“A good restaurant”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

I chose this restaurant after reading the reviews and was not disappointed. The waitresses were surprised to hear about Tripadvisor's ratings to this restaurant. We went for lunch. The restaurant is located in a lovely street in the northern part of the old city's pedestrian zone.
The dinning room is small but very nice . The service was friendly and attentive. It was a sunny day and a few tables were placed outside on the street, which is closed to traffic.

My husband had a salad with some sea food, he was delighted. I had lamb and gnocchi. The lamb was tasty but not really cooked. There was no fixed menu for lunch which I find a bit dissapointing, the prices are reasonable (around 18-25 euro for the main course). We really liked the restaurant, the atmosphere and the food.

“Great Find in Freiburg”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

We had lunch at the Lichtblick. It is a bit off the beaten path of tourists, but within 3 blocks of the cathedral. Most of the patrons appeared to be local residents. The staff was extremely friendly and spoke fluent English. Both my wife and I had the fish with écrevisse and a delicious salad. I prefer potatoes to rice, and they substituted without a problem. The table wine was excellent, and the dark bread was a great treat. We recommend this restaurant highly.

“Excellent!”
Reviewed July 13, 2013

Our meals here, chosen from the 4 course nightly special menu, were excellent and fair value. The food was lighter and less salty than much of what we had in Germany. It was a rainy night so we ate inside - would likely have been even nicer sitting outside.

“Delightful”
Reviewed June 4, 2013

We eat here mostly for lunch but it's equally appealing for dinner; we've been dozens of times. The food is inventive and meticulously prepared. The vegetarian choices are unusually good -- not the after-thoughts you get most places. The soups have a bit of genius about them. In fact there are many careful choices made about the experience, from the small but excellent wine list to the little chocolate covered fruit that comes with your espresso. The room is small and pleasant and the service is just right. It's also located in the most charming part of the old city near the Schwabentor, and on nice days they put a few tables in a sunny spot outside on the street, which is closed to traffic. One of our favorite restaurants in Freiburg & highly recommended.

“Great atmosphere and fantastic food”
Reviewed March 28, 2013 via mobile

Have been to LICHTBLICK quite a few times. In the heart if the old city centre you will find a great atmosphere, fantastic food and a friendly and welcoming service team.
The food creations are always nice and especially tempting are the 3 or 4 course menus of the day.
I can purely recommend to visit this small, cosy and modern restaurant.
If you are super hungry...go for the 4 courses :-)

War schon oft hier im Lichtblick im Herzen der Freiburger Innenstadt und komme immer wieder gerne.
Tolle Atmosphäre, leckeres Essen, Super Service...einfach Wohlfühlen.
Die Kreationen sind immer etwas ganz besonderes und toll sind auch die Spezial-Menüs (3 oder 4 Gänge).
Super hungrig? Dann am Besten die 4 Gänge :-)
