Description: The Fauststube restaurant in the Hotel zum Löwen in Staufen, was once home to the legendary Doctor Johann Georg Faustus, and today is a gourmet-restaurant. In the centre of the historical old part of town, the chef here welcomes his guests with a fine selection of regional specialities. To add a bit of variety, there is an ever-changing daily menu, seasonal offerings, and last, but not least, the ?Espuma-Menu?. Those who like something extraordinary can have a go themselves in the molecular-kitchen. To round off the culinary delicacies, you can try a specially selected wine from the wine cellar. When the weather is good, you can also take in the historical atmosphere of Steufen outside on the sun terrace. For those who need to work, the Hotel zum Löwen offers a W-LAN internet connection.

“Great meal in a great restaurant in a great town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

What a delightful find this restaurant was! It was getting late, and although we sat outside, it became colder quickly. Before we could finish asking to be seated inside, the girl kindly picked up our menus and said we had a lovely table inside. Indeed we did. The interior of this restaurant is beautifully decorated. The food was outstanding. Fresh onion bread with quality balsamic, delicious entrees. Fork tender beef, horseradish cream sauce, fresh spinach, potatoes. Traditional German food prepared to perfection. We highly recommend.

“Delicious!”

Every dish at the table was delicious and the staff was most helpful in helping us with the menu which was only in German.

“Wow! so many delicious meals!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2010

While staying at a conference, we ate dinner out each night. Once we tried the zum Lowen Fauststube, we ate no where else. Each night we tried a different dish, with the expertly translated reading of the menu. Over the course of a week I tried; pumpkin soup, carrot ginger soupl, semolina dumplings in creamy chanterelle sauce, green salad with roasted turkey trips, Ox Tail in horseradish cream sauce, duck breast salad with goose livers as well as a couple desserts. Everything was exquisitely prepared, fresh and a sensorial delight. The staff was remarkably helpful.
