I traveled from US to Frankfurt and I visited Gengenbach this week with my colleague. We walked the beautiful cobblestone streets of this village and felt the friendly energy of the locals. We settled into Frei Steinkellerhaus for a pint and dinner and was so happy with my experience. The staff was warm and friendly. The food was delicious. and... More

The waitress couldn't speak any English but she had a nice smile and helpfully produced an English menu even though it was a bit tatty! The menu was not as full as more expensive establishments and tables and cutlery had seen better days but were clean. The food was traditional German fare and was hot, well cooked and very reasonably... More

We ended up here by default when hunger struck early and our initial choice was closed. It worked out perfectly! The Mr and I were able to enjoy two regional specialities. I had the Black Forest ham on bread and he had sausages. We added a side order of fried potatoes. All three were delicious. The service was efficient and... More

Excellent selection of local wine and beer, and some beautiful cake and strudel - we called in for a snack and a drink and thoroughly enjoyed it. The Gluhwein was very good!

We stumbled across this place almost by accident, but so glad we did. The service was great, the waitress recommended a fantastic wine (so great that the next day we drove to the actual vineyard where it was made and stocked up) The food was fantastic. The inside was very quirky, in a garden atmosphere. We would Definitely go back.

Our first night in this lovely town and this restaurant come beer Keller was a couple of buildings away. Seeing the reviews on here we thought we would try. The staff were friendly and as they didn't have an English menu they asked their English speaking waitress to come over . We only wanted a little help understanding the menu... More

My fiancé and I chose this place after passing by it a few times and we were SO glad that we did! Our meals were outstanding, the service was polite and attentive and the inside was beautiful. It's a garden atmosphere with a retractable roof- which made it feel as if we were outside. I highly recommend this place. Come... More
