Very good German food. Great Snitzels, accompanied by nice mescaline salad. Excellent spot but unfortunately it has closed due to the chef's health!

This was an amazing place to eat. Lothar was truly a master chef and I had eaten here lots of times with family and friends but it is no longer open.

Sad to say Lothar's is no more. There's a sign in the window that says that the owner and his lovely wife have retired to tend their garden and manage their bee hives. They are greatly missed.

A great restaurant to give Charlotte Lane some competition! Lothar does add the personal touch with visits to the table and a menu that you wouldn't expect in Shelburne. Nice, simple, classy decor....

Lothar and Annette are great hosts and the food Lothar creates is delicious. An unpretentious place where the hosts take care and great prid in their food and hositality. A Must to visit for lunch or supper.

Chef Lothar and his wife are always welcoming and provide both great food and atmosphere in their cozy dining room. Come for the Spatzl, but save room for an always-fresh Lothar dessert.

We were amazed at how quiet this restaurant was on a weekend night in July, given the excellent quality of the food and pleasant service. We both had the pork special which was delicious and then gateau; a perfect combination. The chef came out for a chat after our meal. I would strongly recommend Lothar's to anyone staying in Shelburne!

The quality of the food, the interest of the chef and his staff (family). One of the "fine dining" experiences Shelburne has on offer. Just a pity that Lothar is unable to provide limproved opening hours

Lothar is a very good chef and we've enjoyed every meal we've had here. The service is good and both he and his wife are very friendly. The ambiance is lacking,however, and more colour in the restaurant would add to the atmosphere.
