A wonderful experience, great service and super food. As to be expected all kinds of local beer available . The food was beyond reproach. Restaurant within walking distance from Novotel in Wurzburg worth visiting!

We stumbled on this place on the way back to our hotel and found the service and food fine. Of course they specialise in chicken and the half chicken was cooked perfectly and a huge serve. The staff were helpful in making choices and it represented value for money.

At a very poor service at Alte Mainmuhle where the waiter forgot to order our dishes and the kitchen closed, me and my wife were left very hungry and with no place to eat. I stumbled on this place with a very nice staff. Since it was the only place open in town they said they could serve me some... More

After a busy day on the road we found this place with all the chickens being cooked the window. We both ordered what thought we small meals but found the pork shoulder could feed three and turkey feed two. Very nice rose wine and service. Be prepared or be very hungry

Very bad. We made a reservation and they sat us with other guests. The food was really bad. I odered a grillhähnchen. Chicken from the grill. They have an open grill. But it took longer than the other oders and tasted deep fried. My beer glass was very sticky. The whole experience grossed me out. I've lived in this city... More

Went there as a family. Waiter very nice and had menus in English. Huge servings so careful ordering! 1 serve really serves 2!Wouldn't hesitate to return for a cheap, hearty meal.

We chose half a roasted chicken and roast pork with potatoe dumplings which came in generous portions and were well cooked. The salad accompanying them was ok at first but as we ate we realised that there was a lot...really a lot of dressing that the salad wss spoilt...which was a pity. But on the whole the meat was really... More

Late evening, coming from a concert, we tried this restaurant. Nothing special, very simple foods and basic service. Maybe it was too late, around 11 p.m.

This place as well as being a restaurant is also a take out. This is important because we had a table next to it. The smell from the take out was off putting and got into every thing. This was a shame because the food was good,well presented and huge in quantity. Also served good wine and beer. Its very... More

We had the pork knuckle which was fine but the salad it came with was swimming in creamy salad dressing and I mean swimming! Admittedly I am a olive oil/balsamic dressing person and noticed that most german restaurants have creamy dressing but this was the worst and all ingredients were drowned in this dressing, did not like this at all....
