We went as group of business people, had booked a table an had a dinner at the restaurant. The service was fine and food good. The Local Frankonian style food was interesting and tasty, naturally with plenty local beer available. A good experience and would return.

Arrived before 6:00PM, most tables were occupied or had reserved signs on them. We did not make reservation. I called to a staff where shall we sit. She suggested call to a staff overe there. I followed her suggestion and caught an appropriate person there. We could get the table close to the small entrance door, a bit cold because... More

Perhaps not so easy to find in this alley but ones you step inside you feel very nice. The restaurant is build in a typical Herman style with lots of wood. They know how to create a good ambiance. The menu was good and the food tasted excellent. The dessert was a treat 😄. Good fast and friendly serve. A... More

First off, I want to say we didn't actually get to eat at this restaurant. We walked into a charming restaurant and waited uncertainly at the door to catch one of the server's eye. We caught the eye of three servers within a span of a few minutes, none of whom acknowledged that we had said hello or that we... More

Dear NicoleW, Thank you very much for your feedback. We truly apologize for not having met your expectation....though it would have been so easy.... A little bit more patience of my employee who's computer you standing at, a little bit better overview of myself or my restaurant manager and nothing would have happened. We are really sorry. Thank you Christopher... More

Good, authentic Franconian food. The wine and the wine soup are both fantastic. Nice atmosphere. One of our favorites.

The service was not good. Bad mood waitress. Becareful, they simple close the kitchen and don't alert the customers. When we ordered the dessert, they waitress simply said the kitchen was closed.Food was not so good either. Bad experience.

Nice old Inn with good Service and pretty wide-range Offer of local Dishes. However, a bit pricey, and the Dessert (EUR 16 for 2 People) made out of a lot of fat & sugar (so, too much of a Fast-Food Dessert for me...) I recommend you go for the Weekly Lunch-offer that makes it more affordable, but no less tasty... More

We arrived without a reservation. It was very busy but the server was able to find an available table for two which turned out to be adjacent to their very interesting bar and next to a ceramic stove which is pictured on their menu. The same young woman, Tessa, was our server and we couldn't have been happier with her... More

Such a authentic place ! The feeling of being at your grandma's house instantly kicks in . Fantastic German food and HUGE portions! The veal I got just crumbled in my mouth and the apple pancake for dessert were absolutely gorgeous! My stomach was full and my wallet were happy - the price range is so underpriced for what you...
