We found this place based on a blog recommendation, and I'm so glad we did! It's in a neighborhood north of Heidelberg (about 20 minutes by tram and a short walk). It was definitely a place tourists would NOT stumble upon. We sat outside in the garden that had a canopy of grapevines. With sat with some locals who were very friendly. Our server, Niels, spoke English and was just wonderful! Very accommodating and patient. I order the Rahmgeschnetzeltes. It was a veal dish in a cream mushroom sauce, served with spatzle (egg noodles), carrots, and salad. Delicious and the price was good. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

We went for dinner after reading the trotter guide and all the good reviews on TripAdvisor. But the service was not nice at all, they looked like they didn't like there job. The food was very average. The salad was an uninspired pile of Lola Rosa and some cheap feta. It felt more like a tourist trap.

Nice authentic location with delicious food and fantastic service. It's always nice to eat there. We have been there with a buissnes partner and enjoyed our evening.

Beautiful place, wonderful service.
Ambience top notched. Prices highly reasonable for portions, standards of food.
Wine and beer excellent.
Had the rump steak with onions, pork belly (yummy delicious) and spatzle with pork. All dishes were delicious.
Highly recommend.

We quite literally stumbled into this restaurant after visiting the Heilingenberg (Holy Mountain). Unassuming exterior (we weren't sure if they were even open) but lively interior. Great food - excellent service - very reasonable prices. Seemed to be a local favourite (which I usually treat as a good sign).
