Reviewed 13 June 2015

As always hard to find, behind the hotel you would have guessed it is...don't stop there, take the road just above it. A local place for sure. Best steaks and schnitzel around. If you are in the area this is the place to go. The fries are also quite a nice treat and the sauces are very tasty.

We agree with others, it's a bit of a challenge to find. But, it is very well worth it. The place is owned by a very nice couple who will go out of their way to make you feel welcomed. Simple German cuisines for the most part but feel free to mix and match between entree's. A decent choice of wines and beer.

The challenge is to find it. In order to help you find it, beyond simply putting the address into your GPS, think of it this way. Go to the big white hotel and then go one road further. According to several groups of locals also eating there, the story was that big hotel is owned by a man who built a house, but does not live in it, just in front of this one just to block the view. Not sure if it's true but asking locals and not the couple who own this place that's what we were told several times.

For a fun tasty low key German meal this is the place. A B&B as well but the food is excellent. Many of the locals from several villages come here either for lunch - out of the fields etc. or for dinner. The couple speak enough English you can get by but some German is really appreciated.

There is nothing at all fancy here but just good home style cooking, he cooks, she handles the customers. Should you know you are coming and want something aside from "the usual" schnitzel or steak and this sort of thing, call and ask. It's quite likely it can be done.

Not a great variety of beers or wines on hand but enough to do the job.

Finding it is the real challenge however as it sits more above Trittenheim than Leiwen and the best road to get to it is to use Stefan-Andres Weg which is a dead end.

They lost a bit of the fun by not buying the land across the street which would have kept an unobstructed Mosel view but...it's still quite nice for the view and the food is excellent.
