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.

A great place to eat. Their schnitzel is excellent and tender. The place drips with a warm welcoming atmosphere which makes you relax. This is one of my favorites when in Germany. The service is friendly not imposing and there is no language barrier either. This makes a very good choice for a meal.

6 of us had lunch in the Goldener Hecht and really enjoyed ourselves and the food! It's very easy to find being right by the main bridge. It's attractively decorated, not too big, so cozy and very comfortable to be in. It was very reasonably priced to. We all only had 'starters' as the portions were so big! Everyone who... More

We were on a Viking River cruise of the Rhine river and stopped in Heidelberg for a tour of the town and decided to have lunch here, it was great, right in the square.

if you want to experience Heidelberg for the beer, the view and the people...this is the perfect place. Situated at a corner right by the beautiful bridge, you can see the Philospher's Way, the Castle, the Bridge and the Statue!! With great beer and great food...you will have an experience to remember!!

This was the first restaurant we "happened into" during our month in Heidelberg. We were hungry, didn't know our way around, and had just finished a city tour so were near the Old Bridge. The Goldener Hecht was a surprising find, given its location in a "highly-touristed" part of town. I give it an excellent rating for the combination of... More

Wife and I ate here and we had the goulash with spaetzle and marinated rindfleisch along with the gerschmekter salad. The atmosphere was great very traditional German and right near the old bridge. The service was good although the poor .waitress was off her feet as it was quite busy. The goulash was lovely as was the marinated rindfleisch. Unfortunately... More
