Popular traditional restaurant with good section of local beers and meat dominated menu. The house specialty, Pork Knuckle, will satisfy the biggest of appetites and of course dumplings are available at every course. Very friendly waiting staff and great atmosphere. Booking is recommended during busy periods, although we walked in off the street around 9pm and got a table for... More

Had nice beers as well as options for mixed drinks. They did a very nice "old fashioned" drink. Service was quick and friendly. The decor is awesome - you feel like you are in an ancient wine cellar.

I wasn't very hungry at lunchtime but all the same I popped into this restaurant as they were recommended on Trip Advisor. There was no one to meet me at the door and after I found a server was directed to go in the back downstairs. I found a sweat at the downstairs bar and eventually the same server came... More

This place is tucked into a crowded street in Heidelberg. When you walk in, it's a bit crowded, but you are greeted kindly. It looked like EVERYONE had a pork knuckle in front of them, so one person in our group got one. Totally delicious. The Käse spaetzle was the best I've had in Germany! The atmosphere was great and...

Good Center location in Altstadt. Busy, popular and a cute decor. Our waitress was friendly and worked hard to keep us happy. This place is open later than most places around it. I had the Nuremburger sausages and they were okay, good not great. The sauerkraut tasted a bit mushy! I give the quality of the food a mark only... More

I have ordered an apple strudel with Vanille ice. It was very small, not fresh and not of a good quality. Also the Glühwein wasn't very good. I did not try the dinner. I wouldn't recommend it.

Came here for lunch. I really recommend this place if you are in Hidelberg. Very nice venue, typical German food....the Schwein Haxe is a must!

The restaurant is centrally located in the town and is very spacious. The dining area is very cozy. The staff provide a very warm welcome. Food portions are generous and perfect for those with a healthy appetite. The menu focuses on German food. The tables are well presented and clean. We really enjoyed our lunch here and would recommend it.

Palmbrau is a wonderful restaurant in the heart of the old city of Heidelberg. We had a late lunch here one afternoon and enjoyed it so much that we went back for an afternoon snack the next day. The menu has English in the back and our waiter (from Hungary) speaks very good English as well. I have to eat... More

Following reviews from Trip Advisor we selected the restaurant for lunch 2 families with 4 children and we had a very good time. Although very busy when we arrived management found a table for all 8 of us. Food was tasty and very authentic German. The best asset of the restaurant was the interior design and atmosphere but service was... More
