We had a very good time, the food is well thought through and clearly from the hand of a real chef, flavors and compositions far beyond the ordinary. I enjoyed the atmosphere. The waitress did a great job. The overall experience (including the wine!) was excellent.

We made a detour to revisit Gauss. The food is imaginative and consistently fresh and tasty. But the highlight is the wine - with a markup of only about 50% you can drink well at a reasonable price.

For such a nice meal it is relatively cheap (since being in Germany). The wine they offer is superb and service is extremely attentive and friendly without being intrusive. I had the vegetarian asparagus dish and the cheese plate was ok.

We come to Goettingen every year for reseach and never fail to eat our first meal and our last (and some in between) at GaussKeller. It does continental cuisine with a German touch, has a marvelous wine card and a very agreeable atmosphere. When the weather permits, sitting outside under the spreading trees is a real pleasure. We've had wonderful... More
