Strictly local country style food and service. Stick to the pork and kraut combos. (Skip the $$teak...poor quality and preparation) Good Beer selections but very very limited Wines by the glass.

In town for the European Coating Show and were just walking around and spotted this place. We both enjoyed the Nuremberg sausages and the house style salad. Both were delicious. The place is very old school Germany. It has a bit of touristy feel but many locals were there eating. Overall it was fine I would recommend this place to... More

We arrived quite late and the staff at the Pillhofer accepted us without a reservation and were nice and friendly. We sat in a corner and a group of people were sat with us after a short while which didn't bother us at all as it created a nice atmosphere and they were sat chatting to themselves just enjoying a...

Having arrived in Nuremburg after 9pm a lot of places had stopped serving food. The kitchen here is open until 11 so we got recommended to come here. Shared tables were a bit of a suprise but have come to realise this is the done thing in Nuremburg. Excellent beer selection and menu full of traditional food. Food is really... More

Nice location and decor. The menu had some very nice choices. I had the crispy pork shoulder. 700 grams of meat that was full of flavor. Service was very good and the place can be very busy. Reservations are a must

Hotel front desk recommended this restaurant. When we got there, they put us in a table and few minutes came two guys that were smoking outside but seemed that it was coming smoke out of them, they stink. The waiter was kind of rude and extremely impatient demanding us to choose the drinks. Well, there was nothing with pork (snitzel)... More

The food is fair ... the environment is cozy and traditional. During the toy fair, everywhere is crowd and hard to find seats... here maybe one of the choose.

We went here for something nice for breakfast/lunch. We arrived at 11.15am but they'd stopped doing breakfast at 10am and everything on the menu was mainly a main...nothing you'd have for lunch. We ordered the 2 sausages and the camembert cheese dish...these were 6 euros and 8 euros. It wasn't great. We came here as it's one of the top... More
