Great food, great wine, great service (the best you can get without a Michelin star or Michelin prices)

There are a couple of Michelin star restaurants in the area, but we decided to go to this one instead and were very happy with our decision (it's actually a "bib gourmand" — which means its recommended by Michelin judges for a more budget-conscious eater). The atmosphere isn't too imposing or... read more

5 points for the location, you are in the heart of the old town. it's a pain to park your car if you come on Saturday midday and you didn't reserve your spot at the hotel. So better do so, as we lost 45 min to find a parking place. The hotel was very nice, simple, but clean, room bigger... More

There are two Michelin one-star restaurants in Heidelberg, and this one, which is a bib gourmand. They earned it. The service is superb - they anticipate everything, and stay out of the way. And the food is interesting, extremely well-prepared, and there is enough variety to accomodate vegetarians too (which, alas, cannot be said of the Michelin-starred restaurants). The price... More

We ate with several colleagues and all of us came out quite satisfied. The food is well prepared and served with modern appearance but still very tasty and local. I suggest the pumpkin soup and the duck. If you still have room, try the house dessert mix, it is delicious.

The restaurant food was based on nice products (lie asparagus in season) and everything was tasty, but the prices are high and the restaurant would gain by being a little less

This restaurant is attached to the Gasthaus Backmunde so eating here on our arrival after a long plane trip and a bus ride seemed an easy choice. We are very glad we did. It is no surprise that this restaurant is a Michelin bib as the service and the food were superb. Accomodations for the gluten free diner were no... More

On a business trip I visited Heidelberg. This restaurant is recommended by Michelin (bib Gourmande) and that is for a reason. A traditional Baden Würtemmberg restaurant which serves good honest food and wine. The staff was very friendly. Remarkable was that in the restaurant more people sitting alone at a table (like me) besides some couples and groups. I follow... More

We enjoyed our meal very much. It was more costly than we usually expect, but the menu was very unusual for a Hotel Restaurant. Venison, Blood Sausage etc. Very German. The locals were there, good sign.

Staying at the hotel, I was surprised that this highly rated restaurant was right before my eyes. I reserved a table for dinner. The restaurant is warm and comfortable and traditionally furnished with a limited number of tables. Service was polite, friendly and efficient. The menu was a refreshing approach to traditional cuisine. The wine menu is good and reasonably... More
