Fantastic location next to the Munster. Ate outside- meals were very good local dishes. The local brew- Ganter wheat beer is one of the best I found in Germany. Wonderful clove notes. I want some here at home! Good service and the prices were reasonable.

The food was really good, so was the location and general atmosphere of this place facing the cathedral. We very much enjoyed our time. When we asked for the bill, the waitress (whose full name and surname were on the bill...) asked if we wanted to add a tip. We declined thinking if want to we can always leave change,like... More

"Essen ?"... "Trinken ?" ..... strange waitresses; do they have a German language problem ? Ordering sirloin steak; nobody asked how we wanted them cooked ? Luckily, the kitchen can read minds and a perfect medium-rare steak came. So 10 points for the kitchen; 3 for the service personnel.

Very nice brewery/restaurant ideally located in the center of Freiburg near the cathedral. It serves excellent Schwarzwald specialties with large portions at a very reasonable price. Service is also great. I recommend this restaurant when visiting the city!

No pretense. Simple and tasty typical German food that is served in abundance. The service is prompt and professional. The red wine is excellent. A whole meal for two people plus a generous glass of red wine and two large beers came to 60 euros service included. We really had our fill.

In the shadow of the cathedral, you could expect a bit of the 'St Marks Square' syndrome for such restaurants, particularly as when we approached the service staff were traditionally dressed. Luckily for us they had an English menu (albeit with an American flag on it!!) Schnitzel jumped out at us, and the price was reasonable, so three of us... More

Backed by a stall selling bird whistles and another selling every type of brush imaginable, we find this great restaurant, with a huge terrace sheltered by umbrellas and a cosy interior. At a shaded outside table, we are refreshed with Aperol spritz, a summer drink. I enjoy a local favourite, schnitzel, which in Germany is almost always made of pork,... More

I ate at this restaurant with friends several times during a week long stay in this wonderful city. The staff were friendly and eager to help. Their cream soups were excellent - hot with the biggest dollops of cream I've seen. Not good for chloresterol but I wasn't bothered for this week! The cream of horseradish soap was excellent. They...

I thoroughly enjoyed eating at this place. We had reserved a table - absolutely essential during December which was nicely tucked away in a warm cosy corner of the restaurant. We were immediately offered a choice of English or German menus. If you don't speak German, you need to be aware that the "Specials" menu is not translated though. If... More
