite is the Kasekrainer, a smoked and grilled cheese pork sausage, Sauerkraut, truffled potato puree and crispy onions

    Gorgeous venue with an amazing service. I was very impressed. It has 2 different floors serving distinct menus. The waiter Chloe is an absolute joy: professional, diligent, social and attentive. ☺️

    A fancy venue with a great atmosphere and very attentive service. Food offering is diverse so you do not feel that you have to go for 100% German food. Head straight for the cocktail bar upstairs

    Excellent, fast, attentive service, tasty food, nicely presented. We went for brunch and then for dinner again. Location is perfect for pre-travel.

    The cocktails are amazing! I tried the Barrel Vault and dare I say that it deserves the award it has won ;)

    Ate in the Grand Cafe which is on the ground floor. Good service from Albert, who was also very chilled out. Good choice if you like huge German beers and sausages. Handy location outside Kings X.

    Amazing ambience and vibe. Wine list is reasonably priced and very good. I only had the cold meat platter which for ten pounds was more than enough. Would definitely go again with a group of friends

    The design of this space is well worth its 2016 Best Designed Restaurant - that being said, cocktails are ok and food is average at best.

    Excellent food and service. The paprika sauce (like a salsa) served with the chicken schnitzel was delicious.

    Absolutely gorgeous space in a highly historic building. Too bad about the ho-hum, uninteresting menu (for the price especially...).

    Not the most traditional German dishes but the sausages are good. Lobster spatzel was a bit of a let down. Bland cucumber salad - we had to salt it ourselves. Wurstsalat was delish!
