Russwurmhaus has incredible soups and delicious steaks. The restaurant is incredibly small, so reservations are a must.

typical and original bavarian food. One of the best and most traditional in town. Very near to the main square.

The restaurant is a bit off the beaten track, but just 100m from the main town square. It sits on a quite small square and has ample seating outside on the square that is closed off to most traffic and offers a couple of trees...More

The location is right next to the river and along side the Luft museum. Family place with great service and good food. Lovely beer garden in the warmer months and a warm place to escape the cold in the winter. Well worth a trip.

This is one of our two go-to places in Amberg for German food. Prices are typical for German fare (3E beer, 4-5E wine, 10-15E main meals). Service is very friendly, and the food is some of the best we've found in the area. My favorite...More
