My family and I ate here for our last night in Heidelberg. Comfortable atmosphere, wood paneling throughout, nice service. The food is very good. If you know German cuisine you know it's heavy. I suggest eating earlier then walk around town after. Make reservations ahead of time.

I have a Spreisel Salad with goats cheese. Just okay. Wine okay. Good location near bridge. But be warned that Google maps can lead you a merry dance in trying to find this place and it isn't complicated!

This regional authentic German restaurant offers traditional fare served in great ambiance. I highly recommend the Sauerbraten, chased with copious quantities of draught lager to cleanse the palate. The wait staff is eager to please. Albeit their English is somewhat limited, this was not insurmountable. It was absolutely wunderbar!!

With a set menu it was easy to just enjoy this delicious meal and service. The innovative appetisers, main and dessert all deserve applause. Good ambience in a small setting. Very pleasant.

If I could give this place 10 stars I would. The food was authentic German/ Perfectly prepared with down home service. I loved the cucumber salad dressing and the chef came out and gave me the recipe. Got some help with the German speaking locals to get it right!! Everybody was very friendly and the prices reasonable. This was my... More

Visiting Heidelberg for the Christmas Markets, we were fortunate to be staying locally with friends who recommended Zum Spreisel highly... and it really was a great experience. We received a warm, friendly & personal welcome from the owners, Marie and Peter Ueberle. We were seated straight away at a table of our choosing. The Menu is extensive and contains a... More

We visited here at the weekend and thoroughly enjoyed an excellent German meal. The pumpkin soup was divine!!! As were the wild boar sausages and the pork steak with chilli sauce. Lovely location in the Old Town close to the river.
