Gemütlich und lecker. The restaurant is darkly lit which some might find off-putting but it makes for a more intimate setting. I like the German system of placing random people at large tables together where friendly conversations can strike up. The food is quite good - hearty fare with the famous Thuringian dumplings. I had the sauerbraten. Good food at... More

We went in here but only had a beer as it was very busy with tour groups. My husband enjoyed his beer but I didn't like the ambience. The service was adequate

I was brought to this restaurant while on a work training course. A large number of the course delegates attended the dinner which did not pose a problem to the staff. The food was very good, if not a little unknown to me due to it being very heavily influenced by the region. However while I may not have been... More

It was a wet Monday and the first two restaurants we were aiming for were closed. We didn't want Italian or Indian - plenty of those back in London -so we wandered into this restaurant on spec and we were very pleased. A pleasant atmosphere, friendly service and good honest German food. The English menu was suspiciously different from the... More

Not posh but excellent food and nice people. The food is local and traditional and good value. The service was perfect and if I have time we will go back.

Nice restaurante serving traditional Thuringian food and the delicious Köstrizer Schwarzbier. Ambience is nice; prices are ok. It is usually very sought-after, so it is a good idea to make a reservation. Those who don´t have a reserved table might be seated in large, communitary tables. Not a problem for us, but might not be usual or comfortable for some.... More

My wife and I have been many times at Köstritzer Schwarzbierhaus. Apart from the folkloristic building and, of course, the appealing Köstritzer beer, we always eat well. Service is fast and attentive. The choice of the food is not very large. However nearly everything is delicious. Typical German food, you may have tasty and very fresh salads, or go for... More

Even with reservation, I did not like being seated in a glass add-on dining area that had zero atmosphere. While locals can be seen there, it is popular with tourists. The food was so-so, the service the same; the beer was good, but it is good in many places; overall, it had little to distinguish itself.

Ate here twice on on recent visit to Weimar. Nice welcoming atmosphere in an old half timbered building in the centre. The food is excellent-including the tenderest steak I have ever eaten. Food portions are large, typical Geman menu-prices are reasonable.

Outside you will be in northern, middle Germany; inside you will be amongst a collection of jazz photos and memorabilia that could be just about anywhere. I love jazz, and many of the pieces in the collection appealled to me. But on my first trip to Weimar, I wish I'd picked a place that felt more Weimarian. A msall complaint,... More
