Awesome German food, I got a yummy schnitzel with mushrooms and fried potatoes; traditional atmosphere in a wooden-nordic building.

Service is very friendly, food is OK but no gastronomy, e.g. no questioning about my preferred cooking level for the meat. Although it was a stew, this is still important. Meat was 'well done', which wasn't actually my favourit. Vegetables were very fresh and tasteful, as also the chestnut soup. Portion was more than adequate. Overall satisfied though!

We had a big works dinner here and as usual Zur Noll looked after us well. They did a small menu for us to choose from with 4 starters and about 8 main dishes. All where served quickly and efficiently and the feedback from the guests was all positive.

This place is just great. The food is authentic German for the most part, but everything is lovingly prepared. Service is nice as well, which you will appreciate, if you're used to Germany, is a complete rarity in this country. I had one of the specials: Steak with "Pfifferlinge" and Krapfen. Since I've been in Jena, this is my go-to... More

The Noll is my favourite place to host business and private guests in Jena. The menu is large, with local specialties and a more "rustical" touch. If you're lucky (and you are lucky quite often there) the Chief himself is eerving you the meal. And a special thanks goes to Kellnerin 7.

In Jena on business by myself. Having sampled a beer in the square, I was looking on tripadvisor for some good food. Zur Noll is only two minutes walk off the main square. An upmarket gastropub, typically German. Middle of the asparagus season, so all the specialities were asparagus based, which I love. Lovely tender spears of fat, white asparagus... More

The restaurant offers a lovely atmosphere for dining as a couple, with friends or when visiting as a family. The place is usually quite busy so there is a comfortable background of chatter from the other tables. The menu is quite traditional and the food is very professionally cooked, be warned though the portions are large! Prices are mid-range and... More

I have been at least 10 good restaurants in Jena and Zur Noll is one of the best I have been. The service is friendly and professional, the tomato soup was hot tasty, the lamb I choose was really fabulous and delicious. Italian Chianti was the best added the authentic atmosphere add to the complete warm environment.

You can get some regional specialities with good quality. I often visit here for mostly work related reasons. It maybe pricy for students but reasonable for non-students. I would not say this is my favourite restaurant but if you are in Jena for the first time, and you want regional food, this would not be a bad place.
