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

This ranks 3rd out of 195 restaurants in Karlsruhe on Tripadvisor which astonishes me and makes me never want to eat out in Karlsruhe ever again! 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 restaurant is located in Durlach, a short drive from Karlsruhe town center. It has a local Badische warm atmosphere with excellent food. We had soups - one snail one vegetable - heartwarming! The main courses were tasty and plentiful. The veal in red wine sauce and the pork in cream and mushroom sauce were excellent. Potato croquettes called -... More

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
