“Worth Searching For”
Reviewed June 21, 2014

There are probably dozens of Gasthäuser in Rotenburg, and the Klosterstuble doesn't stand out since it's tucked down a side street, not too far from the Burggarten. We had looked at the hotel in the same location but booked elsewhere; nonetheless the reviews told me the restaurant was worth visiting. It was well worth it. It's an attractive restaurant inside, with a nice terrace to one side. We sat there. The menu is focused toward Franconian specialties and although the German dishes are translated into English it's better to read them in German (they sound weird in English!). We began with Fladle suppe (pancake soup - see, it doesn't cound right in English). My wife had Pfifferlinge for her main, very tasty, and I had the Sauerbraten, also excellent. The beer is good, the wine is fine. Service is quick, efficient and the staff pleasant. Best of all, it is very affordable. Worth the effort to locate.

“Great last night in Rothenburg”
Reviewed May 29, 2014 via mobile

We just had our last meal in Rothenburg. Each of our prior restaurants during our two day stay came out of the top five recommendations on Tripadvisor. All were excellent. Klosterstuble was across the street from our hotel, and because of the rain, we decided to try it for dinner. You need reservations, but we had none. They put us at a table with other people, but we were separated by empty chairs. The meal was tremendous and the wait staff was attentive and helpful. i would move this restaurant to the top of the list when we come back to Rothenburg... and we will be coming back. What a wonderful little city.

“Great Hotel in a Beautiful Town”
Reviewed March 10, 2014

Stayed in the hotel for one night in July 2013. The rooms were great and spacious. Although I would mind having some air-conditioning, it wasn't too bad with open windows. The breakfast in the hotel was wonderful, and we were all impressed by the nice china. If I ever visit Rothenburg again, I will definitely stay there again.

“Very Good Food and Service”
Reviewed February 14, 2014

This was our first meal in Rothenburg and we had dinner there in December 2013. We heard about it from Rick Steves and while I would agree that the traditional dining room is cozier, it also felt crowded while we were in it, waiting to be seated. We ended up sitting in the larger room which was fine, with nice ambience touches. Food was very good and service was attentive and helpful. We had a bottle of wine with our dinner and while the list is not extensive, most options were fairly priced with several good options.

“Wonderful food, lovely outside seating, beautiful town!”
Reviewed January 20, 2014

We visited this restaurant in March 2012 while visiting friends in Germany. We loved the ambiance and food! We sat out on a lovely outdoor terrace and enjoyed our beer and German food while hearing the church bells nearby.

I would highly recommend this restaurant if you ever make it to Rothenburg ob ter Tauber.
