We were referred here by the staff at our hotel, The Herrnschloesschen. Reservations are recommended as it is popular and small. I had the beef and spaetzle special, my husband had the garlic prawns and pasta. Both were good, but not great. Service was good...More

We had a fantastic meal! To my embarrassment, this restaurant only takes cash, and I did not have enough to pay for my party of 13. The owner asked if I was staying in town and when I told him yes, he said "go enjoy...More

Like most places we encountered in Rothenburg, the service was outstanding. The restaurant is fairly small and will be crowded late into the evening - especially after the Nightwatchman tour concludes (as the tour guide will advertise this place). The food was very good.

We walked into this restaurant not having a booking, and the lovely host found us (2 adults and a young child) a table without an issue. It had a 'couples restaurant' feel, but there was another group there so we felt comfortable enough to stay...More
