We found this restaurant based on ratings from this site. We were pleasantly surprised.
Located in the old part of town, this place offers a great opportunity to experience some local cuisine and atmosphere. This seems to be a local joint, as many customers appeared to be regulars, sitting at the bar area, laughing and enjoying themselves. This really gave the restaurant a nice, warm feel.
I must warn you that the menu is not typical, and it is all in German, which I suppose is OK since Konstanz is in Germany. Still, we were a bit stuck on a few things, but thankfully, one of the waitresses spoke English and was able to help us out.
The menu basically consists of an offering of various Fammkuchen (tarte flambée, a sort of pizza), an assortment of salads, and a few other warm dishes. The salads are not your typical type, as they offer an assortment of dishes. We opted for a mixed dish, which had some potato salad, carrots, cabbage, and lettuce. It was very good, and a great way to get started. For our main entree, my wife and I selected a ham dish, sort of ham hock, I believe. It is normally served with potato salad, but I asked for roasted potatoes with mine, which was not a problem. The quality was very good. It was very reminiscent of a ham steak in the flavor, but much more tender. Very tasty. We drank some local wine, which was pretty good as well.
Overall, this was a very pleasant experience, very friendly and local. Our table was large, so other people sat with us. If that's a problem for you, then perhaps this is not the place for you. Another point to remember, they do not accept credit or debit cards, cash only, so come prepared. If you want for traditional German food, other than the typical sausages and schnitzels, and want to experience some local German atmosphere, then this is the place for you. The staff was very friendly and welcoming, despite the fact that the restaurant was packed, and the food was very good. Enjoy!
