In town for the European Coating Show and were just walking around and spotted this place. We both enjoyed the Nuremberg sausages and the house style salad. Both were delicious. The place is very old school Germany. It has a bit of touristy feel but...More

We arrived quite late and the staff at the Pillhofer accepted us without a reservation and were nice and friendly. We sat in a corner and a group of people were sat with us after a short while which didn't bother us at all as...More

Nice location and decor. The menu had some very nice choices. I had the crispy pork shoulder. 700 grams of meat that was full of flavor. Service was very good and the place can be very busy. Reservations are a must

We went here for something nice for breakfast/lunch. We arrived at 11.15am but they'd stopped doing breakfast at 10am and everything on the menu was mainly a main...nothing you'd have for lunch. We ordered the 2 sausages and the camembert cheese dish...these were 6 euros...More

If you're after traditional Bavarian place and dishes then this is just what you're after. Good selection of both food and beers. Popular with tourists and locals so booking table is advisable. Friendly staff (well, most of it).

Don't expect "cuisine"--that'd be a misnomer in much of Franconia--but our quick luncheon was entirely pleasant and satisfying, and absolutely decent as regards "value for money." Can't really say much since we restrained ourselves to a single dish each: gulash soup (local style) and bread...More
