Only 200 yards from Alte Mainbruecke and Rathaus (still a little bit hidden, though), this restaurant offers a great selection of Frankonias local specialties, at good quality and acceptable ($$-$$$) price. This place is larger then it looks but fills up quite regularly. Friendly service in a slightly buzzing atmosphere.

Heard it could get busy so we popped in and booked a table. Staff very polite and friendly and very helpful. Wine soup was gorgeous, and I had the beef which was lovely. First real try of German food. Unusual things, but very good food. Not too pricey

Good food without being outstanding. Most staff lovely, but one in particular pretty rude. Lovely surroundings, however, and I would recommend.

This was the first restaurant we visited in Wurzburg, and in Germany as a whole. We thought the entrance, with its huge double doors and underpass walkway, looked fun, and we were starving, so we decided to try it. My girlfriend had a delicious steak, and I, being a largish man, had to try the platter filled with all different... More

We had not read trip adviser but the receptionist in our hotel made a mark on the map and said this was a good restaurant. We found it and although we did not have a reservation they found us a table. The service was excellent as was the wine, the food was good and plentiful; t was not gourmet but... More

Awesome atmosphere, and excellent authentic german food in an extremely old building. The staff was very accommodating even though we arrived just before the kitchen closed.

Having read comments of former patrons we entered with a critical mind. Indeed the setting is very simple and clean: wooden tables with a small napkin, wooden chairs and benches with cushions. We had a reservation and were quickly escorted to our table. As we were not as young as most customers the waiter seated us in a quiet corner... More

We had a group dinner with 8 people. The food was excellent and the décor was very special. The only complaint was the service was very slow and our waitress seemed to give more attention to the German speaking tables. But I would still highly recommend this place but do not be in any rush.

The service was horrible from the beginning to the end. Not only the waitress brought a wring drink, it took ages to bring a correct one. On top of that they never came to our table after that. Food was ok, just average nothing special. I find this place is overrated in here. We're very excited coming here because of... More
