A quiet Sunday dinner at the end of our trip. Service was excellent and the food was authentic. Started on the patio but moved inside when it started to rain.

Probably the best variety of beers available in Heidelberg. German but also beers from some other countries in bottles. Quite friendly service and reasonable prices. Zum Klosterhof bottles available.

This restaurant provides of good selection of german food. I had a pork-steak with pepper sauce and 3 small Roestis. It was good, although a bit surprisingly not such a large portion. Service was friendly, but perhaps a bit slow (by german standards, so still quite acceptable).

Typical German restaurant. Foreigners are welcome : the menu is written in many languages. We choose the specialties of the house : "choucroute". A little bit strange, because it taste a little bit sugar. Waitresses are pleasant and professional.

It was raining and we ducked inside for a quick bite. We were immediately greeted by the friendly staff and given a table. There are 10 beers on tap. The unfiltered Heidelberger was very good. Food was hot and fresh. Service was fast, but not rushed. Good choice!
