I have eaten here many times and each time the food was superb. It is rare when I find a restaurant that truly inspires me to return. I have had Roulades, Wurst, Shaufele, and other dishes. All were cooked perfectly. As good as they were the sides were just as good and complimented the main dishes well. The service is... More

We spent one night in Schwarzer Bock Hotel on the way from Rothemburg to Munich. We enjoyed very much our stay. Lovely ambience, rooms eith all details, the staff always taking care of you,... Also, the restaurant and, in the morning, the breakfast delightful. A very recomendable hotel. I hope I'll come back

We are celebrating our 30th anniversary and our son, who lives in Ansbach, highly rated this place. It delivered! We had the Ansbacher Bratwurst and the trout. We rarely eat dessert but tonight we splurged on calories. Save room for the rhubarb tiramisu and the plum compote!! The staff was joyful, attentive, and informative. Ausgezeignet!!

The service is absolutely wonderful. The staff had great advice about the food and drinks and spoke English very well. My favorite part of... More

This is one of the best restaurants I had the pleasure of eating at in Germany! The portions are large, so come hungry! I ordered a salad with cheese crepes and bratwurst. Both were awesome! I had a rhubarb spritzer, which was tangy and delicious and I had a rhubarb tart! I would love to go back!

Fresh Breeze behind Old WallsAnsbach was not even named in 11th Century, when the Ground Walls of Schwarzer Bock had been erected. This very important piece of Ansbach history with Centuries of Hospitality keeps the flame burning for us to keep the old house young -with fresh ingredients: local herbs, fish and venison as well as Ansbach last Beer brewed in town- at special occasions in the Schwarzer Bock.
