The service was a bit slow. The building is old and historic, which I guess is the point. The food was authentic but heavy portions and didn't deal in the subtle in terms of portion size, flavors, etc. Good for a casual night out.

Spent a few days and nights here in 1988. So it was time for a revisit, and, the place is just as lively and fun. Happy memories and would highly recommend this place for a night out with friends

This is more than a restaurant. It is a symbol of college life in old Heidelberg. As a student drinking pub, it has drawn young & old for years. As a GI in Heidelberg we frequented Seppl often. Drinking games are popular. Students will chug from a 3-liter glass boot, passing it about their table. It is hilarious. I have... More

We live in Heidelberg and Zum Seppl is one of our top choices for dinner when we have visitors. The staff are extremely nice and friendly, the decor is old world charming, the food is top notch, the home-brewed beer from the associated Kulturbrauerei is very good and the piano music makes the whole experience extra special.

Firstly, what a fabulous city. Heidelberg is bar far one of the most fabulous cities I have ever visited.
