I absolutely love the place. As a local I am lucky enough to be able to go there whenever I want! ;) The food is delicious, the service is perfect. The location? Hidden in the forest. Quiet and relaxing...perfect for a nice quiet and romantic evening!

During a family visit in the area, we came across this little restaurant, very much hidden away from the town centre, in the forest above Güntherstal. It is indeed a secret spot as you would never find it, if you didn't know about it! I went there with 8 people yesterday and I was so impressed with this place! The... More

When we went it was nice enough to sit outside. I have actually gone twice now and I love 3 hours away. My family and myself really enjoyed the food and service. The cook actually put something special together for my sister because she just couldn't find something on the menu that she was interested in. So they said just... More

Home made pasta, fresh salads, low prices and gentle people are some good reasons for have a dinner there!!! The place is... More

Just above Günterstal this is a nice place to have diner or lunch or whatever. We were there in the late afternoon. Service was friendly and fast. Food was really good and tasty. Prices for food and drinks were moderate, considering the quality I would even say low.

nice stroll through the woods and across the "Streuobstwiesen" (grass field with scattered fruit trees) lead to this popular location above Freiburg (unfortunately due to high trees without a scenic view). Popular with families with kids and mountain bikers, also with locals and students... good food in big portions (we had pancakes with mushrooms and cream sauce, big mixed salad... More

It started out with a really nice walk up a long road through the Black Forrest to get here (you can also drive up to the restaurant), We walked passed goats grazing and beautiful trees from all over the world. We sat down and ordered out customary Rattler, When the waiter came to take our food... More
