Alex was recommended to us by our hotel receptionist and we were not disappointed. It is used by young locals and serves good beer as well as tasty food. I had fresh peppermint tea and it was delicious. Staff are friendly and efficient.

I was invited by a supplier to their event evening around an exhibition at the Messe. The dinner was a buffet and was very well done. The waiting staff were very attentive during the evening.

Excellent happening spot in the central marketplace for sharing drinks with the locals, Cannot comment on the food as we stuck strictly to beers and shots. We did mix with a few locals who we're very friendly and able to recommend places to see (such as other bars and clubs) which helped us out as we did very little research... More

We had a mid morning breakfast here, and ordered the "eat what you like" buffet, which isn't that cheap but is good value if you view it as a way of fueling you up for the day! Choice of breads and meats is excellent (as you'd expect) but there was less choice for vegetarians than we might have hoped apart... More

Didn't eat there but enjoyed great cocktails on successive nights. Friendly staff and very good ambience. Cannot comment on the food but would highly recommend for aperitif or digestif.

Had dinner one night after the Christmas markets. I had the pulled pork burger and it was tasty, but the pulled pork was cold unfortunately. My 3 year old had the fish and chips, and it was excellent fish. The menu was typical international fare - nothing special or local.

We stopped by for lunch. The menu is nothing but ordinary. The food we saw on other tables was unappetizing. We decided on cakes. The selection consisted of a mere 4 selections. The four of us each ordered a different one and then we exchanged tastes. The Alex will win no stars for its cuisine. The service tries to be... More

This restaurant enjoys an elevated position overlooking the square where the Christmas market is located. We really liked it here and visited three times, mostly for drinks, but we did have a very good meal one night. The schnitzel was excellent. Would definitely go again.

The ALEX is centrally located in the historically significant city of Nuremberg, by the main market. After a long journey around the old town, we will be delighted to let you relax at the ALEX. At Christmas, Nuremberg's Christmas market takes place here as well. The ALEX in Nuremberg has warm food on offer right up until closing time.
