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

The flagship restaurant in this very fine hotel convenient to the town center. The decor recreates a Baden /Black Forest atmosphere with lots of dark wood. It makes for a very peaceful, calm atmosphere. Food is excellent, France inspired with German portion sizes. We tried their seasonal menu for lunch and were nicely surprised by every dish - excellently prepared... More

A high quality meal on our first night in Freiburg. Its a fine dining experience with service and prices to match. We enjoyed it but it is expensive and it would be difficult to eat here every evening.

This was a disappointment. My dinner was good but due to a breakdown in communication my husband didn't get what he ordered. He did got what we consider an appetizer and we should have realized something was wrong when I got my meal and he didn't. When we spoke to the head waiter, he felt bad but didn't really apologize.... More

Lobster and pigeon both were excellent. Good advice for a small bottle of burgundy. Champagne by the glass served from a magnum bottle which I think tastes better. The interior decoration of heavy woodcraft might well need a more modern interpretation. Nice to see how the staff has close relations with regular guests. Certainly a place to come back to.
