Good, typical Bavarian food. Portions are also large enough to keep you happy. Very good quality with budget prices, do not miss.

Best food in Rothenburg, period. Stop wasting your time and looking around, and just go to Alter Keller. Better make a reservation or you will be disappointed, as the word is out and this place is very busy. I have eaten here this year more than 25 times as I have business often in Rothenburg. For those who make reservations,... More

Knowing that it could be challenging to get a table for six over the advent weekend , the six of us (including 2 children) set off for our weekend in Rothenburg , reserving a table 2 days ahead at the Alter Keller to eat during the first night of our stay. We arrived on time only to find that our... More

Alter Keller was the first place we ate when coming to Rothenburg. We were not disappointed! There is a comfortable, cozy, warm atmosphere with traditional Bavarian decor. The service was great. My husband ordered the pork shoulder with potato knoedle and red cabbage. He loved it. I had a chicken strip salad that was full of different veggies and light... More

This was a typical German restaurant wit typical food so there was a lot at a reasonable price. Again, you have to worry about getting too much meat.

My fiancé and I had dinner there. They where packed, but let us wait at a reserved table with a beer and a menu. We had a table quickly, and enjoyed good service and food. I had the weekly special of roast duck with potato dumplings. Was excellent. She had the weekly special of mushroom ragout with bread dumplings. Both... More

We ate lunch here, and enjoyed it very much. The traditional food was very good, substantial in size, and reasonably priced. The restaurant, like Rothenburg overall, is very quaint and old world, making it a very pleasant environment to dine in. We would eat here again.

We only had one night in the gorgeous, walled city of Rothenburg. I wanted our dinner spot to be perfect, just like this place. We peeked into windows, read menus and persevered until it popped out at us. Alter Keller is down a little, side street, easily missed. We were not disappointed. Our servers were attentive, our food was delicious.... More

We picked this place following the Tripadvisor reviews and were not disappointed. Many places close their kitchen at around 9, so it might be a good idea to get there not too late (we saw many people arrive and being turned away). Service was polite and efficient. We got steak, schnitzel and suckling pig. All dishes were, albeit not exceptional,... More

We were told to go here because it was the best place in town. Had traditional German fare i.e. schnitzel, sausage & cabbage etc. No complaints about food. Only complaint was the server. She seemed uninterested in us, maybe because we were 4 women?? Heard from another source that she is the owner. Needs to work on her people skills.
