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

The restaurant is nice, furnished in tipical bavarian style. Service was good and waitress speaks a good english.

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.
