Russwurmhaus has incredible soups and delicious steaks. The restaurant is incredibly small, so reservations are a must.

The restaurant is a bit off the beaten track, but just 100m from the main town square. It sits on a quite small square and has ample seating outside on the square that is closed off to most traffic and offers a couple of trees for shade. Food is slightly more expensive than in other restaurants around, but its quality,... More

I find myself returning to this Bavarian restaurant in the months when one can dine outside and enjoy the proximity to the city's Luft museum! The food is prepared to order with selections to satisfy one's appetite for fresh fish or meat! When our group of 10 or so wants a location to celebrate a special event or Birthday, we... More

The house itself is a beautiful example of old Amberg. The meals are well prepared and delicious. They pride themselves on their service and seasonal specialities. Whether you dine inside in a cozy corner or outside in the lively square you will enjoy this exceptional restaurant.

The location is right next to the river and along side the Luft museum. Family place with great service and good food. Lovely beer garden in the warmer months and a warm place to escape the cold in the winter. Well worth a trip.

They're known for their steaks. Lots of options on their menu. It was ok for me. I have dined here a couple of times. Their beer is good, and they have a pretty quirky garden to dine or enjoy a beverage in.

Although there is not an English menu, the owner was courteous enough to get an idea of our likings and I had the greatest dinner of my life. I am almost sure anything you get here will be amazing. Very small and cozy, the steaks are cooked in a brick oven behind the bar, unbelievable food and attentive staff. I... More

This is one of our two go-to places in Amberg for German food. Prices are typical for German fare (3E beer, 4-5E wine, 10-15E main meals). Service is very friendly, and the food is some of the best we've found in the area. My favorite dish is the Russwurmpfandl, with pork medallions, spaetzle and cheese; my husband's favorite is the...
