I'm fairly sure that every time I stay in Bayreuth I eat here. It's a very well known name and very popular during Festival time. I always want to enjoy traditional German dishes, so I had a traditional Sauerbraten (roast beef in a rich gravy)...More

Beer from the oldest brewery in the world - 1040. Franconian specialities - crispy goose, dumplings of course, red cabbage, lumps of pork; pifferlinge mushrooms in season; local wines. Also open after the opera; terrace seating available. Slightly mean cheese plate. Friendly service.
