This tiny restaurant was highly recommended and it's reputation for outstanding food was not, in the least exaggerated! Had dinner there each night in H'berg! Interactive chef was super friendly and the waiter remembered us from the night before and offered an after dinner aperitif with compliments! Probably will spend two dinners there this may with another of my sons!... More

Went there with a buddy and my girlfriend. It is difficult to get a spot since it is quite small - I suggest you wait outside until someone leaves. Schnitzel was perfectly done, and the amount served is generous. Love the atmosphere. You get value for your money.

Went tonight, place was packed by 1720 but was directed to an open spot in the corner. They spoke English to me and had English menus but also suffered my awful attempts at German with a smile. Food was very authentic and the wine was local and delicious. Highly recommend, there's a reason this place is #1 in Heidelberg.

I've been to this place once with a friend for an early dinner, I know it is a place where it is difficult to find a seat at proper dinner time, so we went there at the opening and it was empty. Everything went fine, the food was ok, but nothing particular, I didn't find it amazing to be the... More

This is one of the most hidden traditional restaurants in Heidelberg. The interieur is made of wooden carpenter tables. They just have a few tables (4) so you should bettet reserve in case you are more then 2 people. If you are lucky they squeeze you in somewhere. All dishes are very tasty and good quality. They serve great wine... More

We were hoping to eat here based on the reviews but it was unfortunately too crowded by the time we got there. We did go inside and the food smelled and looked delicious!

Very interesting interior, looks like old inn, the place is overcrowded and sometimes one should wait for a table (they do not accept reservations). Traditional menu, I took zupa cebulowa, it was OK but nothing special and schniztel with garlic, but schnitzel was overfried, potatoes as well, the dish was not very tasty. I was dissappointed, since I heard about... More

The host was borderline hysteric in telling us to go away when house was full - very impolite. At the second try another day, we ate only to be greeted with a soggy schnitzel. Don't go here.
