“Nice place for everything 'traditional'”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 February 2013

Being busy with preparations for our short trip to Nurnberg we wanted also to choose a special place because we were going to celebrate birthday there. As there were just two of us we wanted a cosy place with good local food and having read some review here at Tripadvisor we decided to go to Zur Baumwolle. We reserved a table right in the morning the same way we were going there - we did it just in case to be sure that we would definetely be sitted there because despite there were just two of us there was a Toy fair in the city and most places were full.
The restaurant has good location, is small and very nice - everything makes you feel like you're invited to a traditional house of locals: there're so many cute details in there! When we came all tables were either full or reserved. We shared our table with local people and it wasn't a problem for us: we were prepared to share it with someone + moreover it was ok that locals eat there as well. Service is very good and fast (though young lady didn't speak much english). We took traditional dishes (franconian style) and some beer, everything was perfect. Reasonable price for delicious home-made food. So-called birthday dinner for two came out to be a very nice one ))

“Best Meal in Germany So Far”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 December 2012

We were so lucky to get a table without a reservation in this place, it was fully booked and lots of people were being turned away. We were looking at the menu outside when a local German man was walking past and recommended it to us.

Our waitress was lovely, we didn't speak much German but managed to communicate what we wanted. We had the schnitzel - delicious! and the roast goose which was fabulous. Would definitely go again next time we visit.

The atmosphere is great and the place is very old and beautifully decorated inside - just the place to be on a cold winter's day.

“Excellent waitress service - Traditional German Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 October 2012

A very old, well preserved Restaurant, with traditional tables and seating facilities. You may be put off as it could appear to travellers that it is a solely German Restaurant with no other language facilities, but we found that once seated this was not the case. We arrived without a booking and were made very welcome by our waitress who spoke our language. Only traditional German food is served here which was excellent.

“fantastic restaurant! go there if you are in Nurnberg!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2012

I went in this resturant more ore less 30 time. I must when i was used to go in Nurnberg for work.
Small rooms, good beer, fantastic local food! Really a must if you are over the city! I suggest to book before if you are w/ others...the rooms are really small and the people coming really a lot!
