Review of Helmer

Helmer
Ranked #8 of 39 Restaurants in Schwangau
Restaurant details
Reviewed November 22, 2017 via mobile

Our hotel in Schwangau recommended the Helmer. We were not disappointed. We entered the bar area but were guided to the main restaurant due to how busy it was. As we sat with a drink looking over the menu it rapidly filled up. We both chose the venison goulash with spätzle and salad. Everything was very tasty. Server was very willing to answer questions about the menu in English. Friendly service. God foid. Comfortable surroundings.

We were staying in Hohenschwangua close to both castles and was told that Schwangau had plenty of restaurants. (only 3-4 minute drive) All looked pretty full so we decided to park the car and walk around the main street to find a restaurant, most places need reservations or were full, one place recommended Helmer Hotel & Restaurant which was just one street off the main road. We were lucky enough they had room. Service was good and the meal was just alright. Beer was great! I went for the croquette and schnitzel but found I could taste the oil in both. There was a self serve salad bar which was very good. Found the our server could have come back sooner during our meal as the guys wanted another beer and had to wait. The location was ideal and the restaurant was nice and cozy. I believe there was a wedding or event going on in one of their banquet rooms. I was not disappointed in my meal but would try somewhere else next time.

We stopped in following a long drive after reading the great reviews, only to be turned away by a very unpleasant and unhelpful waitress. Apparently, only hotel guests can eat here. They should update their webpage to notify people of this. We ended up down the street at another restaurant that was wonderful and the waitress was delightful. A little kindness and just plain pleasantness goes a long way.

I was really looking forward to a good Schnitzel (and it was) but surprisingly my favorite part of the meal was the salad. The addition of pickled beets and sauerkraut to a regular green salad really makes a difference. The service was great. They were always ready to help you but didn't constantly bug you either and they didn't try to rush you out the door either.
