The restaurant is also a hotel on the main street just off the old market square (convenient during Christmas Market). The schnitzel was good, but unbreaded and could have used a bit more gravy. They did substitute spaetzle for the pommes frites and the spaetzle was OUTSTANDING. Gulasch Suppe was very good. Salad was 2 thumbs up.

Because the Rothenburg Tourist Office had told us - very firmly - that there were NO bars and nowhere to go for a glass of beer or wine - we made our own investigations and came across this lovely, family run hotel and restaurant. Home brewed beer; friendly service; two agreeable bars. If we return to Rothenburg, this is where... More

The place was packed, but the friendly waitress found a place for us with un other couple. The restaurant is cosy and typically decorated. To start we had pumpkin soupe. Good and tasty. For main course fried truite - excellent! Also the salade plate was fresh and rich. For desert apple strudel with ice cream. With a good local white... More

After a long day of travel we were after friendly service, large portions and a well-priced meal. Gasthof Greifen went above and beyond. We were immediately greeted with smiles and happy faces, the service was fast and attentive but not pushy. Lots of meals to choose from, great traditional German foods. Loved the homemade and family-type feel to this place,... More

This guesthouse was awesome. We came in and were tired and they treated us like kings. Food and drink was marvelous. We had different things and everyone was happy with their meal. The Tucher was fantastic.

This is a lovely family run restaurant with very good traditional German menu options. The food was very good, nicely plated with gracious and pleasant service. The food was very good.

This is a folksy local restaurant. Like many other restaurants in Rothenburg, it is full of tourists. And also like almost all sit-down restaurants, service is slow but food is in large portion. We especially like the soup and got two orders. The salad is good. We tried the pork shoulder and found it hearty but too salty, perhaps, we... More

We were trying to make an 8 o'clock tour so we're glad we were in and out in about an hour. It was crowded so we actually shared a table on with another couple. The food was good standard fare.

Food was good. Very large portions. Service was very slow. We were inside and the servers seemed to focus on customers out in the garden area. Server took our order, brought the food later and then disappeared. We had to seek someone out to pay the bill. Not a good experience.

We wanted to eat outside and did not realize from the road that there was more seating in back of the restaurant. A server, Laura, came to our aide and directed us to the back area. She spoke very good English which helps a lot! We ordered the roast pork with red cabbage and potato dumplings which were so light... More

Our restaurant specializes in Franconian fare with tasty dishes like marinated beef, and moist roast pork soaked in an unforgettable gravy, and a side of red kraut and potato dumplings. Try it with a glas of Franconian wine.

Meet the locals in our restaurant, enjoy your beer in our beer garden - or just have a little break with soups, salads or sausages...
