Such a nice experience: beautiful terrace and exceptional food. The tortellini in sage butter were done to perfection! The waiter was super nice and fun to talk to. Two minor drawbacks: the Hugo aperitif had an artificial taste to it and the "amuse gueule" was just taken away from us without any replacement when we mentioned that we are vegetarians.

Close to Schloss Braunfels at the centre square, you can have a very nice diner. I have been here many times, and it's always been good. Small card and wine collection, but in this place it's probably the best place to go.

I travel often to Braunfels for family reasons, and recently had the chance to dine at this restaurant. The owners formerly were involved in a Pizzeria in Braunfels and have graduated to this upscale eatery in an unexpected place. The town of Braunfels is off the beaten track and not associated with really fine dining. Here is the exception. 100... More

Ristorante Geranio is located just a footstep away from the medieval castle Braunfels is famous for. Nice ancient building, with friendly attentive staff (partially Italian speaking which I always find a good sign). Menu has all the Italian classics: mozzarella di buffala, parma ham, antipasti, great variety of pizza and pasta's as well as meat (saltimbocca, fillet of beef) and... More

This is a family restaurant on a slightly above average level, pretending to be something special... Their food is rather OK, but their wine list is really poor, the service is soso and the overall experience is not memorable. Nevertheless, I would still have given them a 4* rating if they hadn't spoiled my dinner experience with a close to... More

We had a fabulous lunch here after touring Schloss Braunfels. The owners very graciously accomodated our large group of 18. The food was delicious, the service friendly and warm and the value superb. The 3 course lunch for 25 Euros is a special treat. We had a sunny day and enjoyed our meal on the terrace with views to the... More

This award winning restaurant is really surprisingly good. Never had expected a restaurant of this class in Braunfels. A place you can bring any business partners or customer. Excellent menu and wine list. The only small problem was the unexpected credit-card machine which didn't work. this should have been mentioned before dinner.
