we were three friends for lunch. char with ginger broth was extremely strong and completely over power the fish... The highlight - believe it or not was the Kohlrabi dish. Simple but definitely not simplicity. The dish was impressing interesting and delicious. The only dish BTW in the meal that was justifying to my humble opinion the 2 star standards.... More

We came to Essigbrätlein with high expectations and we were not disappointed. An excellent meal from the starter to the friandises. The selection of beans with pistachio and the pigeon were amazing. The homemade chocolate selection was another favorite of mine. The cook serves all dishes himself - a phenomenal place for gourmets!

Chef Köthe and Ollech have adopted vegetables and turned them into stars. Not just a side order anymore vegetable plays the dominant role here and become an important part of the Menu with its own spice blends. They never had lobster or caviar on the table and otherwise waives illustrious because expensive beasts - for ethical reasons. When cooking, the... More

This was, without doubt, the best meal we had during our two plus weeks in Germany. We elected to have lunch, a set menu, to avoid a late night prior to an early departure for Dresden. We were glad because this is a meal that needs to be eaten slowly, savored—and digested. The restaurant, which has two well-earned stars from... More

This is an elegant and intimate restaurant with only about 7 tables, so we were a little apprehensive about bringing in our 3 little boys. However, this turned out to be a wonderful and memorable experience. The meals were beautifully presented and very imaginative, with unusual ingredients. The venison was perfect, but my favorite dish was the bean dish. It... More

This was one of the best restaunrants I've seen during our Germany-trip - it was the reason for me to get an account at tripadvisor. Not the cheepest restaurant in town, but definitely one of the best ones. Marvellous! I'll come back whenever I have the chance to visit Nuremberg again!

to celebrate a birhtday we went for a meal at the Essigbrätlein. It is almost a family tradition to go there for special celebrations - and again we found that the quality had yet improved (which was hard to imgagine, since the performance has always been outstanding). Every course left us with a feeling of pure bliss. A huge "thank... More

I make it a required stop to this food Mecca in the little town of Nuremberg everytime I visit. The restaurant occupies an old wine merchants' meeting house dating back to 1550. On your first visit, you'll swear you must be in the wrong place because there are no overbearing signs or cafe tables outside. Just pull the chain for... More

Wow. Food nirvana. Most expensive meal of my life and for me, and for my friend, worth every penny. It can be done less expensivelly if you order just a couple of courses, the full menu is not required, but is wonderful. I had the full menu and wine pairings and still swoon when I think of it. To say... More
