Recommend you to have a meal here. The portion is big and taste is good. Besides the ball of potatoes weren't our favourite. The pork leg was huge and crispy. The Snitzel sauce was really yummy. We changed the zuurkool to salad,which was also a great choice to eat with the meat. We had no drinks and that billed up... More

A meal for 2 with drinks, soup and coffee was around 50 euros. If you want to eat all the main and maybe pudding don t order food. I eat well and only managed to eat half. The environment is great and so is the service. What else? We went to eat at 5.30 on the Easter Sunday and managed... More

We had the schnitzels and I have to say they were not the best. They are not bad but there are many better food options in the town.

On our 2nd trip to Rothenburg, we were looking for really great schnitzel. We'd been to 2 other restaurants on our first visit, and wanted something more. Alter Keller had the best schnitzel we ate in Rothenburg and the 2nd best in our travels in Germany. The spaetzle was also delicious. Before we left the first night, we made a... More

Found this restaurant on the recommendation of a local. A bit hard to find but well worth the effort. The food and the atmosphere was traditional german. Beautifully presented. I would make a reservation before attending. We didn't but we're just lucky. We got the last table and during our stay they would have turned away at least 20 locals.... More

I mostly recommend this place for the ambiance. Beautifully decorated with alot of little touches to look at - the place feels incredibly warm and cozy. The service is very friendly and good - the food is better than average but hardly memorable. The usual German mean and potato fare is done to a standard level, nothing to write home... More

Went based on TA reviews, and availability. We originally wanted to try a different place that night, but couldn't get in. No worries though, the Alter Keller was very good. There's kind of a farm-house feel to the place, which is really comfortable. The atmosphere was warm and inviting. About half the staff spoke only little English, but we had... More

They do not provide takeaways and staff failed to state politely. When asked for hot water, it was covered with dirt. I dared not drink it. All except one staff was rude. Otherwise it would be a nice place with cute decor.
