Good German food - cozy and friendly.

We had a nice, well prepared, tasty and fairly traditional meal at the Alt Hendesse (with small creative flair sometimes to move the dish above the average). We love the neighborhood, and there are several other excellent restaurants nearby in case the Alt Hendesse is packed full when you arrive... read more

Very cosy, old restaurant. Excellent German food and good selection of wine. There is also an outdoor patio in the back.

I am tired of low quality, "German" food. This is authentic and excellent, but at a reasonable price! I ate here several times and it was always good. I like that they carry what is locally in season and typical for whatever time of year you are in town.

This is a nice restaurant, you can sit outside and enjoy some nice food (although service is not really the best), but the opening hours are very limited!! Do not expect to have lunch there. From Monday to Saturday, it opens only at 5pm. Mo-Sa 17-24 Uhr Sonn- und Feiertags 11-24 Uhr

I've found this nice restaurant through Tripadvisor, and it was a great suggestion! It is located in a quiet and suggestive area in the north of Heidelberg, a bit far from the main touristic routes, but very nice. The restaurant has cosy rooms and a very nice garden (hope to come in summer!). The food is very good: I've taken... More

We visit Alt Hendesse every time we go to Heidelberg. It is one of the best German meals I've had! It is a very relaxed atmosphere in a quiet part of town. On street parking is free and easy to find. Even though their menu is not in English the waiters are very helpful and most speak English very well.... More

Excellent atmosphere and food ! I recommend Rielsing House wine, Snail soup (schneckensuppe) and pork steak with pepper sauce (pfefferschwein). You should end with Raspberry Schnaps! Worth every Euro !

I ate here while in Heidelberg recently. I was staying at a nearby hotel and looked up restaurants in the area when I discovered that I was only five blocks away from Alt Hendesse. It is like going back in time. There are only 8 tables in the front area of the restaurant, but in nicer weather there is a... More

I've been coming here for 16 years now, firstly as a penniless student and now with my children and friends. It's unrivaled for good - strictly male - service, so mums enjoy that. And the food is really Badish (local), with our favourite: rumpsteak with snail sauce. There are lots of good local wines to be had in large glasses.... More
