Great variety of meals, stand out service and huge portions. We went before and after Christmas and its always busy so I recommend to reserve a table. The Muller Thurgau White wine is to die for. Prices are very reasonable and theres also a daily lunch special.

Very enjoyable lunch menu and a wonderful beer garden in the summer. I have enjoyed the breakfast buffet and also a wonderful dinner menu with friends from Australia. Great traditional german food, nothing fancy but, very enjoyable every time I have been there

We had a really good meal served beautifully and promptly to a big group. I enjoyed the lemon oregano chicken; it was delicious!

It took literally nearly an hour until our main course came. The waitress said (in a rather rude tone) that she would not bring the main course until everyone had finished their salad (which some of us wanted to eat with the main course rather than as a starter). I thought that at least she could have asked rather than... More

I'd walked past this restaurant almost daily for the month before I set foot inside but I'm glad I finally did. Having eaten some really delicious meals in the old city centre, Der Kaiser managed to match - and even surpass - the other meals I'd eaten for deliciousness but for close to half the price and all with larger...

A perfect place to eat German food. The food was delicious and the staff very friendly and helpful. Prices were reasonable for this type of restaurant. 15 to 25 euros per person depending on your apetite...

As soon as we walked into the place we were welcomed and given menus. All in German of course but with enough wrangling of words we got two of the best meals we have tasted in a long time. Portions were enormous and I had to admit defeat about 90% way through my meal. What an awesome time we had.... More

We booked a room at Der Kaiser for two days and would definitely recommend it if you want a base for exploring the Black Forest. The service was very helpful, the room was clean, and had plenty of space. What we enjoyed the most was the included breakfast each morning on the beautiful courtyard and both nights we relaxed from... More

Parking at the rear. Excellent traditional German food cooked to order. Main courses are large portions and the sweets are to die for. Customer service excellent and the beer first class. Very good ambience. All in all well worth a visit.
