It is a typical German restaurant with very tasty food. The beer is perfect and the wine selection id good. The service is very good. They have a very good selection of ancient foods that are very tasty. A must to visit restaurant

This place was recommended to us by a local. I was a bit worried after reading a review saying the menu was in local dialect and the staff didn't speak English. There was no need to worry, both waitresses spoke very good English and they immediately offered us an English menu. The snails, prawns, beef and schnapps we had were... More

The food is mass catering and not well executed at all. It consisted of large plates of school dinner type food with no demonstration that the chef had any cooking skills whatsoever other than...

Visited in March for a business dinner with 12 colleagues. Cozy setting with various rooms set apart by a few stairs to different levels. Food was traditional local German with flair. Staff was friendly and efficient. I would be glad to return.

This is away from downtown Karlsruhe, in the small town of Durlach. Around € 18 taxifare gets you there. The atmosphere is what Germans would call “gemütlich”, or pleasantly relaxed, with very friendly staff helping you with the menu that’s completely written in Baden dialect. If you think you understand German, go on and try decyphering that menu! But the... More
