“stereotypically German”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

This is a huge place, lots of tour groups come here to eat. I don't find the food to be special, I'd rather eat somewhere smaller, more local. The staff dresses in old-style costumes, and the food is sausages + potatoes type food. But if you want to take a photo of yourself in a stereotypical place, this could be it.

“Hot spot in Nuremberg!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

We dined here on our last night in the city. It was a fun way to end our trip! Beautiful and historic location in old town. Fun atmosphere. Wonderful service. Food was delicious and served very quickly. Pork shoulder was amazing, wiener schnitzel also great. Variety of dishes to choose from, not just German. Fills up quickly, make a reservation. Definitely must go!

“Perfect service and tasty food in historic place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

We chose this restaurant for our last dinner in Nurnberg before we left. As Toy Fair already finished and I guess most of participants already left we thought of getting a table without reservation, and we did! We had quite nice table close to the window (though we didn't see anything as it was dark outside) but still had a chance to enjoy some pictures and details of the restaurant. The service was perfect and without delay, food was very tasty - we took starters (goose liver, fried cemember with cream-berry sauce) and main dishes (schnitzel and braised beef) and I should say that was too big for me so if you can't eat much ask for advice of a waiter about the dish size :) Total for food with 5 beers we paid 60 euros (dinner for 2).
Very good location and as this building is a historic one either going to restaurant or already after you can enjoy the fabulous view standing on the bridge.

“Lovely Restaurant on Christmas Eve”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

Heilig Geist Spital was one of the only restaurants open in Nuremberg on Christmas Eve. Luckily we booked a few weeks in advance because when we arrived there was a long queue of patrons waiting to get a table.
Although the restaurant was very loud the ambiance was just amazing. We sat in this restaurant for over 4 hours enjoying the beer, wine and amazing food!
There was a special Christmas menu available, but one was also allowed to order from their normal menu which we found ideal.
The best dish, in my opinion, was the deep-fried Camembert cheese with cranberry sauce starter!
The only issue we had was that the waitress was a bit cold and blunt, however in her defense she had a huge amount of tables to tend to, and she was working on Christmas Eve (which is unheard of for most Germans!).

“Mixed Experience”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

Although my Sauerbraten was very dry, others in our group enjoyed their meals, especially the Apple Fritters for dessert. They were the best apple dessert of our two week trip in Nuernberg and Prague. The waiter offered to replace my sauerbraten immediately and returned to say that he and the kitchen agreed totally that it was overcooked, and brought me a free glass of wine to make up for the error. Very traditional german menu and atmosphere.
