We were so sick of german food by night 8 of our trip that we decided to really shake it up and go japanese based upon the Tripadvisor reviews. I'm glad we did. The food here was really good. The service can be a little slow because there was only one lady (the nicest person I've ever seen) serving the whole dining room. We showed up a little after 6pm when they opened and were able to get a table with no problems.

If you're tired of schnitzel and wurst, give this restaurant a try!

My husband and I just happened to stumble upon this hot-spot while walking through Rothenburg. We were more than satisfied with the food (fresh and tasty!) and dinner service (efficient with a smile!). Great selection of specialty rolls and intimate/fun atmosphere. Will be recommending Louvre Sushi to anyone who visits Rothenburg in the future!

It seems a little strange to have such authentic Japanese food in the heart of a medieval Germany town, but that's what this is. The sushi was terrific and my wife swears the miso is the best she's ever had (and we've had a bunch). The food is good, the service fast and friendly, and the atmosphere is cozy. And by cozy I mean small. Just be sure you make a reservation for dinner; we thought we could just walk in on a cold February night and get a table--not so much. We came back for lunch the next day and were not disappointed.

We celebrated New Years Eve in Rothenburg ob der Tauber and chose the Louvre. Glad we did.
The service was attentive, the sushi fresh and delicious, the atmosphere low key and relaxing. We will definitely return if/when we return to Rothenburg.

We are on week two of a three week Germany adventure and our tummies can't take much more heavy food. Sushi was a relief! The price for the rolls was cheap in my view - a real bargain. The service was so wonderful. A good balance of being attentive which Canadians are used to at restaurants, and the European style of "You're on your own." The sushi however was mediocre. It's still worth a visit to break off the tummy ache German food. It's not on the main drag but just behind it. Check it out.
