I have eaten steak in every corner of the world over the years. This restaurant has excelled in quality of meat, cooked perfection of a wood fire.

I visited Rauchfang alone while travelling on business and had a good meal. It's a nice cosy place with good and attentive staff. I had a Ribeye steak which was tasty but a bit chewy and the sides of Fries and mixed vegetables were tasty but huge in size. I had a glass of Malbec which was excellent.

I was here for a business dinner and it was a worthy experience. The service is quick and friendly and the food was wonderful. I recommend the French onion soup as entry and the rib eye Iowa as main dish. The price is a little bit higher than the average for the region, but the quality compensates it.

Very good service but the meet was not as aspected from the previous reviews. I had a steak from the special menu but it was a bit to tuff. Not as aspected. I should have chosen a direct meet order.

This is a special treat every time we stay in Erlangen as it isn't cheap! But the steak is the best I have ever had, no chewing required. The sides are great and the setting is perfect to complete the experience.
