Nice restaurant, right in the center of the "Altstadt" (old part of town). Lots of sightseeing spots (i.e. the cathedral) in walking distance. Menu was nice with several seasonal dishes. Special requests were accommodated - service was above expectations. Staff was very friendly and helpful. They even suggested places for cake and ice cream. We went for lunch and were... More

The restaurant is not really good enough to come back to, it's just standard German food with a rather average quality, only good enough to satisfy the hunger, but not to provide an enjoyable experience. Having that in mind, I found the food to be overpriced.

Last week we have been in the restaurant Schwarzer Adler in the heart of the old city of Limburg. Before I start with the review, I'd like to note that a reservation of a table is highly recommended. The restaurnant is located in one of the old timbered houses and radiates cosyness and appealed warmth. This impression is continued when... More

Probably this a good restaurant. It was recommended by the hotel owner. But as for me it is overvalued and overpriced. Especially bearing in mind imposed service. Unfortunately I was not able to compare it with other places in Limburg

Having just spent the day travelling from Austria, we wanted a relaxing evening in Limburg, which is what we had. Given it was a sunday evening we weren't expecting to find many places to be open to eat in, but this was one and an excellent choice. Good food, good wine, good friendly service and good atmosphere.

The woman in charge (owner?) on Sunday 24 August ignored everybody who was not German. Our German is really good, but she refused to talk to us. Food was good, I have to admit. But service so bad that the joy of going for dinner was killed. The woman was VERY nasty. The assistant tried to do her best, but... More

We went to this place after reading the previous reviews. The staff are very friendly and always smiling. We ordered steaks with french fries. They were unfortunately not great and i wouldn't call the quality "good' or" excellent", as the previous reviewers did. As it costs 18 euro per person, i think it slightly expensive for this quality and for... More

I've visited the "Schwarzer Adler" with my family for my birthday. All of us had beef steaks as a main dish which were really, really excellent. I grew up in Limburg but I've never been to that restaurant before - so I missed a lot :-). Apart from this, the service was good and friendly, prices were acceptable and the... More
