We chose to dine at this restaurant based on the Michelin review and the recommendation of our hotel concierge. The restaurant itself is charming. We were here at Easter time, so the Easter menu was available but there were 3 different options and they were very flexible with choosing items from the menu. The house starter was tasty and served... More

Very delicious food (in small portions) with wonderful wine recommendations. Great service. If you're hungry, you will need to go for several courses. Limited choice of main dishes, but the two we tried were amazing (EUR27-30 each).

Excellent food, nice atmosphere. Really worth going. Location is great, very close to the castle. There is a parking lot close by, but takes 3-5 minutes to walk there. Quite cool.

I took my wife here for her birthday. We were seated upstairs, and for a while had the room to ourselves. At first we were concerned, as we had been on the first floor for dinner about a year ago, and the service was lousy, even to the point of others seated way after us getting served first. The young... More

The ambiance of the restaurant was pretty good. Limited but nice menu. We had goose and lamb dishes. Goose meat is very famous during the early winter season. They have served a complimentary starter of minced goose meat. Wine selections were a bit more expensive. Even a normal bottle of local Baden wine was unbelievably expensive.

Herrenmuhle is a lovely, classy restaurant with a lovely romantic ambiance upstairs but very uncomfortable seating. The chairs were so small that it was uncomfortable for dining. The downstairs seemed more casual and was geared more for larger groups and the second floor had more of a date night type setting. We felt the menu was limited with choices like... More

Really enjoyed our meal here. Friendly and efficient staff and a relaxed, romantic atmosphere. The menu was creative and the dishes well presented and delicious. The chef came to introduce himself and chat after the meal which made a pleasant end to a lovely dining experience.

Very nice restaurant at the end of the Hauptstrasse, just below the castle in the old town. Great dining room with old beams and nice atmosphere. Nice menu and choices. Great food, tasty and with the right amount. They can also do specials for kids on request. Too bad that the service was so slow, the waiters were smiley and... More

I was extremely impressed by the service and especially the outstanding quality of the food served to everyone I was with. This is a restaurant that is well worth going to, and the passion of the owner Joachim Hess, is reflected in his menu and presentation of the excellent dishes he serves.
