A little of this and that.

Excellent would be the word the best describes this place, from the food, the atmosphere, including some great American oldies, the service and the charm. And you get all of this for an inexpensive price. Seating is limited though and wait times can be expected during peak periods. Interesting... read more

Excellent would be the word the best describes this place, from the food, the atmosphere, including some great American oldies, the service and the charm. And you get all of this for an inexpensive price. Seating is limited though and wait times can be expected during peak periods. Interesting artwork also adorns the walls.

The food and beer is cheap and very well cooked. We came a busy night, but the waiters had everything under control and we never felt left alone despite the full restaurant. We had among other things the Indian stir fry and some homemade pasta. Everything was homemade, and tasted wonderful. Dont miss out this place if you are in... More

This restaurant is located in the medivial part of Marburg. It is a very good place to eat without spending too much money. And the dishes are very good.

Actually I have nothing to add to what my predecessors wrote, I'm just collecting review points .... Excellent, simple food more than worth it's price, lots of young people, milk with honey ('Honigmilch') ... we stop there every time we're in Marburg!

I am Italian therefore high expectation regarding pasta! Me and my wife had Casseroles (Auflauf) and was delicious. Could not expect it better. The service is excellent, young gentle staff. Prices are affordable. The atmosphere inside the restaurant is warm and friendly. I would come back and I highly recommend this restaurant.

The best Aulauf I have ever had. Actually the first Aulauf I have every had. I of course needed to buy a cookbook so I could return back to the States to make it here. It was a success and brought back memories of Marburg.

I found it by co-incidence (I was looking for some shelter form the cold). Its very cosy and very welcoming. Was packed with locals (a good sign). They had a vast menu at reasonable prices. I ate the Tortellini casserole, wise choice trust me :) Waiters were very polite and knew there work. I would recomend it to anyone!

Located a few meters from the Rathaus (City Town Hall), at the Oberstadt from Marburg, the Bistro Early is one of the best options to eat the typical "Auflauf". If you are visiting the city during the summer, don`t hesitate to seat outside. During the winter, the cozy interior is the best choice. With an excellent price (all pizzas, pastas,... More

Visited with a friend who was living in Marburg at the time. Try the auflauff; it is amazing! We were able to sit outside in the sunlight. Very relaxing atmosphere.
