This pretty restaurant might look like it serves dainty food, but your partner (and you) might be glad to know that the menu features hearty authentic German food like Crispy Pork Knuckle and Pretzel Dumplings that will be sure to satisfy your tummies. Across the restaurant, you can enjoy a refreshing glass of German beer at the open-air Daybar and Frieda Garden which is also part of the establishment.
