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.

What a lunch! This is a block off the main square. The weather was questionable so we decided to eat indoors. The restaurant 's motif was all dark wood with stone. They do have an English menu. We ordered the mini sausages with sauerkraut as a starter. We wanted regional specialities so we ordered the pork shank and noodles with... More

Highly recommend that you make reservations. We arrived early so were lucky to get a table. Staff was friendly and spoke English to us. Food was good, no complaints. Enjoyed our dinner in a pleasant atmosphere.

Based on reading previous reviews we made a reservation for a Saturday night and were pleased to see a table waiting for us indoors. We drank local beer and ordered traditional pork entrees that were excellent. We were surrounded by locals and we enjoyed watching the dishes that were served to them. Everything looked wonderful. This is a fun, happy... More
