Waitress not welcoming or nice, needs to find a new job and try to smile. Steak was very tough for the price On a small side street, not easy to find. Best dark beer in town.

Great food; reservation is mandatory; it gets crowded fast. Restaurant interior is vintage, old school Bavarian. This is not the place to go to for a beer/this is strictly a dinner restaurant. Everything on the menu is great.

Months after our visit to this restaurant, I still can’t stop thinking about the awesome goulash! It was the best we had our entire trip. Great service and a very cosy atmosphere. Highly recommend a booking or go right at the beginning of dinner service...More

We loved the goulash from deer with cranberries. It was delicious. And the hot apple strudel with ice cream and whipped cream was amazing as well.

This small restaurant was a great stop! We were walking the side streets of Rottenburg and stumbled across this fantastic eatery. I had the traditional pig knuckle with sauerkraut and potato dumplings and my wife had the goolosh with braised beef. They were both the...More

This restaurant was recommended to us, by one who works there in the kitchen, if I wanted a nice steak. We wanted a good steak and weren't disappointed. Are beer to match was perfect!

Hi, I'm sorry, I'm not sure because we just went there and got a table. They are very accomodating, and I think if you go fairly early early, i.e., before 7 pm, you should be okay. The tourists seem to leave around that time.
