“Very enjoyable experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013 via mobile

Good food (my spouse had rahmschnitzel and I had rehschnitzel) that was reasonably priced, and the atmosphere was wonderful. Cozy and full of people clearly enjoying themselves, their food and their company. The epitome of Gemütlichkeit! I would love to go there again.

“Great restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013 via mobile

This is a really good German restaurant with a pleasant welcoming atmosphere and delicious food. Its located in the Altstadt, and is a great spot for lunch or dinner, whether you have been sightseeing or shopping in one of Freiburg's plentiful boutiques and department stores.

“Bustling, competent restaurant.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012 via mobile

I've had the pleasure of eating here several times on business trips recently.
Entering from the cobbled Freiburg streets, via heavy studded oak door and velvet drapes, you come across a busy, competent restaurant selling very reasonably priced German food. The regular menu is limited to the usual lentil and sausage soups, schnitzels and ham and potato salads found in German restaurants. All of these are served in hearty portions (beware the large schnitzel is about a kilo) and are German food at its simple best. To keep interest, there is both a daily special menu and a seasonal menu, which makes the most of what the Black Forest has to offer per season. The venison schnitzel with sour cherry sauce, creamed cabbage and roast potatoes I tried last time earned the waitress who recommended it a big tip!

Food is obviously the major factor in a restaurant, but I should mention the ambience here too. Despite a whole floor dedicated to tables (there are rooms downstairs for theatre and other events) people often have to double up and share tables, such is the popularity of the place. This is always good natured and new arrivals can mean bit of jiggling around during your meal. This leads to a very social and informal eating experience which I highly recommend.
