service: waiter didn't give the right people their order, dishes were dropped, serving was not done well. I pointed out that the dish they put in front of me was not the correct one and the waiter told me that I was wrong, that he wrote it down, this is what you ordered....until more people got the wrong dish and...

This restaurant is not in the middle of "oldstadt". It is above the Castle. Very pretty romantic place with good food and a bit of flair. They have a number of dishes with venison and wild boar. We both had their consommes as starters. Very good! My wife opted for the venison, because she could always have lamb. I tried... More

This restaurant is tucked away in the woods and is a short walk from the Parkhotel Atlantic. There is a large dining area inside but we sat with all other guests out on the balcony. The food and wines were of a high quality. Unfortunately it was closed on our second night (Monday).

We wandered here because it is the only restaurant within walking distance of our hotel (Atlantic Schloss Hotel) perched high up hill west of the castle. We had an excellent meal, two perfectly done steaks, a delicious goat cheese and lentil dish for my wife. There is a beautiful terrace which is the best place to eat but it was... More

Had not seen a review in the last year, so I was wondering if it was still good. Yes! Staying at the wonderful Park Hotel Atlantic, and this is the nearest, and I'd say only restaurant within walking distance. It's a good 15 minute walk, slightly uphill, but well worth it. Popped in on a Friday night with no reservation,... More

This restaurant is indeed hidden on the slope of the mountain. If you, however, would like to taste the German cuisine at just a better level than the average fried schnitzel - go there and consider the interior (the trophies of the Schützenverein are on the ceiling and walls) as a very nice bonus. Nice and attentive waitresses, food is... More

Not an easy location, that has seen different restaurants. Quietly located in the forest behind Heidelberg castle. Even Empress Elisabeth has visited the place, the short uphill street is named in her honour. Two years ago a new team from Palatinate region has over - and the former Schuetzenhaus has become a very good restaurant. Great food, nice traditional atmosphere... More
