Arrived too late for the special set menu and also missed the beef which was finished. Had pork dish and chicken salad, both tasty, well presented and plentiful, if not our first choices. Don't miss the taster of local wines which lets you sample 5 different examples, well worth the try!

It may be unfair to rate a restaurant serving a large group of tourists - I just hope they didn't give us their best stuff. The wurst was definitely nothing I'd order a second time, in Germany or anywhere else. I also expected something a bit more German in their delivery of the potatoes. Pretty much just plain mashed.

Typical German food. Enjoyed lunch. Service somewhat abrupt, but efficient. Atmosphere very Bavarian. Not a fan of German food, but the bratwurst mash potatoes & sauerkraut was good tasting with large portions.

Due to low river water, our River Cruise itinerary changed to include lunch at this restaurant. We all ate the same meal which consisted of Franconian potato soup, bratwurst, sauerkrat, mashed potatos and a a dessert. Local beers were also provided. The meal was delicious. Service was a little slow but we were a large group. The restaurant had a... More

We stopped here for a late lunch and we ate so well. We all ordered different foods and we were all satisfied. We even got desert, the apple strudel because we were so impressed. Would highly recommend it to anyone looking for authentic German cuisine.

It is a great idea, isn't? 5 small coups of wine, differerents. Delicious. Roastbeef also very taste and well done, and God, please I will never forget the apfelstrudel. Warm and perfect, except the cream which goes with the dessert as well as the vanilla ice. The cream is way too far from house made. It is really bad flashe... More

Our German friends selected this restaurant while we were in Rothenburg. Four of us had either Saurbraten or Beef Rouladen (went by different name) and all thought our meals were excellent. Service was perfect, but we were early so few others had arrived. We enjoyed salads with the meals and 2 bottles of the house wine. English menus were available,... More

We ate lunch here with many from our tour group. First, we had potato soup, which was quite good. Next, we had chicken breast with boiled potatoes and vegetables (cauliflower, carrots, broccoli). For dessert, we had apple strudel with vanilla sauce. We also had dry white wine. The food was decent, but we decided we should have had the vegetarian... More

Took the recommendation of another restaraunt with similar environment and cuisine. Wait staff was attentive, friendly, followed up to see how everything was. As a lover of duck, I was impressed with their version. Great overall experience. Many locals, which is always a good sign!

Like many others who have posted here, we were taken here by Viking during our tour of Rothenburg. It may not be fair to judge a restaurant when the menu, drinks, seating have been prearranged by your tour company, but one either gets a good impression or a bad impression of a place. Mine was of a typical tourist place.... More
