By accident I came to this place - I do know it for more than 40 years! - after passing an empty favourite restaurant, and decided to enter: First impression, almost all places occupied. Second impression, food and menu changed. Third impression, they do have the same beer still ( Since more than 40 years at least). The good thing... More

A good, tender steak with a bit of salad on the side. Though it was tasty, I found it a bit too little. Nice terras. (didn't see the inside)

The weather was good so we were able to sit outside just across the street from the restaurant. The food was very good and nicely presented... More

Following the recommendations on tripadvisor I had lunch here during a short business trip to Karlsruhe. Took one of the (few) daily specials, porcini lasagne, which turned out to be a treat! Their beer is also very good, and the service was impeccable. I'll be back there next time.

Had a brilliant al fresco meal outside in the courtyard, with chiming bells and water fountains gently babbling. Beautiful location, friendly and helpful staff and importantly excellent food and drink. The food is high quality and tasty, the drinks match this. I had schnitzel and my partner had lemon pork and croquettes - both came with beautifully dressed salads. I... More

The beer selection (Ketterer's own brewery) was excellent. The food was also very nice, and I had one of the best desserts I can remember for years.
