We stopped in for a quick lunch and were very happy with our choices. The leberkase and meatloaf were delicious!

There are only 4 tables in the biergarten that are in the sun. The other tables are in a shaded area that get no direct sunlight. For couples, opt for the front of the restaurant (outside). You get sunlight from morning until early afternoon. Eating inside is also an option.

We came here for dinner. The waiter and waitress are hospitality. The food is delicious and served quickly. Recommend this restaurant in Rosenberg.

Came here with a large group and had a wonderful time! Our waitress was incredible and shared her recommendations for beer and food. The food was delicious, but the meals were big and I wasn't able to finish mine. Would definitely recommend and return!

Great food and really friendly service especially for an English speaker. Staff recommended a local dish, pork medallions in a Bavarian cream sauce with spaetzle. It was very good and nice it came with a side salad. Highly recommend! It is a nice and casual place.

The Restaurant is located right next to the marktpatz. The staff is great. We had two little kids and the staff was not just friendly but was keeping them engaged with little playthings all the time. The food was good and value for money. Definitely recommended.

We stopped here because we were cold and didn't want to walk anymore. What a find! The service started when we walked in the door, we were greeted and seated, and ordered drinks right away. The food was excellent, lots of flavor and a good local meal. I would go back here again and again. Clean bathrooms as well. What... More

It shows up on Google maps...and I went there a couple weeks ago. It is a small localish place just down from the main square.
