“Only a nice view...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2012

I think this restaurant previously received a one Michelin star. But I think the place no longer live up to its name at least from the food perspective.

The atmosphere is pretty good, it has a nice overlook of Heidelberg. Clean and professional service is followed. All staff is capable of fluent English and is very accommodating.

But the food doesn't live up... French with some German/Austrian touch.. Not much tasty nor creative especially considering the price..

For tourist, it might be still okay... depending on your preferences.

One tip: if you have a car, you need to street park near the building which could be bit touch..

“Not really a star”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2011

The restaurant offers stunning views over Heidelberg. But overpriced and overrated. The food was ok, but not spectacular. The sommelier was frankly a disaster. Very inattentive and unfriendly and I would question his qualification. Unprofessional and not at the level of a restaurant that claims to be among the leading places in Heidelberg. The waitresses at the table were very friendly.

Needs serious improvement to qualify for the top league. Not really worth what you pay.

“Amazing View and Top service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2011

From the Top of the hauptquarters from Heidelberg print machine company you will have an amazing view from Heidelberg and from the valley.

The service was just perfect. All the rules have been respected and always with a friendly smile.

Two menus : 30eur for 2 dishes / 35eur for 3.

Fair price if you consider the quality and creativity of the receipt.

“Totally Michelin??? Don't think so”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2011

This place has or used to have a Michelin star and the staff really are bending over backwards, which in a lot of cases makes them look like they are trying too hard. Like when we left this waiter accompanied us to the elevator??? Would you believe that? The location is quite impressive with a nice view from top above and if you are lucky you can see the castle. The food was at best average - I am so not convinced! I would not go back - a Michelin place is different for me, I need athmosphere and good food.
