Nice hotel off the main plaza, but downtown. The restaurant specializes in regional and seasonal fare like pfifferlinge and game. Worth it.

Tremendous little place serving good, honest, 'stick to your ribs' Bavarian country food for very reasonable prices in a rustic, but not too touristy, environment. Service was excellent. I would go back here again and again. Beware, though, the kitchen closes very early.

This is a traditional Frankonian restaurant. Good for couples, families, and guys night out (there is a separate room). When you think of a romanticized Bavaria, you see families sitting around a wooden table; there are chairs and benches and cushions to make the wooden furniture more comfortable. You see a matronly figure who can hug you in one arm... More

I have eaten here many times and each time the food was superb. It is rare when I find a restaurant that truly inspires me to return. I have had Roulades, Wurst, Shaufele, and other dishes. All were cooked perfectly. As good as they were the sides were just as good and complimented the main dishes well. The service is... More

Also, the restaurant and, in the morning, the breakfast delightful. A very recomendable hotel. I hope I'll come back

We are celebrating our 30th anniversary and our son, who lives in Ansbach, highly rated this place. It delivered! We had the Ansbacher Bratwurst and the trout. We rarely eat dessert but tonight we splurged on calories. Save room for the rhubarb tiramisu and the plum compote!! The staff was joyful, attentive, and informative. Ausgezeignet!!

The food here is incredible! I had a venison special that was one of the best meals I have had in Germany. All four of our party were more than satisfied with the meals we ordered. The service is absolutely wonderful. The staff had great advice about the food and drinks and spoke English very well. My favorite part of... More

Fresh Breeze behind Old WallsAnsbach was not even named in 11th Century, when the Ground Walls of Schwarzer Bock had been erected. This very important piece of Ansbach history with Centuries of Hospitality keeps the flame burning for us to keep the old house young -with fresh ingredients: local herbs, fish and venison as well as Ansbach last Beer brewed in town- at special occasions in the Schwarzer Bock.
