Classic german decor, ambience, etc. Food was AWESOME!!! We usually eat at the Gasthaus in the Marktplatz. This was better, this time around. Food was hot, tasty, prompt, and served with a smile. If you don't eat here, you might be making a mistake. We've eaten at plenty of places here...this has to be in the top two.

My family, including two kids ages 8 and 11, ate here and very much enjoyed the food. It was traditional local fare and it was excellent. The portions were perfect sized and the prices were quite reasonable. The wine was good as well. The waitstaff were attentive without being intrusive. We really enjoyed our meal and would certainly eat there... More

This restaurant serves traditional German food, well-prepared and delicious. The real treat though was our server, a young local man who was just charming. Rothenburg caters to the tourist, obviously. The Roter Hahn doesn't feel touristy—to its credit.

We travelled through this amazing little city and we found this restaurant by chance after being recommended to a different restaurant that was full. It was so good! We, my family and I, all got different dishes and all liked what we got! The service was great and they even had a baby high chair and kids menu which made... More

After leaving one restaurant we walked into this hotel restaurant for dinner. We were a little worried because there was only one other table having a business meeting in the whole place. However, everything was great and our service very attentive. My husband had the Nuremberg sausages, one teen had the three sausages, the other had the pork medallions with... More

We did not stay in the hotel but we chose the restaurant in the Rotor Hahn for lunch during one day while in Rothenburg. It has a very German décor. Our waitress spoke very little English but we had no problems pointing to what we wanted as the menu was written in German & English. We had their sausage, potato... More

Classic interior. Not pretentious yet classic and very comfortable with a great ambiance. We found the service to be on the spot. The prices are very reasonable and the portions large. Our food was delicious. The menu is basically local German ( Franken) specialties.

We chose this place amongst all the dozens of other restaurants in the town due to 2 factors - good price and it was full of locals! The meals are classic Bavarian and very homely cooked grub. The wife had roast pork and I had braised beef, both with red cabbage and potato dumplings - scrummy! The meet gravy is... More
