Great Breakfast Buffet with a large variety, anything from scrambled eggs, ham, cheese, fruit, jam and bread to pudding. Service is very friendly and especially child friendly. All that in the heart of Nurnberg at just 7,90€ incl. fresh Orange juice is hard to beat....More

I always enjoy stopping by this bistro, meeting up with friends here. Love the atmosphere and the wonderful location especially in summer on the terrace! Good service and light bistro food add to the enjoyment.

I got to Nuremberg early and not much was open. I was hungry and tried this place on the recommendation of a local. There was a ton of very good food. I was very happy with it. Yogurt, meats, breads- all very good.

Pleasant atmosphere which attracts a significant audiance. Enough staff with real interest for the costumer. Food reasonably priced, but with good quallity. Interestingly enough the restaurant opens early in the morning with a buffetstyle breakfast. Definitely a place to go for dinner as well.

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.
