We got in at about 1330 and sat down outside in the garden and let me tell You the view of the vineyards is breath taking also the server was kind of slow but He was very busy with more locals eating there. We loved just the idea that We ate in the largest Wine barrel in the world so another check the block in my bucket list. Is a must visit area and the locals are amazing. We will go back very soon...

Definitely worth a stop here. We were told about this place (the largest wine barrel in the world) by the guy that runs the second largest wine barrel in the world, at the Heidelberg Castle. We drove from Heidelberg to Dürkheimer Fass just to check this place out. We were tourists, but immediately noticed many locals eat here, as well. The restaurant was crowded at lunch. Great wine choices. Very large food portions. Good food taste. Lots of menu choices. Great for kids. Everybody we met, from the wait staff to the diners sitting next to us, were friendly. Best part – and a very nice touch -- they brought over an English speaking waitress for us, even though we weren’t sitting at one of her assigned tables, and she was fantastic. Worst part – people bring their dogs inside the restaurant, and the dogs would bark at each other and get feisty. Despite this, we had fun and ate well.

The Dürkheimer barrel is certainly one of the top attractions in Bad Durkheim, and definitely worth a visit. It is a restaurant in a huge barrel that can contain 1.700.000 litres. The menu offers good traditional food, of course, focusing on specialties from the Pfalz. Also for groups they are well prepared, the service was quick and attentive. (we were group of 8) The atmosphere is something special when you sit in a barrel, so to speak? We sat outside in front of the barrel, which is certainly very nice. There is to complain about, great steaks, great schnitzels, great salads.

Bad Durkheim is kind of a weird place and this is a similarly weird restaurant. You eat in the base of a giant wine barrel. My kids really enjoyed it. I had the Kartoffelsalat with Saumagen (a local Pfalzian delicacy) and it was great. The others in our party enjoyed their meals and the large portions and washed it down with local wine and beer.

Have eaten here three times and have not been disappointed. The service was great, the food even better and great wine list. I'm sorry I have to leave Germany and not enjoy this restaurant again. You should really try this one out.
