The food was really good and tasted. The wine offer is interesting but expensive. The service and atmosphere was very good, but it is expensive.

There are two Michelin one-star restaurants in Heidelberg, and this one, which is a bib gourmand. They earned it. The service is superb - they anticipate everything, and stay out of the way. And the food is interesting, extremely well-prepared, and there is enough variety...More

We ate with several colleagues and all of us came out quite satisfied. The food is well prepared and served with modern appearance but still very tasty and local. I suggest the pumpkin soup and the duck. If you still have room, try the house...More
