We liked it so much, we went back again

Our hotel recommended this restaurant to us and we looked the look of it - near the Old Bridge along the river, but not crowded with lots of tourists. The owner waited on us and made recommendations and we enjoyed the food, the drinks and the experience. We were staying only 2 nights in... read more

Walked here from my hotel on a dark November evening. Cozy & comfortable, with charming décor. But the best thing was the delicious food. I was so full at the end, as I didn't want to leave a single bite behind. See photos. Waitress was efficient & spoke English (she was business-like & did not contribute to the warm ambiance... More

We stumbled on to zum Spreisel, just up the street from our hotel an right at the foot of the old bridge in Heidelberg. Ducking in out of the rain, we found a dark and cozy cellar-like atmosphere clearly more suited for locals than for tourists--perfect given how our day had gone. Service was courteous (they've got an English menu... More

Sitting on the terras outside enjoying the great view we loved the food that comes out the citchen. The menu is hand-written but over a local beer you will figure it out. The service is good as well. Well worth my 5-stars.

This place was a bit of a surprise. The place is certainly quaint looking, but is also verging a little on being more like a pub. (There was, in fact, a large group of men drinking.) The American songs playing in the background didn't add to the atmosphere. (Why, in Europe, does there seem to be an obsession with 80's... More

We ate Sunday lunch outdoor. The service did start a bit rough, but got better and even friendly. The food is the average German food. We had asparagus, very good, Schnitzel, OK, and Bratwurst, good. For a tourist main area the place is OK.

This restaurant serves excellent roast goose! Its handwritten menu reads like a journal - one dish per page. If we weren't so set on having the goose for dinner, we would have had a hard time selecting our main course from the list of dishes so tantalizingly described. Drop by if you're in the mood for non-typical German fare created... More

Zum Spreisel offers good German food in a Aldstadt setting. The menu is extensive and varied. We tried the Weiner Schnitzel, snails, roast, and their Greek dish (one of the owners is Greek). Service was friendly and decent even with hordes of tourists overflowing the tables. And the prices were quite reasonable, especially in light of the quantity.
