The restaurant is in a great location, looked busy and had good reviews. Once we'd found a table (lots were reserved) orders were taken fairly swiftly and decent beer served. Then we waited.... Kids meals were each about €9, one was largely left uneaten as...More

We only went for a glass of wine and dessert and ordered the Marillenknödel, an Austrian speciality. They were very good, but we were seriously disappointed by the quality of the wine.More

We enjoyed a fine meal while dining outside in the beer garden of the Goldener Hecht in Heidelberg. The service was great and the evening totally enjoyable.

Food was fine but the patio is not level so one of us was above the table and the other below. Many smokers as in all of Europe so you have to put up with that. Waitress was grouch - our first meal in Heidelberg...More

The restaurant and beer garden "Goldener Hecht" is located directly at the historic old Neckarbrücke in the heart of Heidelbergs historic center. In a cozy and authentic ambience, Austrian cuisine is served in big portions and appropriately served by the service in the Dirndl. The Wiener Schnitzel is probably the best in town, a unique Austrian Tafelspitz in a strong Boullion or the Kaiserschmarrn (enough for at least two) are further highlights on the menu.
