The street next to this restaurant is under repair so not too picturesque at the moment. However it was more than made up for by the excellent friendly, efficient service - A very smiley waiter explained that Chanterelle mushrooms are in season and his recommendation was spot on. It is the first time I have been offered seconds in a... More

Ate here on our last night in Bavaria. The food was lovely (OMG the strudel...) and service very friendly. Definitely the opposite from hell ("Holl" in German)....

We had a super meal here- authentic German food. Great atmosphere, it was busy but we had fast friendly service and the food was delicious and exactly what we were looking for. Loved it.

The fine selection of local food was excellent and the service impeccable, but that's something that can be said about many other restaurants. What really makes Zur Höll a place you will want to visit again is the wonderful atmosphere: it really does feel like stepping into another century.

When I got there I was a little surprise that the place is so small but after some time I think it was the best side. No traffic, no hundreds of tourist. The staff is amazing helpful and it easy to see that they want to help and make that client feel good. I saw there many tourists from USA... More

We enjoyed a wonderful meal and service at the restaurant. Make a reservation - on a Monday they were turning people away. Also, cash only. But don't let that deter you - we simply ran back to the hotel and they could have cared less. Don't listen to the folks who say it's touristy. The whole town is touristy. Go... More

This is a very popular restaurant due to association with the Night Watchmen. He typically visits between tours and recommends it to tour participants. The name basically means “go to hell” in German. The food is good - focusing on regional specialties with a heavy presence of pork and sausages. Good, but many other options in Rothenberg for the price.... More

Excellent meal. Needed to rush a bit for the night watchman tour - would have liked to have more time but really good meal with very friendly service.

I came here with two girl friends and we had an amazing dining experience. We arrived shortly after they opened for dinner, which was provident of us since they filled up quickly. We were asked if we had a reservation, but it was no problem that we didn't. our waiter was extremely cordial and well-spoken in several languages. The food... More

First of all, the food was good. The waiter was friendly, a bit slow, but courteous. When you enter, they will bring you the menu which has only a handful of main courses and then the waiter is there to explain the special of the day. Take a good look at the menu and you'll see that there is no... More
