It was a Wednesday when we walked into Bacharach excited that we had finally made it to the area. Excitement soon led to dismay when we found out that everything seemed to be closed..because it was Wednesday!! But we had found rusticana...what a lovely surprise....More

The house wine was very nice, and the proprietress very friendly and engaging. The food wasn't much to write home about, though.

The restaurant is a nice place, 100% german, Also the owners are very kind. And the meals are very tasty, the apple pie, the deer, all of it housemade. If you are looking for an original german restaurant in Renania-Palatinado, that´s your place.
