The Gasthaus zur Krone offers cooking courses and fine dining. We decided to try it instead of some of our regular haunts. It has the usual advantages and disadvantages of a fine-dining restaurant. We ate there early on a Sunday evening. Normally it is fully booked and crowded, so our timing was good.

The menu is rather short, but there was a fish dish and two meat dishes in addition to vegetarian and lighter offerings. I rarely eat beef in Germany, except in very good restaurants. I find the quality, selection of cuts and preparation usually lacking. After asking a few questions about the cattle variety and fat grading, I decided on the Schinkendeckel. However, my wife ordered the steak. The amuse-gueule was a wonderful cream soup and spoke well for the talents of the chef. The bread was crispy and good, but nothing special.

When our main courses arrived, we joked about the size of my wife's steak. It looked more like a children's portion. My wife thought the preparation was perfect and found the meat tender. For the 26€ charged, I expected Prime Grade steak. It had the texture of a Choice Grade steak - good, but not great. My Schinkendeckel tasted great, but was a bit chewy. At 19.50€, the portion was a bit small and not worth that price.

Water at 4.50€ is standard and the .25 liter of Bacchus at 4.50€ was a good choice and good value. Service by the two owners was prompt, courteous and efficient. There is a large indoor dining area and a small terrace. The interior was clean and nicely decorated. The toilets are relatively modern and the towels are cloth, The terrace is a bit cramped, smoke from a nearby table was a constant annoyance, and we had the company of numerous flies. (The modern bug-zapper has been around since 1934.)

We found the kitchen of Gasthaus zur Krone excellent, the restaurant comfortable and nicely decorated, the service excellent but the value, even for fine dining, no better than average.
