Definitely not a Michelin star level restaurant. Good food but too pricey for quality. At the end of the meal I wondered whether I'd been better off with a putenschnitzel at half the price on Main Street. Nothing bad but I would not return.

Serve was unobtrusive. We just had to look at the waiter and he would come right over to our table! We asked for a white white on the sweet side, they only showed dry ones on the wine list. "Just a moment", the waiter said and a minute later he returned with a beautiful white wine - not dry -... More

There are a couple of Michelin star restaurants in the area, but we decided to go to this one instead and were very happy with our decision (it's actually a "bib gourmand" — which means its recommended by Michelin judges for a more budget-conscious eater). The atmosphere isn't too imposing or fancy, while still being very nice. The service is... More

5 points for the location, you are in the heart of the old town. it's a pain to park your car if you come on Saturday midday and you didn't reserve your spot at the hotel. So better do so, as we lost 45 min to find a parking place. The hotel was very nice, simple, but clean, room bigger... More

There are two Michelin one-star restaurants in Heidelberg, and this one, which is a bib gourmand. They earned it. The service is superb - they anticipate everything, and stay out of the way. And the food is interesting, extremely well-prepared, and there is enough variety to accomodate vegetarians too (which, alas, cannot be said of the Michelin-starred restaurants). The price... More

We ate with several colleagues and all of us came out quite satisfied. The food is well prepared and served with modern appearance but still very tasty and local. I suggest the pumpkin soup and the duck. If you still have room, try the house dessert mix, it is delicious.

The restaurant food was based on nice products (lie asparagus in season) and everything was tasty, but the prices are high and the restaurant would gain by being a little less

This restaurant is attached to the Gasthaus Backmunde so eating here on our arrival after a long plane trip and a bus ride seemed an easy choice. We are very glad we did. It is no surprise that this restaurant is a Michelin bib as the service and the food were superb. Accomodations for the gluten free diner were no... More
