I work in Heidelberg and have tried most of the restaurants and pubs over the years. There are many and mostly of a high standard. I use this establishment the most because they do a meal that I particuarly like: fresh Salmon, German fried potatoes, and salad preceded by potatoe soup. However, I've had other meals there and have eaten... More

Had a very good dinner here with my wife and two children, ages 18 and 14. Nice location at the Old Bridge.

Prices were reasonable and... More

We sat out in front of the restaurant with a great view of the Heidelburg Bridge. The food and drink were excellent. One of the owners is Greek so there are some Greek dishes on the menu. As it got cold that night they came out with blankets and we finished watching the world cup game.

Don't be misled by other reviews. While attached to the Holander Hof Hotel with a lot of tourist traffic this is home style German cooking. Maria and Peter are your hosts and you can feel the their touch. Went midweek and service was fine. Had two types of wurst and some of the best home fries ever. Warm , cozy... More

Located next in the picturesque Altstadt of Heidelberge and next to the old bridge, you can't ask for a more perfect and pleasant location. It was a beautiful evening and we had a nice table on their outside terrace. The service was very pleasant and the waitress was helpful and menu's were available in English too. Where it all went...

located in the Old Town section and conveniently located by the Old Bridge. All 4 in our party were very happy with meals. We had 2 Weiner Schnitzels (a little dry), Aota (a stuffed turkey schnitzel...YUM), and a liver meatball entrée (not mine but was good nevertheless). Enjoyed the outdoor seating. We were one of the few tourists there as... More

Came across this restaurant by chance. Looked at the menu and thought we would give it a try. Not expecting too much considering the position in the tourist end of the old bridge. Such a surprise. Lovely friendly welcome. Great food and the meals are large making them very good value as well. Came back and looked up the reviews.... More

Had a great meal here. Right next door to Hollander Hof hotel right by the main bridge in old town, so very convenient.

We almost missed finding this place, because the sign that says Zum Spreisel is inconspicuous compared to the Hotel Hollande Hopf sign. Charming cobbled courtyard, plenty of shade, helpful servers. If you go in asparagus ('Spargel') season, get one of those specials. I wish this place were open for lunch, but it is not.
