This is a really typical, unpretentious German restaurant. Outdoor seating area is available, although too cool the night of our visit. Good selection of German food at reasonable prices Menus in a variety of languages and friendly / welcoming service. Had a regional specialty of pork shoulder (schaeufele) and a wheat beer - very nice. They accept VISA. Walk up to the castle and look out over the city when you're done.

We ate lunch here after our visit to Kaiserburg just above this restaurant. It's at a very convenient location if you are visiting the castle. Food was pretty average. Potato soup with bratwurst was interesting. The outside seating gave a very nice atmosphere though it was quite chilly in the shade on this cool late September day. The menu is in both German and English which is very helpful. Our server spoke excellent English, so there's no problem. He was very attentive. We didn't ask for them, but we were served a couple of pretzels for which we subsequently were charged. Hidden cost? They were pretty good, though.

There some better, more authentic places to experience the local kitchen, but what makes this restaurant special are the views over the Old Town you get from there.

It offers reasonably priced franconian kitchen and my favorite local beer on tap - Zindorfer.

In summer it has comfortable summer garden.

The restaurant is located next to the castle, the food was really nice- the soups were amazing- the waitress even she did not speak much English, she was very friendly and the decoration was ok.
