We had a very good meal in this restaurant whilst staying in the hotel, the only disappointment was that we were the only people in the dining room, whilst the other hotel dining room was full or people and more jolly. But that was a fault of the time of year.. There was a well chosen flight of wines and... More

We had the four course meal with wine pairing. As promised there were lots of surprises so it seemed more like 7 courses. The food was all excellent and the service from the junior staff was quite good. The headwaiter seemed a bit distracted and focused on one table to the exclusion of all others. Perhaps they were judges of... More

It you are visiting Heidelberg this restaurant is worth a visit. The restaurant is very historic, the food exceptional and the service second to none. Make sure that you make a reservation in advance.4

Dear lucyAustralia, Also here, a very big thank you for your high rating. By the way and as an alternative reservation tip to the other TA readers, you always can reserve over bookatable 24/7, since we are not really working when you are up and running "down under". Just look for Le Gourmet and make the reservaton online. I remain... More

Outstanding service, excellent food and pleasant surroundings in this fine dining restaurant. Menu is a little restricted in that one chooses 3, 4 or 5 dishes from a fixed menu. some of these choices are a little mismatched but this is a minor complaint to the quality of what is delivered.

Dear Willysailor, Thank you very much for your visit to us and your positive lines. I hope you did noticed, that we offer actually an eight course menu and not just only 5 courses. With the additional amuse gueules and the pre dessert at the end - plus the sweet ending - one has actually a wide choice. I remain... More

I've eaten in quite a few Michilin star restaurants, and this is my favorite. The service and staff are spectacular, sharing history of the building, remembering your preference from previous visits, and taking care of you with very high standards, without hovering or eyeing you from the back of the room. Wine pairings are always excellent. Cheese trolley is to... More

Appetizers and other surprises are delicious. The main course, i.e., sea bass, is a bit plain. Dessert is boring at best. Even though their selection of cheese is good. Wine pairing is worth it.

The welcome and service were exceptional. We chose 4 courses and tasted about 10, with amuse bouches, pre dessert and après desserts. The wines were well paired with our courses and served in generous proportions. Altogether a fine and memorable dining experience.
