“Been here multiple times, never dissapointed”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

As a frequent traveller to Nuremberg I have a habit to go to Eku Inn almost on every visit on the day of arrival. Admittedly the place itself is not that great and seems a bit tacky with its orangy-browny colour scheme, but that is definetly not the prime reason to go here. The main draw of this place is Steak, and not just rumpsteak, but all kinds of different variaties such as Waygu, Bison, Irish, T-Bones... If you go for one of the speciality steaks listed you have the opportunity to choose the weight of the piece of meat that you want to eat. Do be aware however, that the minimum weight for these pieces averages around the 300g some not for the faint harted ! Once you have made your choice, the, you specify how you want it cooked, and it is always cooked to perfection, exactly as you ordered. Whatever you choose, I have never had a tough piece of meat here! Do be aware however that the house speciality is meat, which means that all the rest is ok, but defintely not of the same quality. So as long as you go for the tradition steak, chips and salad you should not be dissapointed.

“Sorry we don't have this, sorry we don't have that!”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

If a steak restaurant doesn't have several typical side dishes or was running out of some side dishes from the menu this is astonishing. And this was during the lunch time.
The behaviour of the waiters could be better.

“excellent steaks and wonderful service”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

We've been here already a couple times - and never got disappointed.

Their meat (-regardless what you get-) is excellent; their side dishes also very tasty. It's a great place with your partner, some friends; for dinner or lunch ...

They are kind of pricey but it's absolutely worth the money. They are also good at recommending a wine that goes with your food. - what else can a food lover's heart ask for ;-) ?

Oh: and if you want to eat there in summer: they have a wonderful courtyard that you only reach by walking around the building (not through the restaurant). Ask them inside if you don't find it: they arranged it in a very cozy and relaxing Mediterranean style. You'll love it.

“Best steak in town”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

Eku Inn has reputably the best steak in Nuremberg and you'll often find it full of US / UK expats tired of pork and bratwurst. The place is very popular and you are advised to book in advance, especially during the colder seasons when the open air terrace is not in operation.

The interior is a bit tacky, reminiscent of the 70's. The service is unfortunately a hit and miss - it might be slow, once we even got told off for showing up when they had no tables (even having booked in advance.. weird), but most of the time it is all right.

All this said, we'll still be going back to EKU for the great steak.

“Real Meat !!”
Reviewed September 15, 2012

Great welcome, but do book ahead. Situated within the old town district and has a nice atmosphere inside. Very good range of steaks, menus available in English, some house specials also including steaks from Ireland and Australia. Good beer too and the service was the best I have seen on this trip to Germany.
Definately recommend, possibly not for couples but great for groups of 4+
