excellent kitchen, good service

We were unable to get into Simplicissimus because they were booked. So we took their suggestion to try this restaurant, and happy we did. We were a business party of 5. Very well prepared German food, but not heavy German. Service was good. Only negatives were having to walk through bar area that... read more

While the food and wine was good, what made this for me was the very friendly, smiling and attentive service despite the restaurant being very busy. Recommended.

We normally don’t write any reviews but in this case I thought it’s worth it. My husband and I dined at Oscar’s last Saturday and it was the best meal we’ve had in Germany so far, if not on our entire trip. The food was exceptionally delicious and the waitress was very attentive and helpful. Great wine list with superb... More

I had dinner more than 10x here and was never disappointed. Surprising flavors and overall excellent experience. Service has always been outstanding and a good selection of wines including local vines from the area. Absolutely recommended!!!

We come here every time we are in town. They have locally sourced food in all of their dishes and everything tastes fantastic. They typically offer multi-course menus (one with meat, one with fish) as well as a la carte including vegetarian options. The staff is really great and helpful with special dietary needs and wine pairing recommendations. Overall, as... More

Very impressed when the starter arrived, good, fresh flavours...however, the main course was average and the desert poor...a shame because the food here has the potential to be very good. Service was good though.

You sure have to try the wine here! They have a large selection and will recommend you German wines too - they're from the region and delicious. The food is nice as well, and you can get a three or four course menu for around 35€.

Wonderful place in the middle of the wonderful Old Town. Cosy, classy, stilish, full of good people. The food is amazing, expect an explosion of flavor and things that you have never tasted before in that combination. I had the sea-fish-menu and was impressed! And it is not easy to impress me. The wine was excellent as well. For the... More

Don't even bother going if you don't have reservations. We went there on a Monday evening, party of 2, before 7 pm, the restaurant was completely empty, but the waiter told us that they had no place since we had no reservations. And she was quite rude. Maybe it is a cultural issue, but being a tourist city, they should... More

This is one of the Heidelberg restaurants that I consistently recommend to friends or meet up with them there. I have enjoyed dinner over the past couple of years and never had a bad meal. There is also a wonderful wine list to match. The service is always friendly and accommodating. I highly recommend enjoying a meal here.
