Rothenburg is a quaint medieval town, and this off-the-beaten path restaurant showcased the charm very well. Stepping inside the restaurant was like traveling back in time. The ceiling and walls were decorated with metal pots and pans as well as utensils that look like they are part of a movie set. It's definitely the most unique decor we've ever seen.... More

After a month in Germany we were looking for a steak, thanks to trip advisor we found this hotel restaurant and it was great. The steaks were sensational, cooked perfectly, tender PERFECT. The service was good as well,

As usual, we reference TA before selecting our one dinner in Rothenburg. The rave reviews were all true and we enjoyed an outstanding meal. We each had the soup special (cream of potato). I ordered the Franconian sausage with sauerkraut and bread, while my husband had the spatzel with asparagus. Everything was delectable and the service impeccable. Just go -you... More

This is off the main road through the town but worth ringing. It is very charming with good staff and menus in English. I had a wonderful salad and asparagus and my husband had spatlese. The food was great - we tried some of the local wines and one of the Schneeball - a local pastry. Good value and highly... More

We sat outside on a lovely evening. Its situation means you don't really get traffic going past but it's only a short walk from the main part of the town. Service was friendly and, even though she knew we were English, as we were trying to speak German to her, she spoke German back! We had: "Steak on fire" -... More

After walking around the town walls we were hot and hungry. Alter Keller is where we chose to go and we were pleased. We both had steak and baked potatoes, which were excellent and a great value. The beer was cold, and we got to sit outside. No complaints at this restaurant.

After almost a week in Germany, we were getting a little tired of all the pork dishes and hankering for some good beef. We had read good reviews about Alter Keller's garlic steaks and decided to try them. Glad we did because they really lived up to the reviews. 15.50 Euros for a 300g ribeye steak done to perfection and... More

We all loved the food. We didn't have reservations, but they were able to squeeze us in. Can't go wrong here.

We had a lovely dinner here our first night in Germany. The setting was great and didn't have as many tourists around. The asparagus soup was delicious, as well as the Kasespatzle. Highly recommended!!!!
