Yes the Engel has "atmosphere" but it just didn't do anything for me. I think people pride it on being the best restaurant in a small village on reputation only, but I just didn't understand the hype. The food was ok, the wine was good.... But it seems to be expensive for the sake of being expensive. Do yourself a... More

Three of us had a beautiful meal here. We started with a lovely fresh salad, pumpkin and apple soup and beef consommé. All very good. Following this we had pork medallions, slow cooked beef and fresh local fish. Again all beautifully cooked and very tasty. There is attention to detail here from the linen tablecloths and napkins to the excellent... More

We enjoyed a very nice evening in the Engel Restaurant, sitting on the back of the house on the veranda. The food was nicely presented and very tasty and on offer were different dishes to the Flammkuchen and the rumpsteak all other restaurants in Sasbachwalden seem to offer. We had the french menue and a soup and a pork dish.... More

This is a great restaurant with a good atmosphere and interior. The food is mostly touched by local and seasonal influences but presented in a modern eye catching style. All food is fresh and very tasty. Local wines are offered to match the food. Prices for wines a excellent. At certain times they have food specials like asparagus weeks with... More

The Engel is one of our favourite local restaurants. We are coming ever since we moved to the area 10 years ago. The chef Christian Mamber studies with Michelin-Star cooks and the owner Herbert Decker manages the restaurant with impeccable precision. Mamber seems to do fish dishes particularly well. The composition of the friendly and competent restaurant crew is very... More

Excellent food in the heartland of the BlackForest vinyards, with a variety of French and German dishes available, and a great wine list. The food is more quality than quantity, it is not served in traditional beer.weingarten style, but nevertheless scrumptious ! Enjoy a stroll in Sasbachwalden, a picture-perfect village after a hearty meal, topped off with huge choice of... More

Had a great meal here. Started with the garlic escargots- too salty. Then the beefs cheeks- interesting with a wonderful sauce but too salty! Had the most amazing potato crochetes. Wine was average from the region. The desert was dissapointing- the black Forrest rollard!

A group of 11 of us ate here last night. It's very expensive so you'd expect a reasonable meal for that price. I chose a salad which was supposed to include all kinds of goodies and costed 8.5 euros. Much to my surprise a rather sad looking plateful of green leaves appeared, drowned in a vinagerette. As I was a... More
