Zum Zwiebel was a wonderful experience - located in an old building, a cozy, warm and lovingly decorated room. Authentic German menu, excellent dinner and value. Delightful wait staff - Miki - a lovely young lady who valiantly translated the entire menu for us in English. Perfect dinner.

Food was really local, big portions. You have to ask if they can "slow" done otherwise you are in and out within a hour. Food okay.

As tipical in Thuringian you can't escape from meat.. and in this nice small restaurant at the corner close to one of Weimar's squares you can also taste something typical for the city: the onions cake or Zwiebelkuchen! Really nice! Good portions and nice food. Obviously you can not miss the beer! Nice and quick service. Recommended!

The food was not expensive but really delicious and authentic. The meat was tender and the sauce was very good.

I went there because the Scharfe Ecke Weimar restaurant had its kitchen already closed at 9PM. The restaurant is just 1 street after, it has a small terrace for summer time. Inside is quite small but roomy enough. The menu has all usual thuringian dishes. The portion is big like anywhere in Germany. I had a Krustenbraten that was very... More

In this somewhat hidden corner of Weimar, one can enjoy a lovely beer and good, honest food. Over time, we have tried a couple of dishes - always very tasty. I would recommend a schnitzel with Scharzbier. Friendly service.

Located between the St Peter and Paul's Church and Goethe Square, the Zum Zwiebel is one of the best place to eat and drink beer. Foods are traditional from Turingia, but you can also try more general german sausages, soups, grill meat. Prices are slightly cheaper than others restaurant in Weimar and service is good.
