After reading many very positive reviews on Trip Advisor, we ventured here for dinner on Sunday evening with our two boys (9 and 7) for a German meal in a lovely setting. Even though the restaurant was not busy, when we entered and asked if we could sit at an open table outdoors, we were treated like an annoyance. We... More

Food was good though not spectacular, quite a few of our choices from the menu weren't available and I wonder if they over-compensated with the quantity of food we received. Portions were huge and none of us were able to clear our plates despite being quite hungry. Godd value and I'd definitely recommend eating here.

Not to be repetitious, but as previously reviewed: everything was perfect--the setting, the service, the meal, the beer/wine. This is a charming little medieval town, and Alter Keller is on a back street away from the flow of tourists. Our choices of pork (it's Germany after all), plus sauerkraut and red cabbage, were absolute perfection. Have never eaten better sauerkraut... More

We discovered this place just like many other by reading reviews on this site. It is located on one of the side streets where tourists usually don’t walk unless they are looking specifically for this place. It was about 2 blocks away from the place we were staying at so we decided to go there for lunch. We were seated... More

We stopped by Rothenburg for lunch and we picked the Alter Keller by chance and showed up without reservation. Everything was perfect : the setting, the decoration, the service, the meal, the dessert, simply perfectly enjoyable. Congrats !

We ate here at our third attempt. The first time we left having lunch too late and the kitchen was closed, the second time we arrived on a Tuesday evening to find out that it was closed Mondays and Tuesdays. We returned the next evening and were not disappointed and it was excellent value too! Four main courses and four... More

The menu is small but the food is amazing. The service is fast and the staff are so friendly. One of the best restaurants I have been to in Germany.

The interior of the restaurant is really typically decorated, you feel the authentic German atmosphere, which is really cozy. I had pork shoulders and it was really amazing, one of the best pork shoulders I've ever had, it melts in your mouth. It comes with the typical Bavarian potato dumplings and red cabbage. Waiters do not speak English very well... More

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
