It's a good place to have a relax dinner here. The restaurant was warm and friendly, and the food was perfect! They have something special that didn't on the menu, you must try it. You can ask for suggestion about the wine as well, and the waiter (probably boss) always smile.

I went there after the night watchman Tour and it was full but I decided to wait for a table and it was worth. The food is very good and the staff is helpful.

Eating in the oldest house in Rothenburg is a special experience. Just step in and feel brought back into medieval times (without the usual kitsch). The restaurant is pretty small, the ceiling is low and there is not much space, so reserve well in advance. The standard menu is small, but they have regular seasonal specials. The food is local...

VISIT IT! MUST visit, especially if you are not from Europe! Urig - gemütliches Lokal, nette Betreiber! Kommt bei 2/3 des Essens, und fragt, ob man noch einen Kloß oder Sosse benötigt! Quite some location - lots of tradition, yet very nice operators! Card is very typical for the area, highly recommended! WARNING: do RESERVATE well in advance! Ist immer... More

I’m always a little dubious about restaurants in places that thrive on tourism. I read some of the reviews here and thought this place might be worth a try. I had just finished taking the excellent Night Watchman Tour with my partner and parents. I did book ahead as I knew the place had limited tables and was likely to... More

The decorations here feel like you stepped back into medieval times. Very cute! Unfortunately they close the kitchen at 10 (they're the latest kitchen in the area!) and we got there at 10:30, so they were only serving cold meats and cheese. We got the meet and cheese platter large enough for 2 and it was delicious...and I'm not a... More

Great little drinking and eating place. Best hospitality in town. Proprietor and waitress both very friendly and engaging, which is something you don't often encounter in Germany as it is simply not considered part of the German 'hoeflichkeit' (politeness) to be too engaging with restaurant or hotel guests. We loved this version of hospitality. Food and drink was great as... More

The skewers with beef, vegetables and porc were absolutely fantastic, the owner lady incredibly kind and attentive. The only negative is perhaps a lack of comfort in the seating, a somewhat limited choice in food & drink and a sometimes overwhelmed staff despite the limited seating. Recommended if you are in Rothenburg though.

Great place for a meal. Reservations most likely needed. Our hotel took care of it. The food was excellent and the atmosphere Medieval.

Stumbled into this restaurant with friends and we were able to get in without a reservation. However if going at a busier time, I would recommend a reservation. Small restaurant, very quaint. Menu is only a few items-specials of the day. Everything we had was delicious and very reasonably priced for good food. The staff was very accommodating and desert... More
