Delicious!

The food was just delightful. Just perfect. Oh, the tasty sauce, the juicy meat, the perfectly cooked asparagus... All served with a smile in beautiful surroundings. I do not know how the experience could have been any better!

Typical German menu, good food. I'm not a beer drinker so I have no comments on the beer selection. Lovely old historical decor and ambiance.

This Gasthaus is located on the main street on the center of Miltemberg, that is a nice town to visit. The restaurant is very nice and tipical, where you can taste good bavarian food and also their own beer, they are the oldest in that area. Service is good and pay attention to your request. Suggested for a romantic dinner... More

Our tour guide told us that Elvis Presley had a beer here while in the service. I don't know if it is true. While we had a (very good) beer here, we never actually went inside. Built in 1590, it is actually 424 years old. Great beer and unique style.

We went to the oldest pub in Germany (as early as mid-12th century) for the beer. I could not find a weak link in the entire beer menu of Faust beers. Even the Pilsner is authentic. If you are a beer fan, and happen to be anywhere near this part of the planet, then you need to hoist a pint... More

As part of a Viking River cruise tour, 6 of us decided to have some brew and wine at this historic old tavern full of character after a long day of sightseeing in beautiful little Miltenberg. Because of low river levels, we were being bussed to another town about an hour away. About 15 minutes after the bus left Miltenberg,... More

Erected in 1590 it was recently renovated by Faust Brewery. A 3-faced half-timbered multi coloured building. Definitely one of the best in Miltenberg. It has won first prize at a local architectural contest and not without reason. It's unique in style and retains the glamour of old times. The restaurant is inviting and friendly. You may even find a quiet... More

The oldest brew house in Miltenberg has the added distinction of having a side entrance patrons used to ride horses into. Sort of an early drive in. The other distinction is that Elvis had a beer here. The building is a work of art on the exterior and the interior a nice atmosphere of plank floor dark wood friendly staff... More

Read reviews of this place on Trip Advisor and decided to try it out. It was fantastic! We were there in the afternoon and sat outside to have a beer. It was soo good we decided to have a meal, but it was only 5 in the afternoon and meals weren't available until 6. We did then discover that they... More
