Loved this restaurant. Beer was great. Vanilla Sunshine cocktail was great as well. I had a Medium well Rib Eye Steak with fries, it was delicious. This rest has also the best view in all Altstadt Nürnberg. Coming back soon. This place is a must!

We were in search of a place for an afternoon snack. ALEX restaurant was on the first floor overlooking the old Kindle Xmas market. Good lively atmosphere busy . I had the waffles with apricot and ice cream. Very tasty although did have a bit...of a translation issue with the waiter being German (obviously) but with little knowledge of English. He was great though and managed to get what we asked for. Again would recommend this place - main meals were also available or just a drink in a good vibe place.More

As this was our nearest bar to our hotel we went to this place for some Friday night post-exhibition drinks. The place was clean and the staff were welcoming. They all spoke good English and were attentive. Even though it was busy we got a...seat pretty quickly and god served within 10 minutes. The drinks choice was alright and pricing is fair considering its location right in the old town. Its a snazzy upmarket place, definitely not traditional beer house look. I liked it and would go back for sure.More

This was the only restaurant in Nürnberg that I didn’t have a good experience. Our original waiter didn’t speak English so he got another waiter to help with taking out orders. I told them both what I wanted and pointed to it in the menu...to make sure they understood. When my appetizer came, it wasn’t the one I ordered, and pointed to. When I asked about it the server said that’s what I ordered so that’s what I got. When the meal came I yet again got something totally different from what I ordered. I understand that there are going to be language barriers sometimes but I pointed to what I wanted on the menu and the staff refused to fix their mistakes.More

Oh dear, that seems to have gone really wrong. We are very sorry and please forgive that the English language did not sit properly and that it came to difficulties. We discuss this immediately in the team and work on your criticism. Please visit us...More

Had dinner here and our steaks were great. The location was very nice, adjacent to Frauenkirche overlooking the platz. The only thing that diminished our experience was being surrounded by smokers as we dined on the terrace.More

We are so sorry that you got bothered by that. In Germany it's not allowed to smoke inside, so of course all the smokers are sitting out. It's a pitty that this effected your stay with us and therefor you can only give us 3...More

Location: this place is not on the ground floor so when you’re looking for if you’re in the Nurenberg center square look up on the second level you’ll see in gold letters Alex. Don’t follow Google maps it’ll take you in the wrong direction. Lots...of seating options facing the town square, inside the building, and outside the building in the back with a lot more sun. It is very quiet in the back of the building. Lots of food options. Family friendly and worth the cost.More
