Freiburg has a great tradition for the Straussi experience and we were recommended the Lorenz by a local who claimed that it was one of the best. The recommendation was absolutely accurate.
The venue is wonderful. The outdoor eating is venued in a courtyard area which has its own aviary! The old barns have been converted into the indoor dining space. They are amazing as the walls are totally covered with mirrors.
The food is excellent. The menu is extensive, which does not follow the real Staussi philosophy but it does mean that you can keep returning and always try something new. Vegetarian options are many and varied. I had the asparagus in a spinach pancake with a cream sauce. Absolutely delicious, filling and still a light dish.
The staff are great and helpful.
The only down side to the staussi is that it can be difficult to get a table. They do not have a booking system. We went on a Sunday and arrived 5 minutes after opening time. By then the place (which is vast) was totally full. I suggest that either you come at opening time or about an hour an a half after as the first diners will be leaving.
I hope you enjoy the place as much as we did.
