“Wonderful German saugages!”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

Was referred to this restaurant while on a business trip in Nuremberg. The restaurant is a short walking distance from the Holiday Inn.

From the moment you walk in the atmosphere takes over. It is said to be the oldest sausage restaurant in the world. They make everything in house, authentic nuremburg saugages that are to die for, homeade potato salad, and sauerkraught. I love that they are dedicated to supporting the local farmers. A must try if not just for the history of the place but the food wont disappoint!

“Good basic food, service is very slow.”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

Now this place is not as good as Das Bratwursthäusle Nürnberg-which has the best sauerkraut in Nuremberg. But Goldern Stern is cute, and located right under my favorite Hotel - Am Jakobsmarkt. This restaurant was started in 1419, and looks like it. Food is fresh and always tasty. they at times have seating area outside, and a good variety of beers.

“good bratwurst, very unpolite service”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

We arrived at 9.00 p.m. due to flight arrival in Nuremberg. As soon as we step into saying "Guten Abend", a waitress replied " We finish serving at 10". We vere not particularly hungry and asked only for the famous Nurnberger Bratwurst. They tasted very good. The waitress also gave us some bread.
Another small group of tourists came later and her behaviour was the same, unpolite and brisk. They had not enough bread so she came to our table and asked for giving them a couple of "Brotchen" left. We had finished to eat and said yes. She took no 1 cent of "Trinkgeld"

“Mouth watering!”
Reviewed April 20, 2013

While visiting Nuremberg in Dec. 2012 on a cold wintry night we enjoyed delicious brats, sauerkraut and warm hospitality at the "Golden Star". A great dining experience.

“Great, if you like bratwurst”
Reviewed April 20, 2013

This is a great place to meet up with friends for dinner - if your like bratwurst. From the moment you walk in, you're taken back in time! Rustic wooden plank floors, old wooden tables and chairs but they are sturdy and well maintained. The décor is also of the period. Their menu is almost totally bratwurst, but we gave up eating bratwurst long ago, and chose to have a feld salad (spinach), and potato salad (small dish) Also had their potato soup - very good, but they have a few selections of soup (real small portions in a cup-like bowl that they only fill half way), and their bread rolls are great. We ate upstairs and sat at a table where we could peer down to the lower level. Their apple strudel is also good - small portions, bathed in the traditional "vanille crème". There is a large new multilevel parking garage (Jakob Parkhaus) right next to the restaurant, so parking is convenient - rate 1.80euro per hour, max. 16euro per day. However, if you really want to be a spendthrift, and are desperate for bratwurst, there's a gal who operates out of a trailer that looks like a Coca Cola can, located in a cross street in the pedestrian shopping area, and she sells boatloads of bratwurst to pedestrians - 3 nuremberger brats in a roll, free condiments of your choice. Demand is high, and sometimes there's a line but it moves very quickly - her stuff is authentic and dirt cheap (1.50euro), if you're pressed for time.
