The food was nothing special. The service was so so. The toilet was really smelling bad. At least they follow the COVID-19 rules.

What a find. Awesome food and outstanding service. Serving great local fare and their world famous Pork Hock .... it was sensational. Drinks were great and our waitress had a devlish sense of humour ... particularly when the bill was 69 euro.... an internationally renowned...number apparently!! Loved this place and strongly recommend a visit when looking to dine in Fussen.More

We are a family of 4 (2 adults , 2 teenagers). We have much appreciated eating in the restaurant Zum Hechten (Füssen). I have ordered a leg of pork, with a beer sauce. The price is moderate and I would state the quality is good....My sons have respectively ordered Seapike with tossed-potatoes and a cutlet from turkey: both were pretty satisfied with their dishes . The waiters/waitresses have always been attentive to us, patient when we ordered. We have appreciated the service . Additionally the place is nice (typical from bavaria?), and well located in the city-center. I recommend this restaurant.More

We came across this delightful restaurant as we were strolling along Fussen's old town. We were lucky enough to get a table, as it is popular, and enjoyed a really nice meal and brilliant service. There are many dining options in town but we decided...to try other delicacies from the menu on our 2nd night in town and weren't disappointed.More

On a one night stay in Fussen, we wanted to eat German with reasonable prices and the Zum Hechten more than ticked the boxes. Set in the old town just off the central 'square', it is traditional restaurant/bar with a good atmosphere. The staff who...served us spoke good English and were friendly in their manner quickly taking our orders. The food itself was well prepared, large portions and very reasonably priced, as was the accompanying beer. Certainly if I returned to Fussen I would not hesitate to eat there again, recommended.More
