Are here last year and was really impressed! I was expecting something a lot more rough and ready! Had the caprese schnitzel which was excellent! Well worth a visit!

Never go there by yourself, even the smallest course is too much. Taste is not great but it's OK. In order to reach to this restaurant you should have a car. Waiters are kind and doing their job perfect. You can only pay cash.

There is an email that has been circulating for years with photos of massive hamburgers and schnitzel. If you are looking for that place - this is it. From the Frankfurt airport - we took a taxi. It was 36E to get there and 43E to get back. That's expensive - but the restaurant is well worth it. If you... More

The food here is great and very home made, calorific I think too but hey it's yummy. The staff are friendly and went out their way to ensure our daughter got a little something which I requested out of the norm. They also suggested a quite place where we could park the pram but still keep an eye on our... More

I love eating challenges. I love the novelty of huge portions. This restaurant is the best big food restaurant I have ever been to. The 1kg schnitzels and ribs, the 30cm diameter burger and the 600g currywurst. THIS PLACE IS THE BEST. Even the ice cream is incredible. 3 huge scoops (looks like three tubs of B&J's. The staff were... More

Last year, in September I did a long trip in west Europe including Germany. I have been before few times but never I heard about this place. The place is a little hide between Stuttgart and Baden Baden in a forest, a wonderful and very quit place. You must look for a little the place but at the end, MERIT.... More

We had been at this place a couple of years ago and the meals were very good. Even the large portions are too much to eat. The menu is wide and varied. The place is always busy and you really should make a reservation. The staff are friendly an helpful. The Schnitzels are something else but be prepared to ask... More

We arrived on a very busy Saturday evening, without a reservation. However, the host realised that we arrived especially to eat there, and a table was quickly found. The service was really attentive and good, The waitress spoke very good English, not so common in Germany, we found out. The food was as we expected, very big, yet tasty and... More

Waldgeist is on the you must visit restaurants in Germany. The food is good and everything is just extra large. Staff speaks English and it is a great place to enjoy a huge Schnitzel, Hamburger and cold 2 liters beers. I always go for either Jagger Schnitzel or Gorgonzola Schnitzel. I highly recommend it especially if you live in the... More
