This restaurant is well located in the Old Town of Heidelberg and close to the famous Old Bridge. The menu is varied with good service and I really enjoyed the Mediterranean sheepsmilk cheese pan with olives, tomatoes and peppers which is good value at 12.50 Euros. What makes this restaurant special is the traditional decor which creates a relaxed atmosphere.

If you are starving that's the place you have to go ! Neither the decoration nor the waitress will make exceptional but the portions are huge and it's pretty good. Nothing exceptional but it will make it for a good lunch break !

In the pedestrian zone, a very nice and rustic restaurant with an excellent menu. Service is always good, and I never walk away from a meal here unsatisfied. Definitely on my "return to" list!

Went with friends who promised us a treat and we weren't disappointed! Waitresses with dirndl skirts and the ability to carry quite a few beer glasses without spilling anything was a sight to behold. We sat out on the pavement and enjoyed the banter going on round us. Great theatre and great food.

This famous Altstadt restaurant will give you a delicious idea of German cuisine prepared and presented well. My daughters ordered pea stew, it came with sausages that looked like hot dogs, and they gobbled it right up. Superb! We had good German beer. The entrees were outstanding - wiener schnitzel, pork schnitzel, and some kind of German lasagne. Huge portions,... More

This restaurant is located in the heart of the tourist area in the Old Town, on the pedestrianised road leading to the picturesque old bridge. As such one might expect that this would be a tourist-trap venue, with prices to match, but as it turned out the prices were very reasonable, and the food very good. An attractive traditional dark...

The restaurant we wanted to eat at was closed. We stumbled across Hackteufel and decided to give it a try. Wonderful service and reasonable prices. The chanterelle mushroom soup was great. My son loved the sausages and the sauerkraut dish was a hit. Overall, we really liked all the dishes and felt it was a good value. Would definitely recommend.

We relied upon TripAdvisor reviews to select this place and I hate to report we did not have a good meal. Folks were nice, the place is very cute and traditional, and it is centrally located, but in a nutshell, our meal was bad. We each had different but popular German meals - this was around 1:30 in the afternoon... More

Got the recommendation from a local and did not disappoint! Great sampling of German cuisine. Wonderful location. Could watch the walking traffic on the bridge over the river that Heidelberg sits on when sat outside. Area is in right in the middle of everything. Quick, nice service and delicious food.
