Very good German food. Great Snitzels, accompanied by nice mescaline salad. Excellent spot but unfortunately it has closed due to the chef's health!

This was an amazing place to eat. Lothar was truly a master chef and I had eaten here lots of times with family and friends but it is no longer open.

Sad to say Lothar's is no more. There's a sign in the window that says that the owner and his lovely wife have retired to tend their garden and manage their bee hives. They are greatly missed.

The quality of the food, the interest of the chef and his staff (family). One of the "fine dining" experiences Shelburne has on offer. Just a pity that Lothar is unable to provide limproved opening hours

Lothar is a very good chef and we've enjoyed every meal we've had here. The service is good and both he and his wife are very friendly. The ambiance is lacking,however, and more colour in the restaurant would add to the atmosphere.
