Veltter’s has the best Schweinshaxe in Heildelberger. The restaurant is very typical German, here you will find the most popular german dishes such as Schweinshaxe, tiroler, rostbratwürstchen, schnitzel.... service is amazing, you won’t have to wait to be seated and to get a beer to...your table. The beers are brewed in house which make even more special. Price is great for the portions you will get and what I love the most the building is old and the deco is very traditional. Also to acknowledge the reviews below I am not sure how you would wait 20 minutes for a menu as all the menus are layout on every table. I give 10 out 10, I would definitely recommend the place.More

You know that German restaurant image you have in mind? This is the restaurant. Is what I am picturing when I read the old German stories with snow , fire, beer and food. The restaurant was recommended by the hotel reception ( we stay at...NH Heidelberg) and we decided to follow the recommandation. The setup is nice, 1 min walk from the bridge and inside you discover that Oktoberfest atmosphere you look for when you visit Germany. The food was average, with a small plus for the Goulash soup who was good. The beer they made in-house is also average and, overall if I add the location, the setup, food and drink, plus a service where is better to speak German if you want to eat, I will say the experience was very good. BUT this experience is ours and I suggest you set your expectations when you go there: German experience, not 1 start Michelin :-)More

We stopped here after our walk along the Philosophenweg and had a small meal (white sausages) and excellent beer. The price was very reasonable. I don't usually drink beer, but made an exception here! And I am glad I did.

1. Me and my friends, we do this often. We take a couple of bottles of beer, have a great time near the Neckar and then later in the evening come back and return the bottles to get our deposit back. 2. I also highly...recommend the food 3. Once the waiter was a bit pushy with the tips. But I have seen this trend in several restaurants in Altstadt unfortunately.More

The atmosphere is very friendly, people can seat on the same table beside each other and having beer or food. The beer was really good, specially the light one. Decoration is nice, and teh food is good. I orderd the Deer sausage and I love...it. Definitely I'll come back to try other choices.More

The food, the service, ambiance and location all combine to make Vetter’s a great choice in Heidelberg. We shared appetizers and sausage and cabbage entree. Portions were very generous. The house red wine was excellent, as was the dessert, strudel. Service was attentive and friendly....Highly recommend!More

We visited on December 8th 2019 for an early dinner. Food and atmosphere were great. The service was wonderful and in a great location in Old Town. Would highly recommend this restaurant if you are looking for authentic German food.
