We were served a menu that was supposed to be an updated version of what Goethe could have eaten there. Some original dishes and some above average. The red wine we were recommended and served was not good, find your own. Very good atmosphere, a bit slow service but friendly.

Ofcourse one is aware of Goethe, Schiller, Herder, Anna-Amalia, Frau von Stein, The wonderful Park at the river Ilm, the Bauhaus Weimar, Residenz castle and many more historical aspects like the Russian-Weimar link at times of the Zars, but dont you miss-out the lunch at the Gasthaus Zum Weissen Schwan. My strong recommendation is their Rostbrätel! This is offered at... More

Located in a very old but worthy hotel in the middle of the Old Town, this is a restaurant with very kind and efficient service, with an extensive menu. Our vegetarian courses were very tasty, with portions very (too) large. The matre d´ was very helpful. Well worth trying.

We sat on the terrace on a beautiful balmy evening and enjoyed a lovely traditional meal. Waiter was very helpful and gave us great advice. The food was absolutely delicious & well priced.

The Rinderroulade was perfectly cooked; you can eat it with just a fork and it was a wonderful blending of beef, onion, and bacon just as it is supposed to be, served with great red cabbage and perfect dumplings. The Wiener Schnitzel was thin, tender, and just lightly fried, and also barely needed a knife. Paired with some Saale-Unstrut wine,... More
