this restaurant is like a MUST visit if you are in Heidelberg. The restaurant serves traditional german food and beer. you even can drink beer out of a glass-made boot (1L). the food is delicious and the menu is satisfying all kind of desire. the tables out of wood are full of scribbles made by the guests with knifes or...

Nice picturesque location, old and stylish cutlery and dishes. The food was OK. Just OK. I did not get drawn away or excited or as I thought I will. Food came in big plates but was not great, in fact too much potatoes and over fried "saumagen". Service was a bit slow but that I can understand since the place... More

Great food at this cosy place. I had the käsespätzle, girlfriend had the haxnpfanne. It was very quiet on a Wednesday, but the atmosphere was still good with tasteful music. Definitely recommend it!

The Snookeloch Restaurant has lots of student hats, shields and initials carved in the old wooden tables. We love the snails (escargots) appetizer and their flamkuchen (thin pizzas) as well as the boot shaped glass, liter of beer for six euros!

After trying our luck in other restaurants that served tradicional food in the main street, we end up entering this one which was the one that still had sits. It was a pleasant surprise when we saw the inside, which was full of history. The service was good, and the food was also good. I chose a "Haxenpfane" to eat,... More

We wanted a small German restaurant and our tour guide recommended this place. It had great atmosphere that we were looking for. The sauerkraut and brat were very good.m the service was very good as well. I would recommend this if you are looking for the local feel.

This bar/restaurant in the old town of Heidelberg has a rich history of fraternity carousals, and proposes - besides beer - German home-style cooking. The dishes are not spectacular, but decent and tasty. Special offers for lunch, but beware the calories! You won't be hungry before the next day.

This place is advertised as a student's place. While that's right, it's left out that most of the students frequenting it seem to be from german fraternities ( right wing). Singing of Germanic songs and wearing off german flag sash included. Creepy. Restaurant itself has a nice flair and staff is very friendly. Food OK.

OK the price of entry for a good restaurant is obviously great food in this restaurant does not disappoint. Traditional German fair is what you will find here but the bonus is the history and the atmosphere that this restaurant offers.
