Very good. The wait staff was attentive, the food delicious without being pretentious or overly experimental, and the wine selection generous and not overwhelming. I would highly recommend as this is an affordable Michelin option!

We organised a family birthday event. We were all delighted by the quality of the dishes and the professional service. The portions, in spite of the high level of complexity, were also generous. If you take the proposed menus you cannot make it wrong. It's also value for money. We'll be back soon!

We recently ate at Zirbelstube, and I can honestly say that could contend for the finest meal that I've ever had. We opted for the tasting menu, which was 9 courses ranging from strawberry foie gross to venison with chocolate sauce. I was quite impressed in that I usually find many of these neo-gastro dishes to be all show and... More

If you like a fancy atmosphere I would recommend this restaurant. However the taste of food has nothing much to do with the price...

This is German hospitality and gourmet food at it's best. The french insprired kitchen serves culinary highlights. Spargel ( white aspergus) in season , Kidneys or a local Fish from a lake, you can rarely eat better in Germany. Extensive winelist. This is an expensive restaurant and rightfullyy so. Quality has it's price. Eveything is cooked to order. A sophisticated... More

We visited Freiburg in mid December during the busy Christmas Market season. It was a welcome break from all the noise and crowds. This Michelin star restaurant is obviously a favorite place for the Germans from this region. We were the only Americans there. My wife had the seasonal mushroom soup, and it was wonderful. I had the venison special,... More

The restaurant has a michelin star and you can see why. The experience is quite formal, almost old-fashioned - by no means modern or trendy - from the dark wooden decor to the excellent service. The food is French with good sized portions. The wine card is pretty substantial, especially for the local Baden wines. Highly recommended.

Waited 1 hour for mains. Took 15 minutes to even get a drinks menu. Took 10 minutes to even get water. Food was all mixed up with some of the items being on the wrong plates. This happened to other tables too. Taste was OK but nothing amazing. Wait staff seemed nice but mixed up so many orders that we... More
