We made a special stop here because I read about it in a biography about Martin Luther. On his journey from the Wartburg Castle to Wittenburg, Luther stopped here to eat.

As part of a group booking, although some of us did not stay here, we had food here for some nights. I had to say that it was just delicious. Thought I would need to rely on some Thai or Japanese restaurants like I always did whenever away from home. Strongly recommended.

This is an old classic building in Jena. We ate in the Luther room under the gaze of Martin Luther. The menu had many local choices. I wanted something lighter and chose from the fish menu. The trout was excellent, fresh, and perfectly cooked. The wine list was very limited so i chose a local beer.

I am here in Jena for business and have frequently visited the Schwarzer Bar Hotel. The restaurant is just first class, great service and fantastic food. I had an exquisite fresh trout the other night. Buon apetite Shawn
