Very good traditional food and excellent service. We arrived with no diner reservations, but were quickly seated outside for a very enjoyable meal. Prices were spot-on. Will definitely return on our next trip.

Pleasantly surprised with this restaurant. Just went into restaurant with no reviews or recommendations. The restaurant is small but the food is delicious. The wait staff were very nice. Highly recommend this restaurant. Try the Weiner schnitzel.

Very good (and decently priced), but not exceptional. Surprised that it is rated so highly - didn't seem like it would be #2.

Luckily there was still a table available when we arrived. The atmosphere was great and the food tasted fine. Just one of the serving ladies was a bit moody ;-)

Typical German cuisine at its best. Make reservation and and arrive hungry. The cream mushroom soup to start was delicious. If traveling with children they have a children's menu however the portions are so big you can possible share.

We arrived in Rothenberg at the witching hour, almost at the end of lunch time, with a hungry family. We read the prior recommendations on TripAdvisor and headed straight to Alter Keller. What a perfect stop for a later lunch! The beer was cold, the food was good, and the service was efficient. Mushrooms are in season, and my mother-in-law... More

Heard that this restaurant is skilful in preparing steaks, especially of aged beef. Hence, went there for lunch with my family. But when I was about to order my tenderloin medium rare, the waitress told us that no steaks were served during lunch time; steaks were only available for dinner. In the end, we had to settle for a veal... More

We had lunch (Nuremberger sausages with sauerkraut) and they were so good, we came back for dinner the same night. Had the local roast pork with red cabbage and dumplings. Outstanding! Made friends with a couple of locals at the next table and shared a schnapps over good conversation. Great traditional atmosphere and food.

A typical lovely restaurant in this myriad of fairytale streets. Well worth a visit if you would like a steak. I had a fillet for 22 euros which was excellent and the ladies in traditional dress were lovely.
