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.

Four of us visited this restaurant and were shown into a room to the left away from the main room so unfortunately we couldn't get an idea of atmosphere as we were the only ones sitting there! We ordered three bowls of tomato soup, one onion, unfortunate manner by the lady who took the order. Small bowls, onion soup was... More

Went here twice in 3 days. Once for dinner, and once for dessert. It was the best home made german food I had on the trip (7 days travelling). It really felt home cooked with lots of flavour and massive dishes. The staff was very easy going and friendly. They seem to care about what they are doing. Little bit... More

Very extensive English menu (the German menu is even larger!), with many regional specialties. I have tried a different regional specialty dish each visit, and have not been disappointed. Be sure to try the pumpkin soup when it is season as it is quite good. The restaurant has a beautiful wooden interior and antique windows.
