“A Special Place with Wonderful Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

This was our overall favorite place to dine in Rothenberg. In the evening the place is lit only by candles, which give a soft but adequate light. The wood paneled interior is an atmospheric take on the winestube tradition. Food here is exceptional in terms of quality of ingredients and preparation. Get and map and make a reservation!

“Tuesdays now closed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

After a long day visiting Nuremburg by train we were looking forward to an evening meal here. However this Summer the hotel has introduced closing on Tuesdays so we couldn't to our disappointment. Have had to mark average to submit this so readers are aware of the closure.

“Good, but could have been better”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012

If you want to eat in this restaurant you will need to reserve a table, as it is extremely busy, mainly with locals. The dining rooms are candle lit and quite dark, but there is a good atmosphere in the place. We were all disappointed with our meal of tenderloin pork, as it was overcooked and not as tender as it should have been. However, the rest of the meal was excellent, and the salad was top class. The service was prompt, but a smile would have helped.

“Nice homey atmosphere at Altfrankische Weinstube”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

We ate dinner here when we were tired- having just arrived in Europe. Tasty food. Most delicious salad dressing- full of herbs.
