This is right on the Marketplatz, so we expected it to be a tourist trap, especially during the Christmas Market. My family loved all of the dishes, and I especially loved the spaetzle. The service was fast as they are likely motivated to get tourists in and out. The upper deck outside of the restaurant is a great place to... More

Highly recommend. On the immediate outskirts of the Christmas market, but quite a small restaurant that you walk up stairs to, and not touristy. The wait staff were very friendly. I had the schnitzel and it was fantastic. The sausages were wonderful with sauerkraut and the 3 year old had about 4-5. Bavarian is not my favourite cuisine in the... More

We came in for late afternoon coffee and drinks after spending time in the Christmas market. By the audible sigh our waitress made, you would have thought we personally insulted her. We considered leaving, but stayed and everything was incredibly average. Save your money and go somewhere with less attitude.

We ate there twice as the pork steak was wonderful. The family that ran the restaurant were very nice people. We had beer the first time and shared a wonderful Riesling the second time. We could say enough about Grandmother, who was always coming by and asking how things were. We sat and the bar both times and the bartenders... More

This restaurant is located right in the 'Altstadt' on the 'Hauptmarkt' were the 'Christkindlmarkt' is. The view from the terrace is very nice. The food is good and reasonably priced. It can be very crowded at times. Service is friendly, but sometimes not well organized.

Oberkrainer is a restaurant on the 2d floor (American designation) of a building. The restaurant's interior is quaint and it also has a large terrace for dining outside. The view from there of the Mariakappelle and Hauptmarkt is excellent. We had lunch, including wine, for only 34 euros. So the place is inexpensive and its food is nevertheless very good.

Found this place just walking around and arriving on the Hauptmarkt. You have to climb stairs as it's based on the first floor. If you're lucky you get a great view from one of the tables in the windows. Service is swift, the menu doesn't have lots on it but for meat eaters there are some good options. Especially the...

We ate here early on a Sunday evening, when other places were packed. A traditional first floor restaurant with dark wood decor and a view over the Hauptmarkt to the Frauenkirche. Prompt service and good food, with two vegetarian choices among the meat.

Went to Oberkrainer last nite with a business colleague, for the second time this year. Inside is like time would have stopped in 1965. It still amazes me the pictures that decorate the set of stairs, where you can see some of the destruction that Nürnberg suffered after the bombing in WWII. Food is ok. I had the Schweinfilet mit...

We chose this spot looking for German food overlooking the main square. Food and service were good but nit remarkable. Overall we were satisfied and had a nice meal on a beautiful evening.
