I was introduced to this excellent restaurant by a business friend on my recent trip to Heilbronn. It was a great experience, outstanding service combined with a fantastic menu which offered both local and other German dishes. Quality and presentation of the food were outstanding, and the ambiance was relaxing and professional. Highly recommended.

The food is consistently great and the service is second to none. It's always a good choice. They have a extensive wine list and the staff are happy to recommend or advise if you're unsure what to choose. If you have any dietary requirements they are very accommodating.
