“Great experience for us, right on the main square”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

This restaurant is right on the Marketplatz in the center of Rothenburg. We sat at an outside table for about 2 hours listening to live music in the square, eating food, people watching, and drinking the beer they serve. (Not sure what brand of local beer they were serving, but all the types were all very good and a cut above most of the other places.) As for the food, we were a group of 4 and everyone was very pleased with their meals. Our service over the course of those two hours was very good, both attentive and friendly. Finally, we thought the prices were pretty reasonable, particularly given the location.

“Reasonably Priced, Decent Food.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

This was an okay place to eat, but not the best in Rothenburg. The food is reasonably priced, but the service was not great. If you are looking for a simple down to earth meal, maybe you will like this place. But we ate at several other restaurants in Rothenburg that had comparable prices and much much better tasting food.

We also had dessert here, but I wish we would have saved our money and gotten dessert at a local bakery. It just wasn't as good as I hoped it would be.

“Good kitchen, reasonable prices.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2014

A typical Bavarian restaurant. located on Rothenurg's Market Square.
Outside dining allows you to overlook the pittoresque Market square.
Food is good and enough, servixce is good, prices are reasonable.

“Terrible and dangerous”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014 via mobile

We went into the restaurant for a glass of wine. The waiters we're very amiable and the decor was interesting. We decided to eat dinner and wished we had not stayed. We ordered a chicken salad with a balsamic dressing and French onion soup with a side of French fries. The soup was a very small portion, particularly for germanic sizes. That was ok as the soup tasted like a stock cube at best and had very little onion present. The worst part was the obviously undercooked, 'raw' chicken on the salad that was drowning in sweet balsamic dressing. The salad was sent back to the kitchen and we were asked of we wanted a new salad made. We replied that no we did not want a new one and a few minutes later a new salad was brought out. When we asked for the bill the waiter seem surprised we didn't eat the salad and when we said we didn't a) want it and b) it had too much dressing the waiter replied that they had told the kitchen staff multiple times to go easy on the dressing.to.no effect. We also had issues with paying by card due to their machine even after they implied it was our cards and it was proved to be them not us. We can't even claim a language barrier as one of the waiters was American

“Great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2014

This is a fantastic restaurant. Not only was the food really excellent but this was matched by the really friendly staff who were more than happy to recommend both food and accompanying drink.
