Stumbled across Zum Spiessgesellen as we admired the intriguing entrance and thought it may have been a museum. After further exploration found the restaurant fairly busy for a Monday evening. Nice big beers and some tasty pork shoulder - the crackling stealing the show -...More

If you like good food besides Bratwurst this is a good recommendation. The quality of food is excellent. Products used from local suppliers. Meat from farmers around the city. Not cheap but good value for money.

We had wanted to eat a traditional German meal so we booked a table here from our hotel recommendation. The restaurant was quiet and didn’t have much atmosphere. We all had “bratwurst” - essentially 6 sausages with a choice of potato salad or sauerkraut. It...More

I’ve been there for an informal business dinner. Good food and beer. Very typical Franconia restaurant.

This is what we were looking for - a Bavarian beer cellar. Splendid. Good food and beer. Brilliant building, good service but very very busy.

Nice place, very kind waiters, very good food and excellent beer. I truly liked this place where they produce their own beer which you should taste. What else, maybe yo shold be prepared for some queue (it was full at 8pm). Strongly suggested!

We arrived in central Nuremberg at just before 9pm and we asked our hotel if they could recommend a restaurant who would still be serving food. They recommended we try Zum Spiessgesllen as it was just around the corner from the hotel. When we arrived...More

We wanted Nuremberg fare and came to the right spot. We had recommendations for both Zum Spiessgesellen and Bratwurst Roslein; we liked them both. They sit across the courtyard from each other. Zum is quieter, slower, and more laid back; Bratwurst is huge, with fast...More
