The definition of "average"

Nice and friendly staff, but one seems to be waiting indefinitely until something happens... (And they don't know much about special dietary needs.) Lovely "Fachwerk" house, but there are others in the region... Temptingly advertised food, but it ultimately comes out crude... In all, an average... read more

Nice and friendly staff, but one seems to be waiting indefinitely until something happens... (And they don't know much about special dietary needs.) Lovely "Fachwerk" house, but there are others in the region... Temptingly advertised food, but it ultimately comes out crude... In all, an average experience at accordingly average prices. Good for a quick lunch or simple dinner.

Location is very nice. Historical place. Selection of food and drinks is ok. Quality is average. A place for tourists.

If you’re looking for traditional Thuringian food and good Köstrizer Schwarzbier (13.90€), this is your place. The restaurant is darkly lit, for me a perfect setting to consume typical German food (heavy, meaty) and drink good beer. The choice of the food is not extensive. We also had Schwartzbierbraten(14.90€), and sauerbraten rotkohl(14.90€). The Thuringian potato dumplings were tasty and are... More

We checked when the last service was as we were going to the opera. We got to the restaurant half an hour before the promised

We didn't have a reservation on a Friday night and were lucky to find a couple of places free at a larger table; the restaurant was busy and obviously popular with locals. The menu was pretty much all traditional dishes from the region, the food was quite heavy with a big emphasis on meat and dumplings. Our meals came with... More

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.
