“Excellent regional cuisine”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

This was our best restaurant experience in Bavaria. The restaurant was bustling on a Saturday night at 8PM, but service was attentive, and the meal proceeded without problem at the typical German pace of 90-120 minutes. There is a large variety of local beers on tap, and the quality of our meal (local game stew and roasted pork shoulder) was far superior to the other restaurants we experienced in the area. This restaurant deserves a higher rating for the Rothenberg oct region.

“Lunch on the Terrace Facing St James Church”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

This restaurant has a lovely terrace garden over-looking the apse of St James Church. The food was surprising tasty for a hotel restaurant and we enjoyed a delicious meal of maultaschen soup, chanterelle mushroom soup, and a plate of three types for sausages (all good). The view was lovely and the tree-shaded terrace is raised high above the street and tourists below.

“A wonderful setting and good food.”
Reviewed September 13, 2012

We had afternoon tea and one evening meal here and both were lovely. It is on the pricier side but the central location - just by St Jacob's Church - justifies a small premiium

“Bustling popular restaurant”
Reviewed July 29, 2012

Attractive traditional setting it was nice to have the option of sitting outside on the terrace or inside with doors open to the terrace. Good service despite business. The food was simple and tasty.

“The BEST meal we had in 3 weeks in Europe.”
Reviewed June 26, 2012

We stumbled onto this because the location looked inviting, under the trees, beautiful early summer evening. The (Italian) waiter stepped up and suggested the special, a cognac peppercorn steak. Beef in Germany isn't always my first choice, but WOW...outstanding! Everyone else had equally great meals. I learned later that to be a chef in this restaurant requires the equivalent of a cordon bleu stays, so not surprised the food was great! GO!
