My wife and I ate here twice. This place has a simple German pub menu with a small range of traditional German starters, main courses and deserts. The food is fresh, tasty and well presented. And the service is friendly and efficient. Highly recommend

Visited this place twice during the busy music festival. The staff were really busy but remained friendly and helpful. Absolutely loved the goulash soup.

Cosy restaurant with traditional food. Food was good (allthough very simple). We had meat courses which both where good and typical german in line with the interior.

Next door to the Hotel Victoria. After a day of sightseeing in 100 degree temp, did not have energy to go farther than next door. Luckily, reviews by Trip Advisor clients didn't disappoint. Wife had sauerbraten and I had Jung roast pork. My meat was a bit dry, but sauerkraut made up for it. Wife's dinner was over-the-top; if ever... More

We ate here for dinner tonight, based on the recommendation of our hotel (and the positive reviews on trip advisor). It was a good decision. I had a grilled pork with pepper, sauerkraut and a dumpling. The pork was a tad dry, but otherwise good. My wife had pork as well, but not grilled. I found it actually tastier. The... More

We went here because it serves Paulaner beer and they serve it in Maßkrüge (1ltr steins). It is fairly small inside so may be a good idea to reserve. By chance, we hadn't eaten anything since breakfast and thank goodness because we had their platter for two people. It was an absolute feast! There was meats, dumplings and all the... More

Enjoyed an excellent meal and beers. We sat in the outside terrace and enjoyed the great parade of people that passed by as we ate & drank. Very friendly and helpful staff.

I'd booked this restaurant but, doubting my choice and thinking about changing, asked the guys in Die Drei Raben for their recommendation of a local restaurant - it was Pillhofer, not least in their view because its cooking was firmly based in local Franconian tradition. Very warm welcome from someone whom I think was the co-proprietor. Good table in a... More
