Visited one evening and enjoyed one of the best steaks I have ever had! Served on a 350 degree hot stone so you can cook each mouthwatering piece to your own taste. Washed down with a ham smoked beer which is incredible! You can actually smell the ham. It really works. Wife also tried the goulash which was equally delicious.... More

Very picturesque restaurant on the side of the medieval castle. The restaurant is very well named since it means "castle guardian". I had the goulash soup for a starter. This is German-style goulash, more of a stew than a soup, and spicy enough to make me want more. My wife and I split the Wiener schnitzel which came with an... More

Visited this delightful little traditional restaurant after reading some on the reviews posted on here. It more than lived up to expectations. The food was freshly prepared, very reasonable and delicious. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Will definitely go again when we next visit Nürnberg.

Excellent service and very good food. It wasn't very busy when we went, so we managed to get a table easily, although it did fill up quickly. Even so, service was quick

We ate here on valentines day and I had booked ahead although it wasn't actually full perhaps due to the location on the outskirts of the centre underneath the castle, a great location in itself I must add. The restaurant was very cosy, we shared a table with another couple but the table was large enough that it didn't feel... More

My wife and I visited this venue whilst staying in Nuremberg for the Christmas markets and reading the reviews in TA. I had made reservation a few months earlier as I guessed it would be quite busy during the market time. Easy to find place, nice friendly staff and good basic food menu with reasonable prices. Beer is excellent. Nice... More

We stopped here for a drink while exploring the castle. Lovely interior and nice drinks. We would have eaten here too but there are very minimal options for vegetarians, fewer than in most bavarian eateries that we've been to so far. Still, a nice place to visit.
