“Good local food and friendly service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 September 2009

We went to this restaurant, which is also a hotel (and also listed as such in a separate entry here on Tripadvisor) in August 2009 as a party of four. It's situated right on the central square in the pedestrianised area and was very convenient to reach from Hotel Bebber where we stayed overnight. It was a hot summer evening, so we chose one of the outside tables, where there was a good atmosphere. We had a 'Grillpfanne' (Mixed Grill), a 'Schnitzel' and two portions of the local dish 'Himmel und Erde' ('Heaven and Earth' – consisting of slices of black pudding with an apple-potato puree). Whilst we were waiting we were served some bread, which not only was fresh and tasted very nice, but in particular came at no extra charge (unlike our experience in Vienna a month earlier). We found this was a good start and provided us with a good base for our first sip of the excellent German beer! Our food tasted very nice, in particular the local dish, although the black pudding did seem slightly undercooked. The service was friendly and we found that at €65 (including tip) for four main dishes and a drink each we had a very pleasant evening. We would recommend Hövelmann's, but maybe don't go for the black pudding if you have a sensitive stomach.
