We were lucky to find this restaurant as there really are many in the old town and all look so inviting. 'Early' offered many vegetarian dishes and as it was consistently busy with both locals and tourists we thought we would try a meal. The portions are a good size and are appetizing with greens as a garnish. The menu... More

Cheap but big portions. Very friendly and speedy service. It's a must to try the "aufläufe". The pasta one with leek and champignons is really good! We drank four big colas, four meals, and a tiramisu, con costed 43 euro. We had to roll out of the restaurant. Would visit again.

We came across this restaurant as we walked the streets of old Marburg and it got our attention. They had an English menu as well that let us cheat and make it too easy to order. The casseroles were awesome for a vegetarian option.

Excellent would be the word the best describes this place, from the food, the atmosphere, including some great American oldies, the service and the charm. And you get all of this for an inexpensive price. Seating is limited though and wait times can be expected during peak periods. Interesting artwork also adorns the walls.

The food and beer is cheap and very well cooked. We came a busy night, but the waiters had everything under control and we never felt left alone despite the full restaurant. We had among other things the Indian stir fry and some homemade pasta. Everything was homemade, and tasted wonderful. Dont miss out this place if you are in... More

Actually I have nothing to add to what my predecessors wrote, I'm just collecting review points .... Excellent, simple food more than worth it's price, lots of young people, milk with honey ('Honigmilch') ... we stop there every time we're in Marburg!

I am Italian therefore high expectation regarding pasta! Me and my wife had Casseroles (Auflauf) and was delicious. Could not expect it better. The service is excellent, young gentle staff. Prices are affordable. The atmosphere inside the restaurant is warm and friendly. I would come back and I highly recommend this restaurant.
