A nice, quite restaurant in the old city. The service was very friendly and fast. The small mixed salad was not fresh. The fish was O.K. The stake and veal were average.

The food was way below a normal standard, we got a plate without any garnish or gravy. The fish was too buttery and the potatoes without taste, and the portions were small. There was no garnisch, and the waitress did not mention to us there was no salad or veggies provided with the main dish. The price in addition was... More

I'd eaten at Elefanten 2-3 times before and was very satisfied, however it's taken a turn for the worse. The proprietors have changed and sadly so has the quality of the food.

The service is good and the food was very good indeed. Today I had a small mixed salad to start my meal, followed by a Zwiebelrostbraten mit Späzle, a beef steak with... More

The menu is pretty much what you'd expect from most of the local (German) restaurants, service was friendly enough but slow (we're still waiting for our bread nearly a week later!) and should you have a sweet tooth you'll be out of luck as desserts aren't served!

Feeling only a light hunger I decided to go for the regional Speciality pasta " Schwäbische Spätzle and Sauerbraten of Angus beef, a good selection as it proved to be. After a short wait the only but very friendly waiter brought a steaming plate generously loaded however without the "Kitsch" of decor with the most nice looking "Spätzle"gleaming with butter....

We visited on a rainy, miserable evening and it was really warm and welcoming. The waiter was very helpful and accommodating where we wanted to change vegetables and side dishes. It was a lovely setting and ambience.
