We stopped by Pillhofer on 2 different days for a drink and the service was very friendly and helpful. We only ate here once and the food was excellent-typical Bavarian. The prices were very good. I would definitely go back.

The food here was delicious, and the service was friendly and attentive. They also did a salad which I was most pleased about. I honestly don't know why this doesn't rate further up the list of good restaurants in Nuremberg. I certainly rate it, and I'm picky! haha

Nice waitress, she was doing... More

Been here for one night with some colleagues for dinner. The food was amazing and was my best German meal so far. Also the staff is in authentic clothing what adds to the atmosphere.
