We stopped in to warm up on a cold day in Rothenburg. We really didn't want to eat a big meal, so we just had soups. They were very good. The pumpkin soup wasn't creamy as usually is around here, but it was very tasty. My wife really enjoyed meaty goulash. They sure warmed us up for another round of... More

Waitress in semi-traditional garments (dirndl) greeted us and we found a seat. Meals seemed to be made for 2 with 2 good sized pieces of meat for each meal. Schnitzel was thick and breading delicious. Pork with mushroom gravy sauce was outstanding. French fries were french fries. Salad dressing was good. At odds over special Christmas beer. Good service and... More

Located right off the main square, this was recommended as one of the better German restaurants in town. It was very bright, open, basic cafe-feel without great ambience. The food and service, however, were excellent. The Franconian Pork shoulder was braised and tender with great flavor and came with a lovely sauce. The cabbage was fairly sweet and stewed in... More

Located right off the main square in the hotel. The atmosphere was comfortable and more casual than I was expecting. Service was upbeat and friendly. We were looking for typical German food and this fit the bill and for a reasonable price.

The food was pretty good -- two of us had the Wiener Schnitzel which was great, but the Pommes Frites with it were very average. One had a Pork Shoulder...very dry. But the red cabbage and dumplings with it were yummy. The salads were very good. Our biggest disappointment was that we were surrounded by tourists. As we left we... More

Slow service, seated us at a dirty table, never brought napkins. We had to beg for the bill and then he begged for a tip. No, I would not recommend ever. Rude and slow. I tip for service that is prompt and respectful.

We had a delicious meal with our family at this restaurant. There were children's books readily available upon entry. On the outside patio there were several rideable children's toys. The food & service were wonderful & attitude delightful. Their potato dumplings are to die for. They even had child size cutlery. Everything about our lunch was delightful. Look forward to... More

The food was what you would expect. The service was friendly & efficient. This is a nice stop before taking the Night Watchman's Tour, which meets outside in the main plaza. Do not miss the night tour!

Here's the 1,2,3s... 1. So close to main square you would think it would be very touristy. Well, maybe it is, but there's a reason it's a full restaurant...the food is Good! 2. Traditional, cold-weather warming, German comfort food like roast pork and potato dumplings. 3. Super attentive older ladies that speak English.

We decided to dine here after I saw cod on the menu outside. We were not disappointed. The cod was delicious and appreciated after so much red meat and chicken. We had a nice waitress. We had to sit outside and it was a bit chilly, but it was a Sat eve and the inside was full or reserved.
