This was a very good occasion to try local specialities, such as black pudding and liver sausage with sauerkraut. For starters it was beef soup and it was not just in words “homemade” – it tasted like one. Local wine was very nice, if somewhat too light for the food choice. The service was very pleasant and efficient, the portions... More

What a lovely view, sitting out on the terrace looking across the Rhine! Staff were very helpful and polite and fluent English speakers which is appreciated. I had pigs stomach steak, frittes and salad. Apart from the 'say it as it is' aspect of describing the meat, not commenly done in UK, but it is what it is!, the meal... More

Great terrace with a view and a large old tree. Menu has many seasonal items. Food is decent but not special. Large wine list by the glass, inexpensive but well equipped. Very friendly staff, funny and knowledgeable. A place for tourists and locals as well. Definitely a place to come back to.

I was staying in hotel next door and noticed this place was busy - with locals so on visiting wasn't disappointed with the food. The pleasant staff spoke English so I was able to get a recommendation and chose the chanterelles with dumplings, the plate presented as well as looking tasted magnificent. Pleasant folk, great local food, relaxing, oh and... More

We were staying nearby so we went here for a meal one evening. We both had pork schnitzel and fried potatoes - it was delicious, wholesome and filling. Portion sizes were fantastic! Beer is nice as well.

Right next to our Hotel we thought we would try this restaurant on the River front, what a disappointment, there was a wedding on and I think they where more interested in feeding the wedding that providing good service and food for us! Expensive and bad service!

We walked all round Konigswinter looking for somewhere to eat. Lots of places were closed, and who goes to Germany to eat Chinese? So we climbed up to the terrace where we were met by a charming young man, who brought us menus in English and tried to help with our poor German and his better English. Kevin had the... More

We ate here dinner, 4 couples, including a bear and few glasses of red wine. People liked the drink's taste. Food was fresh made, very tasty (veil was very delicious, loved also the kirsh). We were sorry we couldn't stay sitting there outside much longer because of other obligations. Good atmospher, weather was great, and the elegant promenade konigswinter has... More
