We went for a lunch in this traditional restaurant in the main sqaure. There were many local specialities to try. I had roast pork with dumplings,red cabbage and sauerkraut. It was a huge portion and very tasty. One of us had a huge ham hock which was nice and the others had schnitzel. They also had things like hare and venison on the extensive menu. It was a little expensive but given the huge portions it was okay.

As vegetarians, there aren't many choice of food for us. We had vegetable rosti and omelette with potatoes. The vegetable rosti was quite tasty , but the omelet was really plain and served with big pieces of boiled potatoes. I wonder how one could eat boiled potatoes just like that without any cream or sauce. In the end, we cut the tasteless potatoes into small pieces and mixed them with the salad to make them edible.

We dined here on the marketplace last night. The setting of the restaurant was nice however the service was slow. We eventually ordered our food and after another long wait, it finally arrived. I had the pork steak which was tough and over seasoned with salt. My partner had the trout which was ok but too bony. After the meal we had to wait nearly 30 minutes for them to clear our plates. Our worst meal so far on our trip.

This restaurant has one of the best outdoor seating locations in Rothenburg -- right in the middle of the main square. You can see all sorts of people and activities while you dine. The food was the basic German menu items and was OK, but nothing spectacular. Service was courteous if a little brusk. Go for the views, not the food nor service.

This restaurant is right on the Marketplatz in the center of Rothenburg. We sat at an outside table for about 2 hours listening to live music in the square, eating food, people watching, and drinking the beer they serve. (Not sure what brand of local beer they were serving, but all the types were all very good and a cut above most of the other places.) As for the food, we were a group of 4 and everyone was very pleased with their meals. Our service over the course of those two hours was very good, both attentive and friendly. Finally, we thought the prices were pretty reasonable, particularly given the location.
