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.

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.
