In many cultures "Go to Hell!" is a curse or a damnation. If a Rothenburger tells you "Geh' zur Höll'!" (ideally in response to a question about where to eat something tasty) don't get upset or take offense - rather thank him for the good advice, and ask if he'd like to accompany you! In Rothenburg ob der Tauber there... More

We came to this restaurant based on the recommendation from the owner of our hotel (Hotel Herrnschloesschen) because the hotel restaurant is closed during our stay. This hotel is located in a very small alley and not easy to find. Even though we got directions from our hotel owner, but we almost missed this restaurant. We were so glad we... More

Based on a recommendation from our innkeeper, we wandered past Zur Holl during the mid-afternoon. After seeing the menu and meeting one of the staff, we made a reservation for early evening. We were very lucky we did, since others were being turned away due to no reservations while we were dining. The restaurant is small, with only a few... More

This restaurant was fantastic. Both the food and the service was exceptional and the inside very quaint and traditional! Even though they were busy, the waiters were the most attentive of any restaurant my family and I ate in during our time in Rothenburg. The waiters were patient (even as I attempted to practice my German!), enthusiastic and extremely friendly.... More

The menu is very limited but both my husband and I enjoyed what we got, I ordered the ribs and my husband got the meat skewer. It's a very unique old house and is really a must during a visit to Rothenburg. We got there around 5:30 without a reservation and although there was mention of it being packed most... More

From the moment you walk in, you realise is place is special. The atmosphere is of a cosy mediaeval pub. The staff, warm and welcoming. The menu is home-style Bavarian, and the dishes we had were fantastic. We obviously much have shown our enjoyment as the host offered us seconds!

Spent the weekend in Rothenburg for my Birthday, and decided to eat here on the Saturday evening, we got there fairly early having read the reviews that it got busy later in the evening, and reservations required. We were lucky to be shown to a table straight away. The restaurant itself is small, quaint and has a good atmosphere. The... More

Surelly one of the worsts meals i have in my life. The menu only offers three options of plates but guess what: none was available. So we have to chose between duck and meet that originally dont appeared in the menu. We tried the meet. It was awful. We only felt the taste of oil. In fact, it remains in... More

A typically German 'stube' --small and rustic--great atmosphere. Very popular. Long line-ups. Must reserve. Service friendly and efficient...food delicious. Prices fair.
