I was here with the wife last year because we had heard (and read) good things. The decor was nice, service OK (for local standards) and the food decent. I would have given it 4/5 instead of 3/5 if it wasn't for the price. I don't mind paying for a great eating experience but I found it very expensive for... More

This restaurant offers perfect food and is one of the two best places in Forchheim for getting excellent food. The menu is a very nice composition of some extraordinary combinations which are prepared and served in high quality. If you're looking for perfect food in the middle of town this is the best place. The food is worth all the... More

The only real criticism is that the restaurant lacks some atmosphere. Probably due to the... More

He referred to the restaurant as one of the 2 best restaurants in Forchheim (the other one being Kammerersmuhle). Indeed, today as well at a month ago, the dishes were excellent, very aesthetic presentation and perfect cooking. Today I... More

We wandered around town looking for a restaurant, but nothing appealed to us. Then we saw the Michelin awards for the last three years. The prices were just a little more than we had wanted to pay for the noon meal, but we went in anyway. We got the last free table in the house and were not disappointed. The... More
