Dining as part of a large group didn't affect the quality of service we received, nor the quality of the food. Dining off a set menu I had the potato soup followed by the best rump steak I've had for years (if not ever), with creme brûlée for dessert, accompanied by a black beer which complemented the food very well....

An eye for detail, a menu that is more than a notch above the rest. Regional German food prepared with love for the dishes. From the scallops with beetroot to the impressive steak (Pflasterstein) and proper Schnitzel. The changing seasonal menu competes with the regular menu for attention. Both the jagtstube as the Wirthouse are decorated with the same attention... More

The food here varies from traditional (gourmet) German dishes to things like fresh made Italian Gnocchi. I've eaten here three times and it has been consistently great service and good food. The atmosphere is very special - it is warm and elegant, while still feeling comfortable.

My 4th visit to Heidelberg, my 4th dinner here, and for good reason. It's a favorite of my colleagues. The service is top notch, and the cuisine is excellent. It's traditional regional fare, beautifully prepared, in a traditional atmosphere. Someone always has the pumpkin soup, which varies by season. You can have goose right now, which I bypassed because the... More

We dined here during a weekend getaway. Very attractive place. Excellent service. Small but perfect wine assortment to compliment the upscale high quality German food selections. Dishes are regionally traditional but not limited to only the most well known. Exceptionally fresh ingredients. Beautiful presentation.

A beautiful location by the old bridge, this is classic German restaurant. It's clean and traditional. We had a very nice waitress who was both efficient and friendly. I started out with a nice fresh salad. I then had a nice crispy duck with dumplings and red cabbage, all was delicious. We had dessert, my spouse loved the apple strudel.... More

You would think that in the city center it would be hard to find an authentic place. Therefor we were really surprised to find this one. The service was extremely nice, really. The place looks very impressive from the inside and very comfortable. You would expect from a place that look so nice with such a premium location to be... More
