Great location - good food

Sat outside (booked earlier in the day) and had a great time soaking up the atmosphere as we ate and drank. Attentive staff with a good selection of food & wine.

This restaurant is close to the bridge, has a nice outside patio in summer and serves South German food to the many hungry tourists that inundate the area. It is a good choice, as the service is fast and friendly, and the food is tasty. Prices are reasonable too. Do not expect a temple of high cuisine with white table... More

Walked to the Old bridge and decided to eat in the restaurant, after finding a table every thing was great. Good service, lovely beer, great food, attentive staff, fantastic location. We eat schnitzel which was really good and had a couple of beers.

Open air restaurant on the shore of the river. Lovely view of river and hills. One of us had the pasta, one the bratwurst, and one the schnitzel. All fantastic. Don't miss the Kaiserscmmarr'n for desert

Waited forever to be served. Told waitress, who was chatting about her weekend with the other waitress, that we were waiting. She said "schön für Sie" (nice for you) and kept on chatting. Had the pfifferlinge risotto. It was very small and had almost no taste, there were just three pfefferlinge in the risotto. Left hungry and totally dissatisfied. Probably... More

We arrived shortly after 8pm and our order was taken by 8:20 but we still had nothing to eat by 9. We did ask about our food and think the waitress had forgotten our order. When the food came at 9:15 it was excellent. One dish was pfifferlingen risotto and Zander, Others had Tafel Spitz and a daily delicious meat... More

We have been there twice during our visit in Heidelberg. We had salads with styrian pumpkin seed oil for lunch and had fish with mushroom risotto for dinner. Staff was very professional and nice, atmosphere inside really romantic. Go there, it is worth.

My wife and I have been in Europe for two weeks visiting Munich, Salzburg, Innsbruck, Lucerne, Geneva, Milan and Paris. We just had our best meal yet, hands down. Great food. Try the Vienna Steak with garlic gravy and fried potatoes or the Cordon Bleu!

Classic german restaurant, with nice traditional interiors. Personal was gentle. However, the menu is always the same: meat, salads and potatoes. In addiction, you will find two fish main dishes. You don't have to expect nothing special from the cuisine, unfortunately. The prices are in line with the german ones.

We went to Goldener Hecht twice, for lunch and for dinner. Lunch for an easy and huge salad with chicken, very good and tasty. Nice white wine and very friendly staff, we were many, arriving at different time and they were always ready for new requests. We came back the day after for dinner, we had a very good meat... More
