The pork schiznel and the spatzles were excellent. The mushroom sauce was delicious. The portions were very big and value for price paid was very good. Love the bread and the Black Forest cake. Great selection of beers. Service was excellent. Very busy restaurant and very loud.

So disappointed. This is a busy restaurant in a great location but the food we had was just awful. It was our first meal in Heidelberg and had such great expectations. It was such a let down. Food prepared and served just for the sake of it.

I had mostly beer for lunch and a snack, but the fries were exceptional, and who can beat the spot right under the bridge towers outside? The service was very friendly, though a little slow. I regret not getting the kaiserschmarm which the guy next to me had, it looked great!

Highly recommended for the good range of choices on the menu and everything we had was very tasty. The staff were also very friendly and willing to set up a new table for us, despite the fact that they were very busy. Also a picturesque location right by the old bridge.

Since we made reservations, we had a large table on the terrace with a great view of the bridge and river. Being in a very touristy area, it seemed that prices were high until we received our food--portions were huge! We got three schnitzels (rather than the normal two or one very large) which is among the best schnitzel I've... More

A huge disappointment ! The staff: unfriendly. We went there just to eat kaiserschmarrn . It took longer than previously announced and expected. The result? Simply bad. Ever had sweet omelette? That was it. Omelet with sugar. And establishment like that not knowing how to make a proper kaiserschmarrn? Very disappointing!

It's small so tricky for larger groups. But great for couples and small groups to just sit down and have a bite.

Superb authentic German foods (Rost Braten Zwiebel) and a view that can't be beat are among the highlights of dining here. As a bonus, prices were surprisingly reasonable.

This restaurant is in a very touristy area, the food and service reflect this. Good location next to the Old Bridge. Basic German food, service slow. Nice place to sit but don't go there for the food.

It seems that Goethe has been around. Typical German place for Schnitzel - lovers. Nothing gourmet, but pretty nice. Good food.
