Understaffed but nice quaint restaurant.

It's always a plus point if menu are available in English and Chinese. Very traditional German restaurant and we had servings of the usual schnitzel, pasta, sausage platter, beer, desserts etc. The pork hock is highly recommended. Can't really share the same sentiments about the service as we saw... read more

We had a great, traditional German meal here. There was a big selection of meals on the menu. We had the Wiener Schnitzel and the sausage plater and both were very tasty and big portions. The service was great, our waiter was very friendly. When we arrived the restaurant was empty but it soon filled up with people of various... More

Nice selection of German food. Highly recommend the potato soup! The Roter Hahn was still serving dinner when many other restaurants had finished. The servers were friendly. The location is excellent right in downtown Rothenburg.

Our family enjoyed a yummy traditional German lunch. The food was delicious! We had the Wiener schnitzel, potato pancakes, spaetzle, and the sausage plater. We are every bite and would love to go back again! The service quick and friendly.

We went back twice for the haxn and 1 liter wheat beer. We wanted to try the veal leg, but didn't know we needed to call and order it at noon in order to have it for dinner.

Had a recommendation for this restaurant from a friend in Germany. As told the food & the beer is very tasty. Beer served in large pots is too good to taste. For a weak person it can be difficult to lift it. Food is good, tasty, well garnished and served very attractively. French fries are crunchy. The chicken dishes we... More

We had heard about Roter Hahn before arriving in Rothenburg but bypassed it for a day because the outdoor patio looked a little small and partially obstructed by being set in between buildings. MISTAKE. After being turned off by lackadaisical service at our first choice, we did go back here for dinner(TWICE!) and found out that what it suffered from... More

There is plenty of choice on the menu here, which my partner and I appreciated. I found that my pork medallions with spätzle were a little dry, although the portion size was nothing to complain about; it was massive! The service was perfectly friendly and quick. Overall, this is a pleasant place to eat in the evening, although it doesn't... More

This place features a great combination of food, service, friendliness, and location on a Main Street near the Market Plaza square. Many servers speak good restaurant English. Indoor atmosphere is excellent. Prices are reasonable. The soups are very good. The potato soup with bacon was excellent. The apple-horseradish soup while unusual had a sublime combination of favors without being overpowering.... More
