Authentic Local Fare in Rothenberg

We had lunch with a large tour group from the "Viking Embla" river boat, and Viking arranged for a tasty lunch of beer or wine, potato soup, bratwurst, mashed potatoes, and sauerkraut. Everything was delicious and the apple strudel dessert was out of this world. The interior of the restaurant was... read more

I was pleasantly surprised with our meal at Glocke. The food was simple but pretty good. Our fixed menu consisted of potato soup to start, bratwurst, mashed potatoes(instant?), and kraut for the main and apple strudel and coffee for dessert. I have no idea about the prices b/c we were there with a tour group. The service was efficient. The... More

We went as a tour group and the food was good and fast. The white wine was very good. Not sweet and not dry.

Some folks on Trip Advisor have really hammered this place so we were concerned when Viking River Cruises took us here for lunch. We were pleasantly surprised. The staff was very friendly and efficient, feeding our group of 40 in under 45 minutes. And we never felt rushed or hurried. The 3 course meal was served hot and was very... More

Definitely worth it. We visited about 5 restaurants in Rothenburg and this one was the best one. The food waas very typical with local specialities. The servise was very nice and friendly, English speaking, family run. The choice of traditional food was great, not just wursts and cabbage. We tried mushroom soups and Maultaschen as starters, both very tasty. They... More

We enjoyed a light lunch and some wine from the Glocke's own vineyards. The food was well presented and tasty. The service was very good and the price was reasonable.

We were here with a bus tour so I can only comment on that. Potatoe soup was good but bratwurst was just okay and the potatoes were like the instant variety. The strudel was fine. Quaint wood lined dining room.

Perched at a window table, we enjoyed a nice casual lunch at Glocke. They had a nice selection of traditional German dishes and great wines (they have a winery). The service was efficient and friendly and the atmosphere cozy. Both the food and wine were good and reasonably priced. We went next door after to buy a bottle of wine... More
