Best place to eat in Rothenburg

So having only eaten at 5 places in town I can say this place was my favorite. First, unlike the restaurant Zur Holle which looked very cool on the inside (go there but make reservations), the wait isn't crazy. The food is good and priced correctly unlike much of the rest of town. The tip is... read more

I had the Frankonian sausages with saurkraut and potato dumpling (subbed it for the roasted potatoes). It was one of the best meals of my entire trip! The restaurant was close to the market square but tucked away and quiet. We showed up when they opened at 6 and almost all of the outside tables had reservations on them for... More

Dinner here after walking the amazing city of Rothenburg was the best. The menu offered great German food at very modest prices. The pork schnitzel with mushroom sauce was delicious and the pork knuckle was huge. So many great beers and wines to compliment the meal. Thoroughly enjoyed the night and would highly recommend this restaurant.

very well located - nice breakfast - do stay the night here if you are in Rothenburg ob der Tauber. Dinner closes at 9.30pm so plan accordingly

No wonder this place rates highly. We sat in the back courtyard, which was quiet and completely charming. The food was terrific. Potato pancakes with pumpkin and salmon was a p,easing surprise and a traditional pork dish was done extremely well. Service with a smile, a too reasonable bill and a wonderful lunch. Thanks.

We stopped by here for an early lunch and ended up sitting outside enjoying the day for a couple of hours. The food was great and the servers were delightful. This is a little off the beaten path (like maybe a block or two!!) but it was good to get away from all the tourists that are around the city... More

I stopped by the Gasthof Butz to make dinner reservations for 7:30. Due to the person's lack of English and my poor German, the reservation was set for 7:00. Nevertheless, they held our table and we were seated on entry. Our waitress was a delightful young lady with excellent English. We asked if Spargel (white asparagus) was available and she... More

Ordered two soups as appetizers which were both very delicious followed by Maultaschen and Roulade which were even better. They were very busy but we were able to call ahead to reserve a table for later in the evening. Great atmosphere inside as well!

Our best memory is the waitress warming up to our attempts to speak German. She taught us the colloquial "Guten Rutsch" which is a well wisher's farewell used in the run-up to New Year's Day. Food is traditional and very satisfying. Great value. Would recommend this place.

Just a little walk up from the main Platz and worth every step! Great food, great prices, lovely outdoor tables. We asked our sales lady in one of the shops of the town where her favorite place was for lunch and she recommended this. She was so right! Yummy local food!
