We stopped in because the place posted an interesting menu. We read it in German and understood what was offered. When I asked the server about milk or cream in some of the dishes she just brought me a menu card printed in English, and said all the dishes were served with sauces already prepared. We left hungry.

Attractive entrance but a bit run down as you get further in - however, the coffee and cake we had for lunch we enjoyed.

Was at this restaurant with friends. Great service and the food was super with large portions. One has to try the schnitzel. Mine was the entire size of my plate. The meat was very tender, came with fries and a salad. For desert we had the Rudersheim coffee which is done with whipped cream and Ashbach which was great and... More

On our second night in Ruedesheim, we were looking for somewhere to dine and saw this restaurant which looked very attractive from outside. We were seated in the garden area and given the menu. It was very quiet and service could have been quicker. Our order of Calamari with salad and Saffron Rice and Pork Schnitzel with chips and a... More

You cannot visit Ruedesheim without having it's 'coffee specialty'. Warmed Brandy poured over sugar cubes placed over strongly brewed back coffee, flamed, swirled, extinguished, and then topped with whipped cream! Too die for.

We stopped in for afternoon drinks and cake. They have a good selection of cakes and pastries. The service is friendly if unhurried which suited our laid back holiday. They specialize in Rudesheimer Coffee which looked very alcoholic and on fire. Didn't try it though. Nice central location away from the river.

Good food and drinks. The food was well prepared and presented Ann's the service was also very good. The meal was very large for British standards so really good if you are hungry. Thanks.

You can only order what is on the menu without any changes, they can't serve a weizen radler, i was brought beer with a side of sprite, i would recommend going elsewhere

The food is not great, the service even worse. However the garden area surrounding the seating area is quite pretty. It is overpriced for what you get. So many restaurants in Rudesheim you do not need to eat here.

When you get off the Seilbahn at the top of the Neiderwald this is the only vafe available. The standard is OK but nothing special
