We were staying in the castle, but would have enjoyed this restaurant even if we hadn't. We noticed that many locals were dining here. The wines were excellent and the fish first rate. The breakfast buffet was typically German—plentiful and delicious.

Had a party here and we had our own private area for 50-60 persons. The portions of food at first appeared small, but I'll admit I was full after the meal. With soup for an appetizer, a pork cutlet for the entree and apple strudel, the food was all really good. The service was good, but admittedly the pre-ordered meals... More

We live in a neighboring town and the Colmburg Castle is always a restaurant we take our guests visiting from the U.S. for a unique experience (you get to eat in a castle!). The view is lovely from the grounds surrounding the castle and a nice place to watch the sun set. It's not the cheapest meal you can find,... More

Never had such a bad service did not even stay. Asking for having a beer first I was pointed the bar in a harsh way by someone who obviously did not want to be of service or of any help. Avoid!

The ride up to the castle readies you for the experience. Ask for the sun porch where you get a beautiful view. The wait staff was friendly and very accommodating. The food was excellent. There were four of us and we all had something different. We were there for lunch and the portions were quite large one person order a... More

This was one of the best restaurants ever. The staff was so helpful right from the first. The menu is only partly in English, so they will translate everything for you and provide wonderful recommendations when asked. The castle has a venison "farm" and they have fresh venison. We stayed at the castle and so had two dinners at this... More

Order the cheese and white wine soup along with your dinner. For dinner you can have mixed meat on a real dagger! The house specialty is usually very good as well.

We arrived for dinner and were seated right away. Our waitress made us feel very comfortable in this thousand year old castle. She gave us 3 menus. There was a specials menu, the regular menu and the asparagus menu containing all of their in-season asparagus dishes. It's been 15 years since I was here in Germany during Spargle season! Of...

Burghotel, Colmberg, Germany This old castle sits on a hill in the middle of lush Franconian farmland. The restaurant is in the castle courtyard/garden next to the giant, round looming castle watchtower; swallows flitting through the fading evening shadows, looking out on the quaint village of Colmberg. White asparagus was in full season and a special menu featured this very... More

We stayed at the castle, and had dinner overlooking the village. The venison was superb, and our other entrees were also excellent. The beer of the castle was average, but that was the only slightly negative item. W also had breakfast there, which was also very good.
