Dined here on a weeknight around 8pm. The restaurant was pretty deserted as only 6 other tables were taken. We made reservations in advance based on rave TA reviews. The ravioli as was very good but the rack of lamb was exceptional, some of the best we've had.The food was great but what was wrong was the service. Our server... More

I have eaten at the restaurant twice on business trips and I have to say this is quite simply the best restaurant I have ever eaten at! Everything from the ambience of a place that oozes German yesteryear charm, to the excellent, punctual but not excessive service to the most divine food made the experience an absolute a joy. It...

Superb restaurant. Excellent food and wine although the menu was limited. Outstanding service. I think you would have to book a table.

Heidelburg, albeit a charming university town, is not known for its cuisine. Weisser Bock is the proverbial needle in the hay stack here. What an outstanding meal my family and I had here. Starting out with a wonderfully flavored, canape of tuna tartare, we then followed with what may be the best soup I have ever tasted in my short... More

With a nod to Michael Winner, we had an historic pea soup with scallop (it really was that good) as our starter at this lovely little restaurant tucked away from but close to the main drag in Heidelberg. The weiner schnitzels (2 each per person so wear your elasticated waisted trousers) were also very good indeed. The knowledgeable staff helped... More

I had the best meal of my trip at this lovely little restaurant. It is incredibly atmospheric, and the food, wine, and service were great. Highly recommended.

After a very poor experience at Zum Spreisel we decided give the Weisser Bock a try - and what a good decision it was. Yes, it is a bit tucked away but it is located on a very picturesque road in the Heidelberg Altstadt. The restaurant is old, beautiful and authentic. The service was oustanding and friendly and the wait... More

This is a wonderful little restaurant near the Church of the Holy Spirit in the old part of Heidelberg. The food is excellent and the dining atmosphere is elegant but relaxing. There are always interesting selections on the menu, which has a nice variety, and the wait staff is very attentive and helpful; most speak English. This is where we... More

Went to this restaurant on recommendation from a German friend and it didn't disappoint. However, it did take quite a while to place our order and have the wine brought to us but aside from those small points the evening was a delight. We sat outside on the pavement (some tables were labelled reserved but that didn't seem to stop... More
