Stopped for lunch while doing the Advent Markets in sub zero weather. The soup and pork were very tasty and the beer flowing. Sadly the dinning room itself had no character. I'm sure that's fine for locals but for the rest of us: Bah, Humbug!

While this seems to be a tourist trap with waitresses that don't seem to enjoy their jobs, the beer garden was pleasant, the beer quite good, and the food better than average German fare. The menu has a variety of typical German favorites, and the...More

My husband and I stayed here for just one night in October. We highly recommend this hotel. The location couldn't be better. It is a stone's throw from the main square - really just a few short steps. We found this perfect for walking around...More

Highly recommend! We’ve tried the amazing Duck with potatoes. For the kids very good portions of pasta. Don’t forget to try the local beer! A must go!

We knew nothing about Goldener Greifen but it was late and we gave it a try. Great restaurant serving authentic German cuisine. The food was very good and the service friendly and efficient. Not exactly a gourmet/candlelight kind of place but warm and comfortable. We...More

This was a quick stop in for lunch. The potato pancakes were incredible, and the ham and egg on fried break was unbelievable. Add in a couple of good beers and a very nice lady working service, and it was a perfect lunch.

Located just off the main square in Rothenburg the hotel combines old world charm in a historic building with spotlessly clean accommodation. Breakfast was more than adequate and the restaurant served well prepared food. An extra plus for the beer garden and the private off...More

On a two week holiday around Southern Germany, one of the best meals we had was here. The Franconian shoulder of pork with a rich gravy, dumplings and red cabbage was simply delicious.

The dining room of this restaurant was actually the office of the medieval mayor Heinrich Toppler, and it's 700 years old. The decor is austere and set in a semi medieval setting but the food is great! We had the roast pork shoulder with dumplings...More

Our restaurant specializes in Franconian fare with tasty dishes like marinated beef, and moist roast pork soaked in an unforgettable gravy, and a side of red kraut and potato dumplings. Try it with a glas of Franconian wine. Meet the locals in our restaurant, enjoy your beer in our beer garden - or just have a little break with soups, salads or sausages...
