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.

It's a great choice to have German food . Portions are big and very good . It is open all day which helps when you are a tourist . You need to save room the apple strudel it's the best I have ever tried . English and Spanish speaking . Very friendly staff . Excellent location

3 people went, all different dishes. None "bad" but not recommended. Overly salted and not good quality meat. Edible but I'd rather spend a bit more and eat something good. Go to the Schnitzelhuis, it's way way better!!!
