After a beautiful day in Heidelberg and on our way back to mom's place we found via Tripadvisor your restaurant! Reception a bit cool, food excellent, but: my husband and I wanted to try your 'Versucher-Menue' priced at 65.00. On menu you state: per table only! A 92 year old lady can not stomach an extensive menu! So we wanted a la carte for her! But with very well known German inflexibility this was not possible! Too bad, as your earnings would have been better! Going for a nice dinner is also about creating a good memory, so you want to come back! Yes, the food was great, but ambience lacks and so we won't come back!

This restaurant is really an insiders tip!

Ambience
The ambience is not really great, more sort of "old", not modern or anything like that. But don't get put off with the first impression.

Food
We went for dinner and had a 4 course set menu for €59,50 and it was perfect. An original idea was amuse bouche which consisted of a mini-sausage with potato salad - sounds bland (especially as I usually don't eat this) but I was surprised it was extremely well balanced and tasty and I could have eaten more of those mini sausages!

Our first course was an asparagus salad with prawns. The dressing perfect, asparagus and prawns cooked to perfection the presentation really beautiful and the portion pretty large for a starter in a menu.

Second course was turbot served on an asparagus risotto. Again fish perfect and the risotto as it should be.

Mains we had fillet of beef with spring morels, vegetables and potato pureé. Well the fillet was a dream - it was so tender it just melted in the mouth and it was also cooked to perfection as with the vegetables. The portion was also pretty huge not just 2-3 small slices as one usually receives in such a restaurant.

Dessert was a dessert variation which was absolutely delicious. Not too heavy nor too sweet.

Wines
They have a nice wine list with a lot of local wine at reasonable prices. Just be careful when ordering wine by the glass. The wines recommended to accompany the meal cost about €9,-- for 0,1l! Rather take a look at the normal wine list where you also find a selection of wines by the glass and these cost about €5,- for 0,2l.

All in all, we love this place and visit regularly. Definitely one of the best in the area with the most conistent cooking and the prices for this high quality are really great value for money.
