Went in for local flavor Saturday night. There were several people in a group obviously enjoying themselves. The server rolled her eyes seeing us take a table in the back room according to my wife. Though the ambience was nice and we managed to have a good time, the service was the poorest I can remember. The 50 something server spent quite alot of time sitting at a table with apparent local friends, ignoring us and our empty glasses. After a refill, the only prompt thing she did was bring us the check without our asking. We were made to feel unwelcome. The most fun was joking about the bad service throughout the next day.

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at this unique, cozy & charming restaurant. Our salads were the best of our entire trip and the pork tenderloin on toast was very flavourful and excellent as well. Our waitress Carmen was a total delight as well!

Tonight while visiting Rothenburg, Germany, we had a desire for some real German cuisine and had originally selected another restaurant in town to try. As luck would have it, the restaurant in question was closed for the evening and, based on a suggestion, we decided to try out Altfrankische Weinstube. Luck was definitely with us tonight.

We all had the pork loin and spaetzle with mushroom sauce which was delicious. Our server, Carmen, worked hard at making sure that we had no wants during he meal and made several extremely helpful suggestions regarding meal selections. The salad dressing was a home made concoction which was simply delicious. After dinner, I was enticed to try the creme brûlée; what a delight. It was served with a sweet fruit mix of different types of berries.

We found the food reasonably priced for German food which is usually a bit pricy and the atmosphere, very homy.

I should add that we did sample selections from their wine and could find nothing negative to say about what we tried, but to say that there wasn't enough time to try more selections. If you find yourself visiting Rothenburg and are in need of some great food, try Altfrankische Weinstrub, you won't be sorry you did.

This restaurant is fabulous but be warned you will need a reservation. It is small and wonderful in its atmosphere and food. We phoned and left a message for a reserved time but almost missed out because no one checks the messages. So, walk there if you have to and if there is no one there leave a message for your booking on the door or on the desk. It's worth the effort.

We came without a reservation (didn't know we needed one) and just wanted good German food. They accommodated us and served the most amazing cheese plate. The kids loved the old atmosphere.
