The restaurant is nice, furnished in tipical bavarian style. Service was good and waitress speaks a good english. I've tasted "Schweinebraten" that is roasted pork meat and one "Bratwurst" that are the tipical local small sausages. It was good but nothig remarkable, portion was medium, nothing special. Much better with the mixed salad served in a funny glass pot that... More

Good food and wine/beer. Seemed reasonably priced to me. Good service although it was quite quiet the night we ate there. Waitress was very helpful.

While the restaurant was decent enough and the food acceptable, the service made a mistake and the customer has to pay for it As especially pointed out by the supervisor! Scenario, main course order wrongly taken, I had to choose to keep or change, at no time where we informed we had to pay for their screw up! So either... More

Chose to eat here as next to the hotel we were staying and it was quite late in the evening. Downstairs full so sat in the upstairs room which was delightful and cosy. Food was excellent, some of the best pork I have ever tasted and at very reasonable cost. Service was satisfactory and non-intrusive

This is a great place for local food. The restaurant is located near the entrace to the old town, which is where our hotel is located so it is very convenient for us. We had the pork shoulder, Nuremberg sausages, salad and soup plus 2 beers, cost around 40 Euro. Both the ambience and the food are above average. Would... More
