The restaurant serves one of the best food you can taste! It's like being a Bavarian! The beer is also tasty! We liked it so much that we ended up going there twice! The portions are huge, so if you don't eat much you can share!

It was fine I guess, but nothing to write home about. Nowhere near being on the top of the German food chain as far as restaurants are concerned. I got the turkey slices with Spaetzle....it was average. Considering the reviews, I thought it was going to be great, but it just wasn't. Took a while for the waitress to get... More

Visited with family while staying in Heidelberg. We tried a bit of everything. We were two adults and three children (11, 9 and 7). Probably we could have ordered just four dishes and it would have been enough. The food was on time, tasty and the waiter extremely friendly. She spoke English, French and understood a little Italian. We also... More

Had a wonderful late lunch/early dinner (at 3 p.m. had nearly the entire restaurant to myself). Tasty cheese/noodle dish and an excellent fresh salad. A local brew to top it off. Reasonably priced.

My husband and I found this restaurant on Trip Advisor and it lives up to the ratings. I ordered a salad and it was true German big fresh salad, amazing. My husband ordered the house specialty the pork knuckle, I was picking off his plate because it was so so good! It did get very crowded so if you can... More

The first choice for me in Heidelberg as I'd heard how good the beer was, so I expected big things from the food too. It can get very busy with large parties turning up, but the very professional waitresses seem to be able to cope with pretty much anything. The Jubilaumsbier is first class, and we had this with our... More

The staff at Palmbrau Gasse was welcoming and friendly even for large groups. They patiently handled our large order and ensured that every person was happy. The group had a variety of burgers and pizzas all of which were delicious. While we at burgers and pizza, there is a large variety of options available.

Traditional German fare done well. It feels like you're in a stone basement in the downstairs bar area which is fun. 4 tap beers and more in bottles. The slaw was excellent. Schnitzel "weiner Art" com Schwein was authentically done. The service is typical of Germany--not rushed but responsive as needed. A fun place to catch a game downstairs and... More
