My guide book got it right - this restaurant was exactly as described - stripped wood tables and beamed ceilings serving really good local food. They forgot to mention the incredibly friendly welcome and the staff's excellent English! I recommend the Pork in cream sauce with wunderbar mange tout (but, personally I would give the noodles a miss - ask... More

A fun choice: long tables that are shared, with tasty German food that is very affordable. The wine list is a bit limited, but there were beers aplenty.

We visited Freiburg five years ago and ended up dining here both nights of our stay because we loved the food and the atmosphere so much. It was great to see that this restaurant is still as good as we remembered it. The portions have remained generous and the food was tasty. The tender steaks we ordered came with a... More

Stumbled on this place while driving around at night looking for somewhere to eat. the place was full however the host found my partner and I a spot on a big table with another couple. The service was second to none and his enthusiasm infectious. The host spoke a number of languages and helped with the menu and was very... More

Had a late dinner here with my partner. The style of the place is just beautiful. Very intimate, candles and a gorgeous flower installation above the tables. Very unique and special. The food was ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS!! I doubt anyone could question the quality nor the quantity of the food. It was also fairly priced in our opinion. We were dissapointed... More

Strolling through Freiburg we came across this Gasthaus. It was a warm day but they had the front windows completely open so that part was covered. The staff is very nice and attentive. Which we didn't find in several other restaurants! The food was good, decent German food. We had the usual suspects and enjoyed it very much. Large portions... More

We had a great meal in this restaurant. The food was authentic and the portions very substantial. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and the service was notably different to that received in the square by the Munster! Thank you so much for a wonderful evening!

Words of warning: 1. BOOK IN ADVANCE - IF ONLY ONE OR TWO DAYS IN ADVANCE - OR PREPARE YOURSELF FOR DISAPPOINTMENT. 2. THEY ONLY ACCEPT CASH OR A GERMAN DEBIT/CREDIT CARD Before I get onto the food and restaurant itself, I have to say they run an extremely odd table policy. Tables may be reserved but three or four...
