The restaurant is located in the old town along the canal. In summer, the pleasant coolness of the canal and the old town creates a unique atmosphere. The food is very good and not too expensive.

Concept of restaurant was very traditional. I had lamb and it was very delicious. The waitress was a very nice lady translating and explaining everything on menu with details.

Definitely the place for a good fish in Ulm. The prices are a bit higher than in other places in the town, but the quality and service is worth it. Very nice interior, but even nicer is to sit outside at the terrace at the river Blau.

Best meal so far in Southern Germany. Started with beef broth with herbed noodles, then the main course "trout Ulmer-style". Exquisite! Nice selection of wines available, including by the glass. Interesting twist on baked apples dessert too. Total cost (for 1 person) €50 including tip, and well worth it! Dining rooms are quaint, with low ceilings and traditional ornaments. Waiting... More

The 400 year old building is charmy, like an old lady that you can tell age, but she is still looking young. The staff is kind and helpful. Food was great. In particular trout-based courses are tasty. Location: wonderful. Do not miss it

This place was recommended by by the staff at the hotel we were staying in, it took a little finding but was well worth the effort. The staff had very good English and the menu is printed in both German and English so we knew exactly what was coming. The trout was delicious with the accompanying vegetables fresh and perfectly...

Long time since I had a trout, but I do not remember it ever tasting as good as this. Also the pumpkin soup was delicious. I was here with my wife who thoroughly enjoyed the Zwiebelrostbraten (roast beef). To top it off, service was excellent! The place was packed so we were happy to have reserved. If I visit Ulm...

By far the best place for seafood or even food in Ulm. The fish is fantastic as are the meat dishes, but to top it all the staff make it an experience, they care for your every need and and very attentative. I would advise booking as this is a very popular place for tourists as well as locals

I got a table for one out not he patio beside the river, stunning setting with very freidnyl accommodating english speaking staff. Food choices were great, I went for the fish set menu. 4 courses for around €30. Delicious! The reviews on this place praising it are very accurate! You must go! Then take a stroll around the old city... More
