We enjoyed a variety of food: bratwurst, kasespaetzel, potato pancakes, etc. It was all good. Service was good.

Nice place, full of people (always a good sign). We had basic Bavarian style food, especially good was the blood budding/pancakes(or something like that) with lentils and the potato soup with bacon. We actually went there twice during our trip!

I've eaten in a lot of restaurants in my time, the service here has been some of the best ever! Great recommendations, great service, pleasant, friendly, attentive, relaxed, lots of info to share...really memorable for us! If you've read/heard about the Mayor of Rothenburg who drank 3L of wine in one gulp to save the city, then you have to... More

While on a day trip in Rothenburg, the 4 of us stopped here to have lunch. Portion sizes are big and the service was very good. Lunch with a couple of drinks each was 60 euro, so great value. Located about half way up on the right side of the Main Street heading to the main square.

This is not the cheapest place but it's also not expensive. The food is amazing and authentic to the region. The service is good but keep in mind that Bavarians sit and visit over meals - don't expect fast! It's definitely worth the stop for the pure deliciousness!!

We walked in off the street for a bite to eat. The portions were very large and priced remarkably well. We shared braised pork and stuffed ravioli dishes. Food arrived very quickly although a large group arrived right after us.

We almost didn’t eat here – we wandered in to make a reservation and were asked to pay 5 Euros (refundable of course) as a reservation fee, as apparently a lot of people reserve and then don’t turn up. In our many years of living in Germany, this was a first! Presumably they accept phone reservations!? We refused and would... More

The Apple-Horseradish Soup was absolutely wonderful! The service was fantastic. The rest of the meal was good, just not outstanding.

I stopped in unexpectedly for a lunch and I found the restaurant to be welcoming. I liked the traditional German menu and I would gladly dine here again.
