This is an old restaurant right in the heart of Heidelberg. The food is really tasty (German traditional) and they have a good wine selection as well. The place is nice and cozy (rather quite). They have two very nice tables at the windows (worth reserving in advance).

On holiday in Germany we visited this restaurant on our second last night and I've got to admit that the Schnitzel with cheese sauce and sliced potatoes was the tastiest I've had to date. Good wine and beer selection and reasonable prices too!

Two persons: 1 schnitzel, 1 pumpkin soup, meat balls plus drinks it was around 40€. Not the cheapest you can get but worth it. Very good food and nice environment.

We had a wonderful dining experience at the Hackteufel. Be sure to make reservations because they fill up fast and it's hard to get in but that's a testament to the restaurant.

We ordered one vegetarian flammkuchen and roast pork with gravy. My wife quite liked her flammkuchen (she isn't a big pizza pan) and my roast pork was nice too. PS: there is an ice-cream... More
