Charming Heidelberg

We stayed at the hotel above the restaurant, clean and spacious. Our breakfast was included and served in a cramped but clean area. Food was ample and the staff was very helpful. Love the fact that we could walk to bridge after the day trippers left.Other restaurants in area were up to the same... read more

Definately a lovely quaint restuarant and hotel conveniently located just off the medieval bridge. Excellent German cuisine and the perfect place to relax after hiking up and down the hills of Heidelberg! The staff is courteous and all speak English. They are very good at helping you with menu recommendations and we always have a wonderful time when dining there.... More

Descending the hill from the castle in Heidelberg, we hit the TripAdvisor app to find a good place for dinner. This place sounded good, and off we went. The review we read didn't mention how pretty and quaint the restaurant was inside! It's decorated with musical instruments- quite original! There is also seating outside; while we were there it was... More

The restaurant is perfectly located between the market square and old bridge. The menu is varied offering a good selection of dishes from the region. The quality of the food is excellent and the staff very helpful and giving good advice about the wines on the wine list. I recommend this restaurant for location and quality of food.

Second night in Heidelberg and saw this Restaurant on Trip Advisor. Close to old bridge and on a Saturday night in August the town was very lively. We turned up without a reservation but they were happy to accommodate us and moved a couple of tables around within a few minutes. Restaurant busy and so service was not rushed but... More

This is where the locals eat. Try the steak, it is outstanding. It is lovely to sit outside on the busy street on a summer evening, but go inside for the full experience! Wonderful atmosphere.

Arrived around noon to check in to the hotel here, and ate lunch while waiting for our room. Food was fine--Italian and German fare--though my overriding memory of the experience was waiting for 25 minutes to get our bill at the end of the meal, most of which was spent looking for/trying to flag down our server or any server....

This was the last day of our vacation, so we all stocked up on traditional German meals. We ordered the Schwabische Maultaschen, Schweinbraten, Wiener Schnitzel, Schweinelendchen. All were delicious.

This is a gem on a nice street near the bridge. Asked a local where he would go and recommended this. After eating had to go back to the store and thank him for his recommendation.
