They do not provide takeaways and staff failed to state politely. When asked for hot water, it was covered with dirt. I dared not drink it. All except one staff was rude. Otherwise it would be a nice place with cute decor.

The food was delicious, service friendly and fast. The duck is crispy roasted and everything else was worth the visit, the best while there. It was extremely hot inside though, they turn the heating on too high for the weather only being about 50 outside. Made it very uncomfortable.

Came here on the reviews but was sadly disappointed. The Lady serving was polite, and the beer was good as to be expected, but the venison goulash was basically inedible. It was a large portion of very tough, grizzle filled meat! That was basically it - every mouthful was just tough grizzle, so i had to leave most of it,... More

We stay there for a night. Tiny room, but romantic. Dinner closes early (not so good). It was a cozy place.

We were a bit tired of "local fare" but this was our last night so we went with it. I had the beef goulash with a side of cabbage -- very good. My husband had the pork knuckle -- also good and, of course, lots on the plate. Service was friendly and helpful. Looked like folks who stay in the... More

Very small, quaint little restaurant set just off the main streets of Rothenburg. Friendly service and a wonderful menu. You can't go wrong with any of the choices.

Enjoyable meal, very much "home cooking" style. I tried the venison ragout accompanied by a local red wine. Neither was disappointing, but the main dishes are quite large so I did not have appetite for dessert. It looks like it would be nice in summer to eat outside in the small square.

The central local partnered with good beer and an outside seating area makes this place a must. Stop, relax and people watch. Really liked their soup and had to have my bratwurst as a first stop on our trip.

The staff was English speaking which was nice for me. They didn't have something in menu what I wished for, but the chef accommodated my request and the food, while very traditional german, had a little bit of creative twist on it. Ask for their specials. It was pumpkin season so they made awesome stuff with it.

We decided to eat here for the night we were staying in Rothenburg. We went reasonably early and as we had read in reviews it was already quite busy. We were fortunate to be placed on the end of a larger table already occupied, as we saw many other people soon after us turned away as the place was full.... More
