Someone must have had a sense of humour when they named a restaurant in Weimar "Shakespeares", considering the town is the home of two of Germany's greatest writers? Perhaps this happened in 1966 when England were victorious over (West) Germany in the final of the World Cup? I think we should be told . . . Anyway, the food and... More

We stopped by here with no knowledge of the place, and we were not disappointed. The waiter was very friendly, and we asked him to bring out some German food, so we didn't order off the menu. Everything he brought out was wonderful. He even helped us with some words in German. Great place. We had a wonderful meal, and... More

Good selection of German traditional meals, with a few novelties. Their kloss (potato dumplings) were very good, light and tasty, and the duck was superb. Nice layout and atmosphere; it felt warm and bright inside, in contrast to the cold grey outside. Prices were average, service was good.

Seem to remember this being fairly standard food at a decent price, and cocktails available. Easy location, were just passing and looking for somewhere to eat.

Other than you would assume, this is not a scottish sports bar, but a recommended Weimarian restaurant in business for some 15 years, and doing well. The food is well cooked, the service unobtrusive, the fare not dear. Close to Markt, and certainly worth a visit.

Very good traditional German food in a relaxed atmosphere near the Rathaus, cozy inside with a nice patio in the back. No credit or EC cards- bring cash.

This bar is quite nice, coloured,and lead by a friendly barman. We ordered two soups, one chickencurry with salad and one potato-ball. The food was ok, and also the two black that we drunk. The man at the bar is friendly and does his best to help you and to explain what you don't understand in the menu. It is... More

Casual and tasty food in more of a pub setting. Very good value for the money and very reasonable.
