We entered Zum Albrecht Durer Haus and evening just for a drink, as from the outside it looked very welcoming. It's also situated in what is probably the nicest part of the Altstadt, so that helped.
The first good thing was that our dog (Belgian shepherd) was immediately accepted and welcomed with a bowl of fresh water by the very kind owner. The place is very welcoming, intimate and cosy also inside.
After the first round of drinks (they have some good beer, even though not really local but coming from München; the wine is however Franconian, and is very interesting) we decided we were hungry so asked for some support since one of us is on a gluten free diet. The owner was very professional and helpful in this regard, marking the safe dishes with an asterisk on our menu and explaining them in order to be sure they did not contain gluten and were not contaminated. We had a good surprise in this respect, as almost all the dishes were gluten free (some of them required some small modification such as a change of the side order).
The menu is Franconian (home-made), so bratwurst, meat etc. I also sampled the ravioli as an appetizer: very different from Italian ravioli (more like the Asian variation) but very good nevertheless. The main course (both the bratwurst and the meat) was excellent! Surprisingly, they had a tiramisu as a dessert: the owner warned me (as I am Italian) it wasn't what I was probably expecting, but I wanted to try it anyway: again, it was very different (so it probably should have a different name), but it was good!
Pricing was very reasonable. I would absolutely recommend this place to eat, as it's a great dining experience in the Atlstadt. The kindness of the staff also helps a lot, you feel very welcome.
As a last thing... if you happen to use the restrooms, take a look at the window while climbing the stairs to the second floor: the view of the fortress - just a stone throw away - is fantastic, especially at night.
