I dropped in at 12:30 for a quick lunch before departing for the airport. I was given a menu immediately, but my order was not taken for ten minutes. The soup (beetroot, 4,90 euro, no bread offered) then took 20 minutes to arrive and the main course a further 10 minutes. Forty minutes to get to that point may not... More

We went to this restaurant for diner. As positive point, they have the menu in english, it is easier to choise when you cannot speak German. We took some sausages to share as starter with a bier and a main dish. The price was correct and the dish was ok. As negative point, the restaurant is a big dining room... More

It was during the toy fair and this was one of the locations would take us. The onion soap was way too salty. You feel like you were drinking water with tons of salt. The duck that I had for my dinner was terrible. Meat was dry and not tender at all. I don´t understand why this restaurant had 4... More

The pork was quite dry, no crackling, and the sauce was average. The potato dumpling was not nice. The beef kebab with vegetables on the other hand was very good - the vegetables were excellent and we found it quite difficult to find fresh vegetables (other than potato!) in Bavaria. We ate in the bar section, and just walked in.... More

We saw the sign advertising their food on our way to our favourite sausage joint and decided we would return for dinner. Had their signature pork shoulder with crackling as well as a beef sauerbraten, down with house red. The place was busy with diners although it was only 6pm. Service was friendly and the food delicious. It also offer... More

5 of us called in whilst visiting the Xmas market in Nuremberg. Good beer, and people looked like they were enjoying the food. The place was quite busy and our waitress looked disappointed we were only having a drink. We were offered menu's several times and in the end we took the hint and finished our drinks and left. Didn't... More

a Biergarten just next to the cathedral; rich menu of local dishes, all heavy on sausages and other Bavarian fare. Generous portions, but not particularly refined for gourmets! Must be washed down with the great beer! Good and friendly service, reasonable prices.

The place was packed on a Friday night (out of season) and we had to wait for a table. Staff were friendly and arranged for a table as soon as one became available. In the meantime we enjoyed a home brown beer which was very tasty and nearly knocked us off our chairs as we had not eaten for a... More

We sat near the bar, not in the big hall, which sounded quite loud, but in the more intimate area near the entrance. The place was full of locals, which s always a good sign. The food was delicious and the portions really huge. Good value for money and recommend.

Enjoyed the local speciality of Sauerbraten and a wheat beer to wash it down. Thoroughly recommended. Loved the mediaeval style clothes that the staff were wearing. Very friendly and helpful and happy to sort everything out in English if needed.
