Tourist trap! I love traditional German food. For me food doesnt always have to be fancy or served beautifully as long as it tastes nice. But this place serves greyish, mushy food with sauces that are so gloppy there ought to be gelatine or something in it! You can eat it if you have to, but I wouldnt recommend it!

as soon as we stepped into the restaurant, the waiters and waitresses are very friendly and took us to the table. Though they don't have English menu, the waiter introduced their cuisine pretty patiently. The atmosphere is very relax when we are enjoying our dinner. I strongly recommend their pork shank and ravioli, they tested very traditional and the flavor... More

Very solid and reasonable local/German cousine. Even great service and care to one time visitors, beyond expectations. I think family run and established service team, which is visible overall and in the details. Once they even delivered a freshly made plate as the dish was getting cold on the table as my colleague wasn't at the table. That's why i... More

This is an old restaurant right in the heart of Heidelberg. The food is really tasty (German traditional) and they have a good wine selection as well. The place is nice and cozy (rather quite). They have two very nice tables at the windows (worth reserving in advance).

On holiday in Germany we visited this restaurant on our second last night and I've got to admit that the Schnitzel with cheese sauce and sliced potatoes was the tastiest I've had to date. Good wine and beer selection and reasonable prices too!

Two persons: 1 schnitzel, 1 pumpkin soup, meat balls plus drinks it was around 40€. Not the cheapest you can get but worth it. Very good food and nice environment.

Visited for dessert with business colleagues. We all loved our desserts including the apple strudel and chocolate mousse. Highly recommend for German cuisine

We had a wonderful dining experience at the Hackteufel. Be sure to make reservations because they fill up fast and it's hard to get in but that's a testament to the restaurant. Unless you're an expert, ask the waiter for a recommendation for the perfect wine for your meal. He is an expert and will direct you to the perfect... More
