Firstly, like other contributors, I don't understand the negative reviews. If you don't like the local food then stick to the well known hamburger outlets. Local food is served exactly as expected. I chose the Saurbraten (meat marinaded in vinegar for a few days before braising). It was accompanied by the usual red sauerkraut. Great banter with the waitress and... More

We looked into Lonely Planet and picked this establishment. We were not disappointed. The food was simple but well cooked and very tasty. The bonus for me was that there was a wide choice of local beers available. The service was exemplary, always a smile and help with my rusty German. Wife thoroughly enjoyed her snit zeal dish and can't... More

Were the writers of the negative reviews and I thinking of the same restaurant? Admittedly, German waiters/waitresses are not given to the same, "Hi! I'm Brandi and I'm going to be your server tonight! Whillikers!" approach that we're used to in the US, but the women who served us were professional. As for the food, the pork cutlet (Schweineschnitzel Wienart)--about... More

Don't recognise the negative reviews. On a chill October night, we had a warm smiling welcome, almost instant and generous portions of Eisbein and Matjes with excellent local draught beer. And the place was already packed with jolly groups of locals, many of course playing cards.

The service was so bad we left and found another restaurant. The drinks came after 20 minutes and the first course after about 45 minutes. That was enough for us.

Zum Sternia seems to believe they are doing their customers a large favor! They should be closed down by the town for their lack of professionalism. Prison grade food served to a large group of tourists from Uniworld! You must sit down, shut up and eat what they tell you. No questions asked. Enter at your own risk!

Of the several bad restaurants we encountered in Germany this was the worst. From the plates of tasteless, unseasoned, ground beef patties (called meatballs) to the over vinegarized potato salad , it was all bad. The staff was rude and slow except when they passed by our table flinging down the plates with a clatter. The whole experience was dreadful.... More

The most miserable food, the most miserable service, the most miserable food experience I have ever experienced in all my more than frequent travels around the world.

Hard to understand why this restaurant is still operating as the whole dining experience is terrible. Just don't go to this restaurant.

We had a group lunch at this restaurant which was awful. The service was slow, the staff were rude, the food was dreadful. We along with most of the group left and went down the street to have a lovely dessert.
