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

Terrific food, nice service, very authentic atmosphere, and great value. would go back any time, and recommend to friends, family and acquaintances. hands down, this is a great place to go for a meal at the restaurant, and stay a couple of nights at the hotel with nice, clean rooms and a great breakfast buffet.

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.
