“Food and atmosphere good, service a little rushed”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

Old restaurant, charming and full of character. Small rooms, with a small outside terrace. Seasonal menu very good, asparagus etc, concentrating on seasonal produce. Service was a little erratic, they got our starter order wrong but apologised and put it right straight away, and they questioned our choice of dishes several times - whether we had chosen something oddly matched or they just wanted to get it written down right not sure! Pleasant wine. Nice evening.

“The best Forelle”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

In the most pitoresque area of Ulm Zurich Forelle is not to be missed. In this traditional German Restaurant we had the best Forelle we ever had. Magnificent atmosphere and professional service.

“Wonderful dining experience”
Reviewed 13 March 2014

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Ulm. Every meal I had here was great and the daily specials are a bargain. Try to sit on the patio that overhangs the Blau when the weather is good.

“Authentic Ulm Experience - wunderbar cuisine”
Reviewed 21 January 2014

"When in Rome" ...as they say -- we arrived in Ulm with eager appetites and the courage to pursue the genuine Schwabian foods. Fortunately for us, our local friends were kind enough to guide us to Zur Forelle for a delightful afternoon meal.

The Schwaban Teller was well-received in our group, as the spatzle and sauces were perfect compliments to the dish. Aside from addressing the main course of our eating, it should be noted that this place is the REAL DEAL when it comes to the age of the building, and gasthaus!

The location couldn't be more beautiful, along the Blau. We loved the coziness of the old German decor -- the low ceilings, antique furniture, and hospitable service. They were most welcoming to our dog, who also decided that this is worth a 5-Star Rating on Trip Advisor.

Don't miss the cappuccino, served with a delicacy from a fresh bakery. We would have loved to stay into the evening, but the sights of Ulm beckoned us out of the historic Zur Forelle. Can't wait to visit again!!
