Great location just off the main square. Sat out on Haupstrasse with great people watching. The front of the menu is German and the back is English. Had the pork medallions in mushroom sauce that was top notch. Really friendly waitress and good service. Good selection of local beer and wine. Really big portions too. Bill came out to about...

I love this place! Every time I'm in Heidelberg I make it a point to at least get a kellerbier at this establishment! The schweinehaxe is the best I've ever had and the beer is fresh, beautiful, and cold! The venue itself is very cool for dinner, then late at night it turns into a pretty happening nightspot!

We had a brilliant meal here with excellent, friendly service and superb food. We treated ourselves to the Argentinian fillet steak and it was gorgeous. I like mine well done and my other half likes his medium, and both turned out tender, juicy and done just right. Loved the banter with the waitress who’d spent a year in Birmingham, too.... More

We went with a fairly large group for lunch. What was ordered were the not so little rectangles that contained meat [finely ground] with veggies, that were eaten during lent to circumvent the meat ban. As I said they were like bricks, not that they weren't good, just very heavy. Since we were such a large group the service started... More

We couldn't be seated at the top-rated restaurant, so walked around the corner and peered in. The decor is an old ski chalet. The staff was very welcoming and helpful (until they got busy, when they became a bit overstretched). Had a pork knuckle! Could have fed all 5 of us, but still quite yummy. They were good with the...

A great place on the main street of the old town - big tables, friendly, helpful staff, good food. The waitress even advised the dish I was trying to order as starter was actually big enough for a mains!

Surprise to find such good place in busy area. Of course crowded. Be prepared to sit with strangers at your table, but that is the way it works. Prices reasonable, as well as the food. For groups (4 and over), one should make a reservation.

Seems to be a very popular place, and is a little noisier than some might prefer. You sit wherever you can, and sharing tables is entirely expected. I had the good luck to sit beside a pleasant German couple who spoke good English. They were quite satisfied with their dishes, especially a crispy-skin pig knuckle, a staple of German cuisine....

I have been going here for food and drink for 10 years and this place has never missed a beat. Great Traditioanl German Food!! The bar is great with an incredible atmosphere!! It has a very dark Rathskeller kind of feel to it.
