The restaurant is in a very interesting old building in the heart of the city. It was a warm evening and we eat on the terrace- the indoor restaurant seemed to be booked for a large party. Food traditional German only, but done to a...More

Had a rather pleasant lunch in the outdoor section of this traditional restaurant. Classical dishes and nothing really special but nothing to really complain about either, except may a raher slow service (from the kitchen not from waiters)

Opposite the Nikolaikirche and enhanced by the Christmas decorations and markets just outside our window, the restaurant was warm and cosy. The waitress was pleasant and helpful. The menu was extensive: meat, game, fish, regional specialities. The choice was difficult (!) but we decided on...More

We found this place almost by accident, in a small square near the Nikolaikirche, and enjoyed one of the nicest meals we've had for a long time, sitting at a table outside . We especially enjoyed the trout (served with a delicious combination of leeks...More

We came here as much for the history, through its Wagner connection, as for the food. The former comments on this restaurant's hearty, warming and authentic German food are accurate. An Easter menu was on offer from which we chose typical pork and char dishes,...More

The Alte Nikolaischule was our choral group's dinner destination after singing a memorable post-Christmas concert at the Nikolaikirche. Unlike one fellow chorister, who could only talk about "heavy German food," I enjoyed both the place AND the meal. No one mentioned to us that the...More
