“Great service, from a beautiful restaurant”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

Of all the great restaurants we've been to (we live in Bondi, Sydney) this little restaurant provided the best service we can recall. The food was good and really well presented, but the service couldn't be faulted. The maitre'd was lovely as were his waiters. We had the veal and the lamb - both beautifully cooked.

“Wonderful dining experience”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

We enjoyed our dinner here while spending 2 nights at this lovely hotel. Great, friendly wait staff, charming decor and special china made just to go with the Little Prince theme. We had a delicious amuse of lobster pâté, followed by a great lobster bisque, very light. My husband had an asparagus soup, also tasty, and then we shared a lovely fillet of sole dinner which they nicely split for us for a few extra Euros. The wine paired very well with the fish, a local Riesling, which they suggested. Dessert was a sampling of all the desserts, beautifully presented. Overall a fantastic evening in lovely Baden Baden, highly recommended.

“dissapointing dining experience”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

I know this restaurant gets great reviews, but it was just so-so. First of all I have never been in a more glaringly lit restaurant in my life - it was ridiculous. Basically it's lit like a public restroom - garish bright light. Secondly the decor is just silly - I get the theme but it's over the top and childish. Service and food were fine but not good enough for the price. Eat at the Brenners instead, you won't regret that.

“Quaint... Varied selection of gourmet choices...Attentive friendly service.”
Reviewed December 27, 2012 via mobile

We chose this restaurant as we were staying at the sister hotel, Belle Époque. When we reserved we requested a table by the fireplace. It was quite romantic albeit gas the ambience was nice. The only correction in this department would be to dim the lights slightly in the dinIng room. We started off with the lobster bisque with crayfish and salad with sautéed chanterelles with raspberry vinaigrette. We then split the beef filet with fois gras truffle sauce and lobster roulade in champagne sauce. All of these were done to perfection and delicious. The wine list was heavy on Deutsch and French wines. We opted for our favorite, a 2004 Barolo. We split a dessert variation and each had an espresso macchiato. The entire experience was extremely pleasant and tasty. Would reserve at this restaurant again based on their food quality and friendly service.
