The location is ideal, no doubt. Sunny outside seating on the Münsterplatz, just opposite the tower. Menu is composed of local dishes. We had Salad and Maultaschen. This was absolutely ok but not excellent. For example, there was gravy on the Maultaschen vs the traditional broth. The salad had a ready to use dressing. Price is ok. Service very friendly.

If Paradise were a place on earth, it would have been here! I have never seen so many angels (golden or else) in all my life! The decoration of tis restaurant is impressive, especially as we approach Christmas. Apart from the atmosphere, which I find equally important as the dishes themselves in any restaurant, food quality and quantity were also... More

This looked a great place from outside, they found us a table for 4, then took a while to serve us, but they were busy. The waiter can go take our order then walked off halfway through as one of the party hadn't quite decided. Wine arrived, very nice, but then it went downhill. The food arrived and was literally...

We visited here twice, if I'm honest the second time was as we didn't find an English menu at the other eateries around the Munster square. Food here is pretty good, it's a great location too with the pavement tables in the Munster square and inside if weather is inclement. They seemed to go on serving new customers pretty much... More

One of a host of restaurants next to the cathederal the decor is quirky and if cherubs are your thing then it is for you. Cheerful staff and whilst it was relatively busy you will wait a bit longer than expected.

After getting checked into the Hotel we made our way through Freiburg looking for a place to eat. One of the locals gave us directions to the Munsterplatz. The Goldener Engel had outdoor seating, and was just posting their afternoon special of fresh Spargel. We decided it was the place we wanted to stop and eat. Staff was friendly, food... More

Right at the Munsterplatz. I ordered salad and sausage. The salad was awesome. The dressing of the salad was very delicious. Also the sausage was great. We also had fried pork which was quite delicious too. The waiter was a very kind guy.

Visited Freiburg on a very cool Sunday/holiday. Surprised to read other negative reviews as we had a good experience. Service, while not overly friendly, was prompt and certainly not rude. I had lentils, spaetzles and sausage. Very good but a huge serving. My husband had the schnitzel. Two huge pieces with a delicious salad and fries. Cozy atmosphere, surrounded by... More

We - my wife and I - often go eat there and always stay on the "safe" side: a draft beer to drink, a mixed salad and "flammkuche" to eat. It is simple, fast, tasty and reasonably priced. Service (two waiters) are not pleasant, but since I know this, I make a point of switching off and ignore their moody... More
