We had a very enjoyable dinner at Zum Spreisel with traditional German food and large portions. The restaurant is cozy and is not overly large which was quite enjoyable. Both service and food were very good - so would definitely recommend for an authentic German experience without the hustle and noise of the typical beer hall.

A large group from work met here for dinner and drinks...and nobody was disappointed! We had great service (from Maria herself I believe), including for the late-comers of the group...they were greeted and served quickly to get them caught up with the rest of the team. The beer was very good, as was all of the food, according to comments... More

We have been going to this restaurant since 1992. Maria is a most wonderful host and the food is some of the best in Heidelberg. The atmosphere is charming. We are visiting again from New Mexico, and just enjoy being there so much. In the summer, the outside patio overlooks the Neckar and the Alte Brücke.

Pumpkin soup was amazing- I assume that is seasonal, but it was worth the trip! Food was wonderful, Maria is a real pro, atmosphere was delightful. Highly recommend.

Thank you TA reviewers for directing us to this restaurant. Maria was amazing and the menu was delightfully varied after the somewhat limited and repetitive standard offerings in the other Heidelberg restaurants we visited (6 in all). Going the extra mile, Maria gave us a wine tasting of two Pinot Noir wines so we could choose the perfect wine for... More

I would often visit here while studying in Heidelberg in 2012. The owner Maria was always kind to me. And the dishes were delicious!!!! I'll visit here again.

I went in on the Friday to book for Saturday night which happened to be my OH's birthday. I immediately recognized Maria from the photos on TA and she was so touched and we had a chat and she managed to get me a table for the next night, as hoped. She warmly welcomed us on the Saturday night and... More

The best mushroom risotto my husband has ever eaten. This is more expensive than most restaurants but easily the best meal we have eaten in Germany

Travelling a lot is part of my job, so I always try to find the best places to eat. I was lucky to find out that there is a lady with extreme good cooking skills who runs this restaurant. It feels like everything is home-made. Great taste, excellent customer service and a friendly environment combined with a very attractive location.... More
