Went on a recommendation and from our hotel and the food was very good. The schnitzel was very good and I had the potato salad and my wife had the spätzle, it was all very good. Highly recommend to pay it a visit but do try and get a reservation.

We were there with a group of about 15 People during a Business Meeting. Good we made a Reservation as the Restaurant was fully packed at 7:30 pm. Good athmosphere in an old townhouse, felt a Little bit cramped as it was really full. Very attentive waiters/waitresses who also knew their menu well. Service was quite fast. Somewhat Austrian inspired... More

Spent the last weekend in Heidelberg visiting family and enjoying the music festival, we wanted to sample a restaurant that offered German food. The service was excellent as was the food, traditionally dressed staff added to the experience. We would recommend trying it.

Enjoyed a late afternoon lunch here with friends. I noticed right away that many of the menu items are Austrian-influenced, and many of the food terms are Austrian, not German. My wife had a fish of some kind, and the schnitzel I had was excellent, as was the beer. Sitting outside was very enjoyable. The waitress either didn't understand my... More

The food and drink was great, the location by the Old Bridge is outstanding. We ate with 3 other couples, all were very pleased.

Lunching here recently while the restaurant was not very busy, we received terrible service. Tap water was ordered. Two opened bottles of water were delivered with our food. When we told the waiter who seemed to be the manager, that this was not what we wanted he ignored us and disappeared. We declined to pay for the water which we... More

Not one but TWO of the best restaurant meals ever, plus a charming courtyard setting with view of old bridge, lots of shade even at lunch time. The asparagus salad was amazing… I took a picture of it, so you can see for yourself… the typical big white asparagus pieces plus green asparagus plus beautiful pieces of fresh strawberries plus...

We had reserved for some 20 people in the context of a conference. Unfortunately, the service was extremely slaw so that we received our dessert later than 11 p.m. although we had chosen a fixed menue and had arrived already at 7.30. However, the served food was delecious. We then checked this restaurant also with close friends. Again, the food... More

The Wiener Schnitzel here is my favorite in Heidelberg and I have had many. Nice cozy eating area and very good service. Portions are very generous and the prices are very reasonable. I will be back soon.
