We didn't really have anything in mind so we went to this restaurant for dinner tonight since it seemed busy, and that usually means good things. The inside is tight, with several of the chairs putting you in elbow-touching room of a different table. But...More

Visited this restaurant on business. Outdoor seating area is bustling with activity but still felt cozy. The Vienna schnitzel is a signature dish served with potato salad and linden berries. The veal was very thin but tender and the batter was light. Friendly wait staff...More

Food was good but service was pretty poor . This ties in with many of the reviews on here and the staff were more interested in looking on their phones. I also thought that the food was very expensive although my wife thought that this...More

Good German food. They have authentic Wiener schnitzel made with veal. They also have a small selection of salads. Service was good. I would come back.

After waiting to be seated, or at a minimum to be noticed, for what seemed like a quarter of an hour, we ignored all protocols and civility. We seated ourselves at one of the many empty, albeit un-bussed, tables. Yes the polyester table cloth was...More

The restaurant and beer garden "Goldener Hecht" is located directly at the historic old Neckarbrücke in the heart of Heidelbergs historic center. In a cozy and authentic ambience, Austrian cuisine is served in big portions and appropriately served by the service in the Dirndl. The Wiener Schnitzel is probably the best in town, a unique Austrian Tafelspitz in a strong Boullion or the Kaiserschmarrn (enough for at least two) are further highlights on the menu.
