“Good Fish Restaurant Choice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013

This restaurant is within a short walk from the Mercure Hotel and we had dinner there last night based on TripAdvisor reviews. We were not disappointed and enjoyed the fresh fish and cozy atmosphere. The clientele appears to be primarily local and it was fun to watch the staff interact with regular customers. Prices are what you would expect of a fresh fish restaurant and were not unreasonable. Recommended.

“my favorite freshwater fish restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2010

Schiffbauerin is in the first floor of a half-timbered house not far from the Alte Bruecke over the Main River. Patrons are seated in wood-lined booths distributed in three rooms, at least one of which has vaulted ceilings. The decor is old European with crisp white table linen and a few antiques associated with fish and fishing history. When my husband and I first started coming here with friends, we all had the pan-fried Saibling (European mountain trout or char) with sliced almonds. Delicious! Later we tried the Zander (pike perch) and Hecht (pike). But, for us the steamed Waller (catfish) is the very best, and if it is available, we are not tempted by anything else. Our friends have also been converted eventhough they did love their Saibling with almonds. To order the Waller, you need at least two people to share its delicate lucious flesh. The proprietor filets it at the table placing the cheek at the top of each plate for the first helpings (no cheek for the second plates). The steamed fish is served with boiled potatoes, drawn butter, fish broth, and horseradish whipped cream. As a starter my husband enjoys the house's fish soup, but I save myself for the main course and start with a small salad of Feldsalat (mache). To accompany the food, we always choose a dry Sylvaner from Iphofen, served in the traditional Roemer goblets with ribbed stems. We visit Wuerzburg as often as we can. This restaurant is our special occasion restaurant.
One other plus is that you don't have to go up or down stairs to reach the restrooms.
