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

We did not know it is part of a hotel which worries us and this time we were right. It was overpriced for what we had and the service was disappointing. It was impersonal and very fast as if they wanted to get us in and out. We had a pretzel (which was nothing at all), an excellent salad and... More

We were a group of 30 or so people that booked a private room at Pillhofer for a 3 course dinner. Although some communication was lacking prior to our trip, the service on the actual date by Martina and her staff was impeccable and oustanding. Our meals were cooked to perfection and all food was exactly as ordered. The staff... More

The Pillhofer offers a limited, but genuine, selection of traditional German dishes and beers. The menu is very easy to understand, with English translations. We opted for the 500gr pork shoulder which was cooked to perfection, complete with crackling. Service was very friendly and efficient. The ambience is typical of a Bavarian pub, with lots of cosy dark hardwoods. Nothing... More

The German food and ambience were perfect. I had goulash soup and my husband had pork shoulder. We shared Nuremberg sausages and a couple of local beers. It seemed that locals also eat there so we figured that a good sign. The service was excellent. All in all, a great evening.

The Pillhofer was next to our hotel. We were after traditional local food, the menu looked promising, the prices were reasonable. We were welcomed into the cosy indoor restaurant. Beer was brought and a glass of decent German Frankish red wine. The food was fresh and appetizing, service warm and friendly. Just what we wanted.

My wife and I loved this place so much that during our stay in Nurnberg we ate either dinner or lunch there many times. The food is traditional German and very reasonably priced. I loved the atmosphere and the staff were fantastic. Great place to sit down, have a serve of German food washed down with a few beers and... More
