Great schnitzel

I stayed at the hotel of this restaurant and had read rave reviews. Visited on my first night of being in Heidelberg and had the Wiener Schnitzel. Known to have the best schnitzel in town and I'm glad it lived up to its reputation.

I value politeness and quality service a lot and if you do too better stay away from this place. The waiting staff treated us as unwelcome aliens and scared us away with their rudeness. Tip for the owners: next time hire staff with one cup size smaller (admittedly the staff costumes look great when they are filled out) but with... More

This is a great place to experience classic foods of Germany. Fish and Goose preparations were particularly excellent.

Loved the decor. The place was packed which is usually a good sign. The menu was full of spaetzel and schnitzel and sausages.

Food was very good, service rather slow, but the restaurant was very busy. The decoration is very traditional as are the staff outfits

Nice bar/guesthouse/restaurant with a fabulous location right beside the Alte Brucke Gateway. Pleasant, simple, uncomplicated food. Price was around €60 for two people, not including wine, which we thought was OK for a meal with such a superb view. The Spanish waiter who served our outside table was friendly and helpful. English menus available. I tried Kaiserschmarrn for dessert for... More

A busy restaurant with locals and tourists. Some young waitresses are very kind, the older ones are inefficient and the lady manager for the dinner service is a rude, unprofessional lady!! A waitress took our order and forgot to submit it to the kitchen, we had such patience to only ask for our food after waiting for 1h15mins, the manager... More
