The history of the restaurant made it a "must visit" and I was not disappointed. The interior is nice & we had quite a good meal at a reasonable price.

We did not have the chance to eat there as it was too crowded, but the style of the location is really nice, in an ancient way, and the plates of people seemed delicious. May be noisy though, but for a nice atmosphere.

We had lunch at this old keller mentioned in Goethe's work and is existence since the 1500's. The interior is magnificent with plenty of atmosphere. The service is refined and civilised and the food good. There is a souvenir shop at the entrance.

If you like Goethe you need to visit the Statue of Mephisto and Faust, at the entrance of the Aurebachs Keller. There are entertaining guided tours of the cellar where Goethe used to enjoy his wine, and the cellar was the inspiration for Goethe's Faust.

I've been to this place twice. The first time, my meal was absolutely delicious and the second time it was good, but not fantastic. This said, it's definitely worth a visit, you will get to experience traditional food in a beautiful setting, full of history.
