The restaurant is centrally located in the town and is very spacious. The dining area is very cozy. The staff provide a very warm welcome. Food portions are generous and perfect for those with a healthy appetite. The menu focuses on German food. The tables are well presented and clean. We really enjoyed our lunch here and would recommend it.

Palmbrau is a wonderful restaurant in the heart of the old city of Heidelberg. We had a late lunch here one afternoon and enjoyed it so much that we went back for an afternoon snack the next day. The menu has English in the back and our waiter (from Hungary) speaks very good English as well. I have to eat... More

Following reviews from Trip Advisor we selected the restaurant for lunch 2 families with 4 children and we had a very good time. Although very busy when we arrived management found a table for all 8 of us. Food was tasty and very authentic German. The best asset of the restaurant was the interior design and atmosphere but service was... More

We had a casual dinner. Went in without any preservation on a Friday evening. Service was good. Good beer and nice salad dishes.

We were on a river cruise and while we were in Heidelburg for the day this is where our group had lunch. What a perfect choice to enjoy a typical German meal. It was fun eating what felt like a dungeon downstairs. Our group was served pork schnitzel with spaetzel that was delicious. The waitress we had was friendly and... More

You might be worried, the location is right in tourist central. And I'm sure many of the customers are tourists (I was a tourist too...), but it's a genuinely good restaurant with fair pricing. The Eibauer (dark beer) was my personal favorite. We split a "pan" order of potatoes, pork, and steak, along with a larger salad. Plenty of food!

Historic restaurant in the centre of the old town in Heidelberg. Wonderful food, beer and atmosphere. Reasonable prices. Good service. English spoken. Pork knuckle is very large and sufficient for 2 people! Highly recommended.

At first glance, this would seem to be a "tourist trap". Big mistake. Both the food they serve and the beer they brew here are incredible. Their Palm beer is very, very good - the pils is quite malty and the weizen is very herby, two uncommon trends in these styles. I asked for a pork knuckle and they served... More

Amazing small restaurant in the heart of Old Town Heidelberg! Traditional German food at a reasonable price. The Schweinhaxen and sliced turkey in gravy sauce with spaetzle were both excellent. A great restaurant which I highly recommend!

Together with a delegation of Chinese ladies we went to this lovely restaurant right in the heart of Heidelberg. The service was super friendly and the food really great! In addition the atmosphere is very cozy. I highly recommend the pork knuckle, which was just too delicious! Made our evening perfect!

Thank Helislon
