What I loved about the Alter Keller was that is was NOT in the main square or on one of the busy streets with all kinds of tourists walking by staring at my food. People who travel regularly know that the best places are those that are tucked away, off the beaten track, not obvious. The places right on the... More

We were disappointed as this had been highly recommended by our hotel. Location was not great bearing in mind the great locations in the city. Food was very average. We only had schnitzels but they were not great!

When we arrived the restaurant, we... More

We both had the massive fillet steak and chips (we ordered the smaller one but it was still huge). It was superbly cooked to order and came with loads of crispy chips and salad, and for 19 euro it was excellent value. The local wine was delicious, both the red and the white, as well as the beer, served in... More

Among the five of us , we tried several dishes, and one was better than the next. The schnitzel with mushroom sauce, goulash, and roasted pork with red cabbage were so rich tasting, and the sauerkraut and brat were very traditional and the way we expected. The atmosphere, service and prices were great, too. Can't go wrong here!

With there being such a huge choice of restaurants it took us a while to decide where to eat. We popped our head in a few places but this was the first place that really appealed because of the décor. We had some great food, I had the pork knuckles and potato dumplings, it was a huge portion and very... More

After just arriving in the town and not wishing to have our brunch on a busy street we ventured randomly to the side streets. This restaurant located on a quiet plaza appealed to us and took a table on the sidewalk. The service was efficient but with not warm. The food was good. Prices very reasonable. I estimate in a...

We ate here for dinner. We were a little pressed for time as we had a tour appointment to make. They were very accommodating making suggestions on what we could order that would be fairly fast. Food was good. My wife and daughter especially enjoyed the noodles and cheese dinner. Friendly service.
