Ordered the schnitzel and it was just okay. It had several different choices of items to order. The server was really nice and helpful and easily split our bill. The restaurant had a typical Bavarian feel.

Our evening in Rothenburg began with a delightful Franconian German meal at a local spot, Roter Hahn restaurant. The restaurant advertises itself as Franconian, thus the menu is basically local German ( Franken) specialties. However, the ambiance offers the diner a wonderful atmosphere with classic...More
