“Heilig Geist Spital”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

This quaint little restaurant is located in an area called the Hospital of the Holy Spirit. Do not be put off by that. And don't give up because it is easy to walk right past and miss it. It is worth the hunt. Inside the historic old building is a cozy little courtyard filled with blooming flowers and small groups gathered around outdoor tables. Inside is more formal but the outdoor dining scene was lively on a pleasant August night. The service is attentive in a crisp and business-like way. Questions are asked and answered without a lot of chatter or amplification. The Nürnberger tiny bratwurst were very good. They come in orders of 6, 9 or 12. My server suggested a 50/50 of kraut and potato salad which, along with the hearty brown bread made a full and seemingly authentic Franconian meal.

“I was assaulted by a waiter here”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

Visited this restaurant as part of a group, so had little choice in the matter. On the way in to our tables, I was struck in the back by a waiter, who literally elbowed me out of his way, as he barked aus dem Weg! On sitting down, we waited for some time for service. We asked a waiter for some soft drinks - he just shrugged his shoulders and walked away. We asked a second waiter for some soft drinks - he said he was too busy, ask someone else! Eventually, we were served with some food, more reminiscent of school dinners than anything else. Greasy undercooked sausages, luke warm watery sauerkraut. Not a good experience. Had I not been part of a group, I would have taken the matter of the assault further.

“Pleasant atmosphere, plain German food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

While today's Germans have gotten away from the heavy German meals that many of us have grown accustomed to and enjoyed as German Americans, you still have an opportunity to enjoy excellent sauerkraut and sausages at this restaurant. The dirndl-clad servers, who can carry enormous quantities of beer steins at one time, are friendly and patient with visitors. The interior, while dark, is very typical of German restaurants of an earlier era. The Nurnberger sausages were a treat, reminding Americans that not all sausages taste the same. The restaurant is conveniently located off the main square.

“The best tipical restaurant in Nuremberg”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

Located in the historic center of the city, the restaurant was a hospital during the war. The building is one of the most known post cards of Nuremberg. Nice decoration, friendly people and good service. Besides the Bavarian food, there you can have a Franconian menu what's tipical from Nuremberg. Taste te fried camembet, the famous grilled Nuremberg sausages, the pork shoulder with potato dumpling. Desert apple strudel.
