Typical German restaurant. Foreigners are welcome : the menu is written in many languages. We choose the specialties of the house : "choucroute". A little bit strange, because it taste a little bit sugar. Waitresses are pleasant and professional.

We spent a short time in beautiful Heidelberg during a Viking cruise along the Rhine. I was determined to find spaetzle with cheese during our free time. I spotted it on the menu here and it was quite good. They told me they make the spaetzle on the premises. My husband had a delicious salad

It was raining and we ducked inside for a quick bite. We were immediately greeted by the friendly staff and given a table. There are 10 beers on tap. The unfiltered Heidelberger was very good. Food was hot and fresh. Service was fast, but not rushed. Good choice!

They served traditional German food. They have many options... fast and have quality. You can seat outside.. in front of the restaurant and enjoy the rest of your time, drinking some beer and eating a very good German food.

A typical german pub atmosphere, very unassuming. On the main drag in town, so its easy to find. The food was very simple and good but nothing spectacular. Service was good but the food coming out was a little slow at lunchtime. We had Jagerschnitzel and Brats and both were served with frites. Reasonable prices.
