Visited here for lunch

I did not expect the food to be good but it turns out it was excellent. The portion is very big and 3 people ordered twomain courses and a soup to be full stomach so take into account.

Had lunch here sitting out at a table on the cobblestone street. Very quaint and nice to be on a small side alley away from the more touristy main square. Goulash soup and salads were delicious. Service was a bit slow, but we weren't in a hurry :)

We came here for lunch. Service was a little slow considering that only two other tables were occupied when we were there. The food was good and tasty. I especially liked the Hungarian Goulash.

I spent two evenings in Rothenberg with my family during a recent tour of Germany. The first leg of our circuitous itinerary was the Romantic Road, with Rothenberg as our first stop. It is a magnificent, pristine medieval town, perhaps the finest in all Europe. I used Trip Advisor as primary counsel on all ten of the restaurants booked in... More

My wife and I ate here for dinner last night. The steak was US style and good. Unfortunately they were out of the top sirloin. A diversion from all of the pork served in town

My children had the sausage plate and the schnitzel both meals. I had the tenderloin and baked potato for dinner and it was EXCELLENT! perfectly cooked to medium as requested! This is a definite must... More

This restaurant was selected by our German friend, who is a tour guide. The atmosphere was calm and peaceful and the food was wonderful. We visited with friends and we're not hurried by our server. Beautiful afternoon in a very special spot!

This restaurant had beef on the menu! After traveling in Germany for three weeks, we wanted something other than pork. We had very good cow steaks and tasty salads for dinner. This restaurant was a bit off the main street in town, so most people do not notice it unless they walk off the main street. We ate at this... More
