Food Review:

The food here is 'American' in style, but it is not a total success. While the food is good and very enjoyable, I think it would be fair to say that Americans expecting the usual US fare will be disappointed. The menu has Burgers, Ribs, etc all served with fries / salads, various salads and sandwiches. There is also an excellent value set menu for 119FF for 3 courses. All three of us had the set menu. We all selected the Chicken and Corn soup, very thick and creamy if a touch salty. I had Salmon with Rice and Vegetables, the others had a large Salad with mixed meats and Ribs with fries. We all had the Cherries in Kirch with Vanilla Ice Cream for dessert. The food was very good, hot and tasty.

Service Review:

The service was patchy, one server being excellent the other poor. Overall it was acceptable, we were served quickly and the order was correct.

Atmosphere Review:

The style of the restaurant is that of an up market New York Diner, and it really works. Large paintings of American breakfasts and desserts grace the walls. The kitchen is an open design so you can watch the people at work.

Other Comments:

A nice place to eat away from the busy park. This is a small and cozy place that gets very full, make a reservation. The same menu is served at lunchtimes in the Manhattan restaurant next door (see my review)
