“A Highlight on the Deutsche Weinstraße”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2012

A German friend of ours took us to this restaurant to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday while we were in Germany. We sat outside on a beautiful autumn evening on the cobblestoned patio with the church on our right-hand and a lit fountain in front of us. it was such a romantic setting!

Our friend, who is a wine connoisseur, chose 3 whites and 3 reds from the region for us to share. The wines were wonderful and went well with the dishes we chose. Everything was delicious, but my favorites were the chanterelle mushrooms and the venison. The service was excellent and the servers were very accomodating. My tastebuds are already looking forward to returning there for another dining experience!

“A disappointing experience...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2012

-Stuffy, overly formal atmosphere
-Arrogant, pompous, self important sommelier
-Possibly the most confusing menu we have ever encountered
-Disproportionate meal sizes with half our party overawed by the size of their main and the other half seemingly lacking in size, only having finished to be then presented with more meat but no longer having any accompaniments

Disappointing considering the food itself was excellent.

“Very Enjoyable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2012 via mobile

Had a fantastic evening of exciting gastronomy. The service was helpful, insightful and fun to add that little bit of extra flavor to the evening. We had the 6 course tasting menu - and the serving sizes were perfect... Although at the end we did find it difficult to have the complementary truffles with our coffee from the plentiful truffle board as we were so (pleasantly) full.

The waiter got confused with one of the wine orders and to apologise gave us another reisling to try as well!

Great evening all in all.

“Excellent food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2011

The restaurant has a long tradition in the Palatinate, in my opinion for two reasons: 1) famous guests taken there by the former German Chancellor, Helmut Kohl, and 2) excellent cuisine. We were there on business, and the restaurant downstairs was closed. We had our food in a room adjacent to the main restaurant (cosy wood panels) on the main floor, but the food was from Schwarzer Hahn. The cuisine did not disappoint, and the highlight was the main dish (excellent lamb)! The wine list is a long selection of highlights from the Palatinate and other regions - something for everyone and mostly every price range. The service was top. It was my first experience and hopefully not the last. The other restaurant which I forgot the name is also good for more casual lunch or dinner.
