This small restaurant was a great stop! We were walking the side streets of Rottenburg and stumbled across this fantastic eatery. I had the traditional pig knuckle with sauerkraut and potato dumplings and my wife had the goolosh with braised beef. They were both the...More

This restaurant was recommended to us, by one who works there in the kitchen, if I wanted a nice steak. We wanted a good steak and weren't disappointed. Are beer to match was perfect!

Nice food, decent service, and authentic German cuisine make this a good place to eat or take in the atmosphere of the neighborhood area. You can also sit inside if it too cold. Prices were reasonable for this quaint, historical, but truly touristy town. I...More

And they took Visa. We had excellent sauerbraten and Deer goulash along with all the trimmings. The desserts were also very good and overall a good value for a tourist area.

The meals (Schnitzel & Spätzle and Schweineschäufle & dumplings) were large in portion and for a reasonable price, served quickly. The taste was good, as expected, but no "ohs and ahs".. The typically German wooden interior and charming atmosphere does it all for you, really!...More

Hi, I'm sorry, I'm not sure because we just went there and got a table. They are very accomodating, and I think if you go fairly early early, i.e., before 7 pm, you should be okay. The tourists seem to leave around that time.
