We had a superb meal with wine appropriate to the food. The service was impeccable, just the right amount of time between courses. The staff are knowledgeable and helpful. Please note the unusual table ornaments - all made from cutlery.

The castle of Heidelberg is worth a visit. You will discover a part of the history of the Rhine valley and the historical links between France and Germany. The garden is very nice, so are the views. If you have time take the "bergbahn"
