Was looking for a light lunch after arriving and hotel recommended Vetter's Brewery. Had the beef goulash soup and the local sausage with sauerkraut, and of course their own brewed beer. Great start to our visit in Heidelberg

What a great experience! Superb atmosphere from the moment we entered. The menu is full of delightful German food, it was so hard to choose ( but the dishes we chose were superb). And the beer - oh my goodness, absolutely fantastic. We particularly liked...the tasting board of 4 different beers. Highly recommendedMore

The wheat beer at this microbrewery in the old town is awesome. The 33* was listed as the world's strongest in the Guinness at some stage - it taste a bit like liquor. Good food and efficient service

We ate in this restaurant for dinner. The location is very cute and typical of the town. We took three different kind of beers and they were all excellent! They produce it themselves and a lot of clients go there just to buy beer and...take it home. The waitresses are young students and very kind. They speak english very well and are super quick in the service. I give a 4 stars because the food, which was average/good, wasn't as excellent as the beers. But i would definitely go there again!More

Great stop after a full day of exploring Heidelberg! Luckily with the heat we found a table outside and since it is on a side street it was completely shady with a nice cool breeze coming up the street. Beer was very good, food portions...and taste were more than I expected. I would go back again it was that good. Staff was extremely friendly and responsive.More

Unfortunately, I cannot share the recommendations of other guests. I experienced this restaurant a tourist trap as you can find it often in comparable places: medium quality at high prices and unfriendly service.

I used to like this restaurant a lot, but today the service was lousy. When our food arrived, the waitress dropped the gravy from one of the dishes on my and my partner's legs, her reaction was not to apologise immediately, but to ask if...it was hot (it was, of course...). She told her colleague to give us something "on the house", so we were hoping that the three of us would not be charged for drinks or something like that, but when the bill arrived we were charged for everything as if nothing had happened. On top of that, they also forgot my friends bread, which was included in her dish. At the end of dinner they did offer to give us other complimentary drinks, but after the bad experience we just wanted to finish our meal and go home.More

I stopped in this place based on number of reviews however I found that service was slow. They weren't busy and yet it took a few minutes to be seated and then again to order. We ordered tasting flights of which the waitress just dropped...off and walked away without describing the beers. I had to call someone over from the bar to ask what they were but he only took guesses which I thought odd that the bartender didn't recognize their product. The food was OK but again it took awhile to get the check. I regret having stepped foot in here and recommend other travelers take their chances on another dining establishment.More

Large menu so something for everyone. Look at the pictures for the variety we had, for only three people! They also had four brews to choose from. It was a tight fit and it got busy. Service was great and they took great care of...us. Gave us an English menu and took pity and spoke perfect English to us. Neat place to visit, good food, and yummy beer.More

A colleague recommended this place. We really liked the service, food and the beers of course. Prices were very reasonable. They have 2 places in same street. They have reserved a table for us in quiet one which I really liked it.

A friend recommended Vetters, and it was near our hotel so we gave it a try. They warned us that it would take about 45 minutes to get our food when we walked in and they were about right. The beer and Riesling wine were...both good! There wasn’t anything special about the pretzels, so skip those! Our schnitzel was good, as was the mushroom soup. Service was slow, though. We noticed that the English menu mentioned that Tip was not included in the price on the menu, the German menu didn’t say anything about a tip.More
