This fantastic place is all about delicious, traditional cuisine and a warm welcome. The couple who run the restaurant are a brilliant team: him in the kitchen, whipping up old-school German fare that will leave you stuffed to the gills but hungry for more; and her, front of house, making sure everyone is happy and comfortable. Rathausgloeckel hasn't the glamour of some of the other great restaurants in Baden Baden, but that's a good thing. Its home-from-home vibe is perfectly in keeping with the food you imagine the best German grandmothers still delight their children and grandchildren with. Highlights? The smoked salmon and smoke trout starter is delicious (and they even made me a special starter of smoked trout and potato salad brought alive by the liberal use of creamy horseradish and a little chopped onion), the sauerbraten (beef braised with vinegar and served with noodles and fresh vegetables) and, for dessert the plum parfait or the traditional apple tart, which were more akin to the three loveliest doughnuts you've ever had, with delicious light dough encasing a perfectly cooked ring of apple and topped off with cinnamon and sugar and served with a ball of vanilla ice cream. If you love German food then this is HIGHLY recommended.
