We had an excellent meal at this atmospheric restaurant. We had the special of the day as recommended by the waiter and were delighted. Medallions of veal fillet cooked perfectly. Great service and beer too.

The second time, my husband and I sat outside but the waiter was grumpy and rushed. The third time was the same grumpy waiter and we sat outside. I won't be going back. Everything is not... More

I normally steer clear of hotel restaurants, but this was different. I booked a room here because my normal hotels were full. When I got back to my room after work it was very cold outside. Being hungry and not wanting to brave the cold I decided to give the restaurant a try. I am very glad I did. The... More

Central location, nice place to have dinner. You feel at least like 50 years in the past, decoration well preserved. Food and beverages are normal, nothing really special.

Hi have visited this restaurant in January this year. I went there twice in three days. I liked the place, which is rustic and cozy, and I was also not disappointed by the food. So the first time was an excellent dinner, with attentive and friendly young staff. The second time two days later I decided to go again and... More

The dining room in the oldest hotel in Darmstadt is absolutely lovely. Service is excellent and the seasonal menu leaves you spoilt for choice. Hirsh goulash, wildswein oh what to have? Problem solved go back tomorrow.

The Bockshaut was recommended to us by a local business person. Located in a wonderful old building, the dining room is old school German and very comfortable. The menu offered a wide assortment of German-- and Hessian-- dishes. Three in our party had soup, all were satisfied. Another had a local sausage combination platter with veggies, also very good. Our... More

A wonderful dining experience in a historic and beautiful site. Located in a building dating to 1548, the Bockshaut has been serving dinner guests since the 1790's. Here you will find a relaxed atmosphere with a gentle blend of locals and repeat visitors from around the world. A small, intimate restaurant that serves delicious local food and specializes in game... More

We spent a "Hessian Evening" filled with regional (Darmstadt is in Hesse, hence the title) specialities. All of them were very well prepared, although personal tastes could certainly disagree on whether everybody liked each dish. This was not a "regular restaurant visit": we had booked the special meal in advance for our attendance of about 40 people from several countries.... More
