When you're not in a hurry

This is a very nice restaurant for its typical German interior, for its typical German menu, for the overall atmosphere. If you think about having something on the go, don't even consider this place since service goes from slow to very slow to incredibly slow. I think very slow is the standard. But... read more

The argentinian steak is the best of the menu, the rest is cheap, low quality food. Bier is fantastic though, so are the spirits. More of a drinking place than a good cuisine.

The venue - great. The historic decoration of the restaurant - impressive. The food was somewhat bland and run-of-the-mill. Stick with beer and pretzels -you cant go wrong with that.

We loved the location, being able to sit outside in the main square. The food was, however, only of average quality. The choice was rather limited. I had the recommended spare ribs which came "naked" and accompanied by a side bowl with tomato salsa (supposedly spicy...). The best part was the local draught beer. By the way, they do a... More

The food at Knochenhauer Amtshaus is excellent, especially the 'Bratkartoffeln' are deliciously crisp. The service is quick, the staff are very friendly and helpful and having a meal on the terrace surrounded by the beautifully restored historic buildings on the Market square of Hildesheim is pure heaven.

We had reservation for 5 people. We were seated at a table where there were only room for 4 adults. Sat for 30 minutes without anybody to serve us. Finally got the servers attention and got a new table. We ordered food and drinks, and food arrived before our drinks. Food was ok but menu very touristy.

Seemed pretty touristy at first but we were tourist. I ordered Schnitzel with mushrooms and it was good. My husband ordered Schnitzel with camembert cheese and cranberries and it was heavenly.

We have been in a big group visiting the Restaurant in the evening. Reservation was done and our group was placed on the second floor. A buffet was offered to us with several options ( cold and warm ). The service is OK and the people take care about you. The food was OK but surprisingly "nothing special" or "regional".... More
