Had lunch in Goldener Karpfen after a long walk inthe Xmas market. Nice environment, romantic fashioned. Really excellent food (fish as well as meat), yet a little bit expensive for the average price of this small city. Nice and sympathetic waiters.

It is a good place to eat, in the heart of the city center, as part of a hotel. The environment is very warm, service is professional and fast. I had a very tasty lamb carre' and a surprising espresso. Overall a nice dinner

great food, a lot of local specialties and local wines, but also international. The restaurant has a few separate rooms which is convenient for e.g. customer events.

Me and my husband had dinner yesterday at the Goldener Karpfen in Fulda. We wanted to go there spontaneously because of our anniversary and called at 18:00 H to ask if they would have a free table for two at eight o´clock; luckily they had a free table for us (despite the short notice) and asked if we were celebrating...

Very nice restaurant in the middle of Fulda to have dinner with friends or business partners. The food is great and the wine also. Service is excellent and the wine is served with respect. Excellent place to be.

Our friend with whom we were staying took us to lunch here. We were seated (by prior booking) in the Kaiser Wilhelm Room. What a treat. The place oozes class. The food was stunning. The service amazing. Wine choice fabulous. Cannot say enough about this restaurant. Pricey, but worth the experience.

Came with a large group. Had a special menu for our group. Food was excellent. Appetizer - We had tomato soup, which most people usually do not like, but loved this version. Had chicken with noodles and vegetables as main course and great dessert dish. Nice outdoor seating, great staff. Inside is very cute. They had vegetarian options.

The food was very good and also the service was excellent. Might be expensive depending the food. The only negative point was high price of water: 0,75 l water bottle was 7,5 €!

We went here for lunch and it is pleasant and clean. The food was ordinary and don't even think of coming here if you are a vegetarian! Even the "butter" is actually lard. ugh. The service people were nice but considering their fancy aspirations one would think they would refill the water glass without being asked.
