After a cold wet and windy summer day in germany we needed somewhere to dry out and to get something warm... this was the ideal place... Nice sushi, a good piece of salmon with rice and hot miso soup with jasmine tea for two: 22 euros, all served with a smile. 5 mins walking distance from the town centre.

Who would have thought that you can get good and authentic Japanese food in the middle of Bavaria inside the ancient city walls of Rothenburg ob der Tauber! We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food and service we received. We had Unagi Don, Age Dashi Dofu, and different maki and nigiri sushi. This is a nice diversion... More

I'm from Hawaii and take good rice for granted. But since I have been traveling in Germany, rice has been difficult to get and when I did find it, it was watery, over cooked, or weirdly spiced. So I love that this place made perfect short grain rice. The restaurant with basic offerings would not likely survive in Honolulu that... More

After reading the reviews from TA, we decide to have Japanese food for lunch in Rothenburg. To my surprise , although the teriyaki chicken I had was a little bit salty for my taste , it was really delicious ! The vegetarian ramen my husband had was also delicious! Highly recommended if you crave for Japanese food in Europe

We liked it so well, we went here twice in a weekend! Loved the food and enjoyed the quiet atmosphere after several days touring through the old town with good sized crowds. We definitely recommend it.

Louvre is true Japanese-- their sushi is very Japanese style and the owners are Japanese. They are so charming and really work to make you feel at home. This is one of our favorite restaurants and we've gone many times in our 3 years here in Germany. The sushi is always extremely fresh and affordable. Don't expect the fancy American... More

We were so sick of german food by night 8 of our trip that we decided to really shake it up and go japanese based upon the Tripadvisor reviews. I'm glad we did. The food here was really good. The service can be a little slow because there was only one lady (the nicest person I've ever seen) serving the... More

My husband and I just happened to stumble upon this hot-spot while walking through Rothenburg. We were more than satisfied with the food (fresh and tasty!) and dinner service (efficient with a smile!). Great selection of specialty rolls and intimate/fun atmosphere. Will be recommending Louvre Sushi to anyone who visits Rothenburg in the future!

It seems a little strange to have such authentic Japanese food in the heart of a medieval Germany town, but that's what this is. The sushi was terrific and my wife swears the miso is the best she's ever had (and we've had a bunch). The food is good, the service fast and friendly, and the atmosphere is cozy. And... More

We celebrated New Years Eve in Rothenburg ob der Tauber and chose the Louvre. Glad we did. The service was attentive, the sushi fresh and delicious, the atmosphere low key and relaxing. We will definitely return if/when we return to Rothenburg.
