“Wonderful food and very nice staff!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

On thing about Nurnberg is that everything closes after 2:00 p.m. on Christmas Eve. So when on Christmas Day my husband & I went walking around the inner city, everything was closed. We went to look at the churches and the famous fountain. We were getting hungry on our walk up the the castle and we just happened to stumble upon this little restaurant. (Located between the Fountain and the hill leading up to the castle). What luck! It was not only open, but the food was delicious, traditional Franconian food. Our waitress was Suzie. She told us that we should try the traditional Holiday dishes of goose and pork. We did just that. It was delicious. We loved the food so much that we made reservations to come back for dinner with our two older sons. That evening the proprietor Gerhardt helped us order as the menus are in German. Our waitress was Chris (she originally is from Greece). We again had a wonderful meal of potato soup, and bratwurst sausages. My sons order the goose and chicken schnitzel. For dessert we shared an apple strudel. Again, the meals were hearty and delicious. Not to mention, the beer was good too! This restaurant was very reasonable.

The only thing that a tourist should get used to is waiting, especially for the bill. Sit down in this lovely, rustic, pub-like restaurant and relax. If you are in a hurry, this is not the place for you.
