We ordered the Gulasch mit Spätzle and the Jägerschnitzel. The Gulasch wasn't anything special, and the Spätzle was a bit disappointing. The Jägerschnitzel had hardly any mushroom flavour and was super salty. The chips were nice and crunchy though.

Baumeisterhaus was recommended by both the Lonely Planet Guide and the Michelin Green Guide, but was unfortunately, a miss for us. Even though the décor is beautiful, it's not enough for us to return to Baumeisterhaus the next time we're in Rothenburg ob der Tauber.

In past years this restaurant has been one of our favorites. For the last two years, the food quality has been poor. My pork knuckle was dry and could not be cut with a knife. My complaint was met with a shrug from the waiter and no offer of corrective action. Service took over an hour and the restaurant had only a dozen patrons when we were there. Rothenburg has many fine restaurants. Avoid the Baumeister.

It was a nice day so we sat at one of the tables outside to have a snack, we waited for ages and had to go inside to attract the waiter's attention. I ordered one beer for me and a slice of cake for my wife. After a long while the waiter brought out two slices of cake, when I advised that I only ordered one slice of cake, he snatched the other plate away, muttering something under his breath. Well mate, same to you! Another couple who sat down after us also had to wait ages to be served. The place wasn't that busy, and now we know why. It seems like this place is only interested in one off tourist visits given its location next to the main town square. Plenty of much better places nearby. Remember the name "Baumeisterhaus" and don't go there!

A hurried experience would best describe our visit. The food was rushed out, and we were given our check as we ate (very untypical of the region). The food was very bland, just unfreeze, heat, and serve! Décor was interesting, lots of antlers of some small animal. They do take credit cards though…

Baumeisterhaus restaurant is located at the entrance to main square in Rothenburg. Very nice building itself and interestingly looking restaurant extended to an inner atrium. My food was a typical bavarian dish and was good. My wife had some fried potato packets with vegetable salad. Salad did not look fresh so we pointed it out to the waiter. He appologized and brought the owner. Owner did not speak much English and we do not understand German, but we could clearly see how rud he was. He did not aknowledge our complaint at all, so we just give it up. It certainly left a bad taste in our mouth. and spoiled memoried of this beautiful town.
