Good food, nice ambiance, kind staff in a real part of Heidelberg

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... read more

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 enjoyed a very nice German dinner at this lovely old restaurant at the foot of the old bridge with excellent views. It was a summer evening but it was a little chilly for us since we are from Arizona so we sat inside close to the door and that gave us the views and made us feel like we... More

Food is cooked in fritter not oven baked, despite menu. Overcooked as in most "German" style food stalls. Not a restaurant quality and style defiantly. Too much cheap majo without reason. Only good thing is location... If you go there drink a beer and move on.

Good vaalue for the money - service is quick, if harried. The servers were very busy. They speak English. The food was good and plentiful. I had a potato, vegetable dish, topped with an egg and it was very good. Good place for a quick meal.

Having been in Germany for almost 6 months now its hard to rank something as head and shoulders above the rest. I'd say 80% of the restaurants I've eaten at in Europe, legitimately, are much better than what is available in the US. This coming from a hardcore Yankee. The 20% that didn't cut it? Mexican and Chinese food here,... More

The restaurant is set on the edge of the old town, on Steingasse, just off the Hauptstrasse (main shopping street). It is an old 1700s Inn that oozes character. It was very crowded but we had reserved a table and got seated without any issue. The place got very warm as the evening wore on - the toilets were at... More

This Place is a typical trap for tourists. The service is really bad and unfriendly. The Food is not bad. If you find a better place try that out first...

The main reason that we chose this restaurant was because it is right next to the Heidelberg Bridge. The bridge is one of the main tourist attractions in town. Good place for people watching. We ate outside. It was a late September evening, so it was cool. They eat outside a lot, so they are prepared for that. Most restaurants... More
