We had dinner there in September while staying in Rothenburg ODT. The food was awesome and the service (kind of a one man show) was spot on. My wife ordered the pork knuckle--it was the best pork she tasted in Germany and we ate pork a lot. The place is small and quaint but appears very authentic from the middle ages. Prices very reasonable, good portions, don't forget to make a reservation. The owner had to turn away people while we were there. We picked this place based upon the review on Trip Advisor. It exceeded our expectations. Good job, Trip Advisor

I had read some mixed reviews but was determined to try for myself. This restaurant was ideally located near our Hotel. We dined here during the Imperial City Festival when the town is extremely busy.

The owner was very friendly and offered us advice about the town.

It is a small restaurant but has a great atmosphere.

The food was excellent! The apple strudel was amazing...

We were four hungry travelers who arrived late in the evening and without a reservation. However our host agreed to make dinner for us but with a limited choice. We were very pleased he did. The food was very good and the entertainment was included for free. Perhaps because it was near the end of the evening he spent time chatting to us and then telling jokes. He could have hurried us out the door so that he could get on with the clean up but he kept the jokes coming. He did get the last laugh when he said he would like to move to the Cook Islands and take life easy. I very seriously suggested that he might find the Islands too small and remote. Wasn't til we left we realised , Cook Island, ha ha. A good place for retired cooks!

Restaurant owner is at your service. Very helpful in explaining the menu and specials as well as the wine. Interesting casual conversation as he checks on you during the meal. You can appreciate the pride he takes in his restaurant. He even seen meticulously cleaning the chanterelle mushrooms with such care. Food is delicious!! Make sure you have reservations as he turned away many walk-ins as to not overcrowd or make anyone wait. Great experience and great food.

We dined here when it first opened at 6PM one evening. The owner/chef/waiter/greeter (does he REALLY do it ALL?!?) was so very friendly and we chatted a bit. The prices were very reasonable, my husband enjoyed his meal and thought it was "homey" - I don't really love German food so didn't love my meal. I wish that we had dined later when the atmosphere was more upbeat, but we did enjoy the meal overall. For a good home-cooked German meal you can't go wrong!
