A bit of fun

We learned about this restaurant from the night watchman's tour. We went the next evening expecting to find a line up. However we got a table immediately and enjoyed being "in hell". The food was delicious and reasonably priced.

What a fantastic meal - the skewers, soup, sausages, cheeses, etc were all fantastic. Our group of 9 shares plates and everyone enjoyed themselves. The service was great - very friendly. We even got to hang out with the Night Watchman. Could not recommend more highly.

A cosy but slightly cramped restaurant. A very welcoming staff with an interesting limited menu. Comfort food is the best description, well cooked and well presented and inexpensive. The restaurant is justifiably popular but regrettably under staffed and service was stretched as a consequence. It is difficult to balance great value as this is with additional staffing costs so something... More

We had the asparagus soup (deliciously creamy-could have ended there it was so good) and hubby had the meat skewer... More

It is a German restaurant and offers good food. The seats are limited and be sure get there earlier. Try the daily soup and daily special. Both have the white asparagus and they are good. The price may vary depend on the selections.

We arrived in Rothenberg today and visited Zur Holl at the advice of other TripAdvisor authors. The food was as outstanding as the owner who served us (see photo of him with steak skewer entree). The service was great which made my kids happy. We loved the steak skewer best, then the ribs and also the salmon. Like many smaller... More

This is a great restaurant. Go here when you have plenty of time and want to relax. It took quite a while to get any service. As long as you go in expecting it to take some time, it will be fantastic!

If possible, eat in the cellar.....the oldest building in Rothenburg. It is very unique! We ate in the house and it was great as well. Food was very good but not spectacular, atmosphere is good, service is great. This is a cash only restaurant so take enough euros to pay for dinner.

We were hungry and we were late in the afternoon. We were a big group. Still the quality of food and hospitality and eating we enjoyed here is unparalled. We went first for mixed palatte starters with beer. Then we has ribs and schnitzel. Some of us also had soup. Dont think anyone of such a large contingent made a... More
