Find a place on the bench outside and enjoy the afternoon sun, watch cyclists passing by and have white wine and maybe dinner. Good burgers, salads and tapas available. One of my favourite places in the past 15 years.

I was attracted by Hemingway's location overlooking the river and by the name. But disappointed by the food and service. The service was most inattentive. After a 15 minute wait to be recognized in a nearly empty establishment I was about to leave and wished I had. The food was acceptable and with good service could have been very good.... More

Somewhat unfriendly service, too many smoking guests and just ok spot. I'm sure there are many more better places in Heidelberg to grab a cocktail and bite to eat. We ordered two appetizers, one of olives, the other with speck and bread. We thought we might get a toast points with those items on top, but you had to assemble... More

The food was mediocre and the service was sullen. If you have a chance to eat somewhere else then take it. Food was very middle of the road which could perhaps be where they found some of it. Not recommended.

I was there with friend who after he had seen it for the first time he wanted to go there for dinner. I was skeptical. At the beginning restaurant does not make good first impression but I was wrong.

Stayed at a nearby hotel and visited here three times, for evening drinks and dinner. What a fantastic location looking out onto the Neckar. Great burgers, you will not go hungry. Good local beer and wines. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Very relaxed atmosphere.

Nice place in the heart of Heidelberg. Is very atmospheric and has nice photos and fishing-related stuff on the walls. The place offers good burgers and nice flammkuchens. Is also good for a cup of coffee, since they have an terrase facing the river.

Recommend by our hotel receptionist when we checked in late after a long day. Nice location on the river with in and outside seating. Good value food, mostly home made burgers and our flamkuchen was best we had during our 2 week German holiday. Mostly used by trendy 20 something's.

Thank Richard L
