We have been here before and we always love the food, fresh, authentic and very tasty. I believe it is a family owned restaurant, they provide friendly service, serving great quality food reflected in their prices. Their salads are so fresh, all the foods we have had have always been exceptional, schnitzel, fried potatoes, spätzle and vegetables. They have a... More

Very popular, could not get in without a reservation. The restaurant was packed with locals, and had a great ambiance. The food was good German fare, fortunatly they have an English menu.

I'm currently injured, not able to walk and in a wheelchair so my Fiance and her cousin came here to order us some meals, which would have totaled over 80€ but unfortunately we were not able to order because they do not do food to take with you. I have a long history of fine dining and I do understand... More

Great local food in a combined German and French kitchen. Both meat as well as the salad was tasteful. Quite large main dishes. Can recomend the bacon/goat cheese starter. The interior design of the restaurant feels very german in a family friendly way, quite far from stylish/modern but cosy and nice. Staff is helpful and provided good service. A perfect... More

Went there by myself based on Trip Adviser reviews. Hoppe's was all I expected and a lot more. Started with Cremat de Alsace--a very nice bubbly (5E). The goat cheese wrapped in bacon over tomato bits with a side of VERY fresh greens was both tasty and beautifully presented (8.90E). Followed by wiener schnitzel with vegetables (instead of potatoes) was... More

I was in Pforzheim a little over a week and could not leave without eating at this restaurant again. I was with a party of four both times and everyone agreed that their dish was delicious. We were also very interested in white asparagus since it was in season; both times we were able to get a dish to split... More
