The outdoors seating is the key feature -- and while the menu is about average, the service is exemplary and the overall atmosphere is relaxing and festive. There are few cafes that can match it anywhere in Heidelberg. Truly, sit down, order a beer and...More

Went out for food and drinks. The place is nice and clean but a little bit too small. People walking by were brushing of my back. I'm sure it's a lot better in the summers when you can sit outside!

Wobbly outside tables, unkept, inattentive and slow staff. The food we tried was mediocre. It will be worth your while to walk a little further into town.

Hemingway's is a great pub along the Neckar River, perfect for an evening drink or meal on a summer's night. Try the Flammkuchen, super thin flat-bread. The classic with a creamy cheese, bits of bacon, and caramelized onion is tough to beat!

Find a place on the bench outside and enjoy the afternoon sun, watch cyclists passing by and have white wine and maybe dinner. Good burgers, salads and tapas available. One of my favourite places in the past 15 years.

I was attracted by Hemingway's location overlooking the river and by the name. But disappointed by the food and service. The service was most inattentive. After a 15 minute wait to be recognized in a nearly empty establishment I was about to leave and wished...More

Somewhat unfriendly service, too many smoking guests and just ok spot. I'm sure there are many more better places in Heidelberg to grab a cocktail and bite to eat. We ordered two appetizers, one of olives, the other with speck and bread. We thought we...More
