Gut bürgerliche Küche

We were in town for the Christmas Market with my sister and a friend from the States and wanted to have dinner somewhere with local cuisine. I called at 6:30 and they had a table for 4 ready for us for 7:30, which I thought was great given the short notice and the busyness of the Christmas Market... read more

Traditional-style German restaurant with very nice local dishes. Waitresses are very friendly, helpful and speak english. They are wearing dirndl and together with the restaurant's antique interior, you will have a feeling as if you traveled back in time!.

We really enjoyed the relaxed traditional atmosphere of this charming place. Friendly and efficient service and really tasty food. The pork haxe was perfect with its three klos; and the pork schnitzel and potato salad was right there with it. Tasty goulash soup and apple strudel. A very enjoyable meal in the old town.

Nice menu, with steak and duck if you're so inclined, but the traditional food like the jäger schnitzel and goulash were superb! Fresh, seasonal desserts if you have room (we barely did) with cappuccino was nice way to finish evening, of course a stroll thru town then. Reasonably priced, great food and wonderful atmosphere!

The restaurant is located in a quiet street of the old town. You can choose to on the streetside or inside, which has a cozy and homely feel. The service from the wait staff was good and the food, while nothing spectacular was of a good quality and value.

My wife and I ate dinner here during our stay in Rothenburg. She ordered Sauerbraten, but unfortunately her piece of meat was so tough her teeth and jaw hurt trying to chew it. When the waitress asked if everything had tasted good I replied in German that my wife's meat was like shoe leather. The waitress said that she would... More

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!
