Sudpfanne is a very intimate restaurant that is known for its fine German cuisine that is prepared without pretense. There are nice soups and salads, and larger and smaller meat and noodle dishes. For vegetarians, a tasty salad and one of the ample baked potatoes, which come with one of four sauces, would be a very filling meal. Look also for the daily specials menu.
Zum Roten Ochsen is one of Heidelberg's traditional student pubs, occupying a house built in 1703, and run by the Spengel family for over 160 years. As befitting a historical establishment, the place is adorned with memorabilia, pictures, paintings, drinking horns, wood carvings, and so on; all from days gone by, which make for great conversation over dinner and drinks. The menu features basic German meals, with plenty of schnitzel, sausage and steak. The selection of beer is limited, but reliable, and there are a dozen or so wines available by the glass.
Zum Sepp'l, a pub and a restaurant is one of Heidelberg's historic student locations, and the interior is adorned with countless photographs and other memorabilia from days past. (As well as, to complete the college touch, all manner of 'liberated' road and building signs.) Come here for drinks, and sit at the ancient, deeply carved plank tables until your drinking arm gets sore, or enjoy a hearty German meal. Vegetarians, however, take note: Every dish on the menu used to have a face.
Here is a great budget dining option. Stroll into this little pizzeria, which focuses on take-out and delivery service, and order a pie to split among friends. While it is in the oven, you can look more closely at the historic houses surrounding it, including one in which Goethe stayed a couple of times. When the pizza is ready, eat it on the beautiful square, right under the castle walls, and marvel at how life can be so good. In addition to 40 kinds of pizza, there are 20 salads, 20 pastas, and a variety of side dishes and non-alcoholic drinks. Note that the English version of the menu mistranslates a German adjective used to describe the food, saying the pizzas are 'palatable'. Rest assured: they are much more than that.
Situated in a tiny alleyway just around the corner from the tourist office at Neckarmünzplatz, Kulturbrauerei Brauhaus, a traditional brewery occupies a beautiful old building with a dramatic yellow and red facade. The interior is equally attractive, with wooden floorboards and long, rustic tables. The specialty of the house is home-brewed beer, perfect for washing down the hearty meat dishes (although there is also a good choice of vegetarian fare). All in all, this is a friendly and unhurried place. The beer is also available for take-away.
It doesn't get much simpler than the Treffpunkt,a quiet simple, 'meeting place'. A little bit of space inside and a little bit more space outside (close to the river, with a great view of the high hills on the far side). It is a strictly no-frills kind of place, but one at which you can get authentic German dishes and local atmosphere for dirt-cheap prices. The chalkboard outside tells you what's available, try the sauerkraut with sausage and bread, or a ham and cheese sandwich. Neither beautiful nor fancy, but recommended nonetheless.
This pleasant bakery and bistro serves up a nice selection of soups and sandwiches. Try a freshly baked roll with chicken, salami, egg, chicken breast, sheep cheese, mozzarella, camembert, or salmon, or some combination thereof. They're tasty, filling and fast, although with coffee and a nice selection of drinks there is no reason to hurry. If you want more than a sandwich, have one of the rich soups and pick something from the daily menu. The interior of the restaurant is casually upscale, with black iron and white faux-marble tables well-matched to balloon-back cane chairs.
This attractive, brown-shuttered pub and restaurant is just past the pedestrian zone of Heidelberg, by the Marktplatz. Built in 1743, Gasthaus Weisses Rössel serves heavy dishes cooked and served with the kind of care you would expect from such an entrenched establishment. Aspects of the menu change often, but expect to find salads, pastas and meat dishes. Vegetarians options are, for instance, gnocchi in gorgonzola with fresh spinach, and seasonal vegetables with gratin of potato over-baked with cheese. Recommended for non-vegetarians is the fresh fillet of salmon in Riesling-saffron sauce, with leaf spinach and potato, or the lamb with rosemary red wine sauce, roasted potatoes and seasonal vegetables. The seating is comfortable padded benches.
Located just off the Marktplatz, this fast food restaurant specializes in Indian cuisine. There is no seating, but you can stand at one of the tables, you can take the food with you to a pleasant bench or picnic spot, or you can have it delivered. There is a good selection of vegetarian and meat dishes, which come with basmati rice, several salads and snacks, and beverages, including a few Indian drink options. Especially recommended are the chickpea curry and the Raji Rani salad, a tasty mix of tomato, cucumbers, onions, carrots and cheese.
This is a friendly place, with comfortable padded benches and a very relaxed atmosphere. The menu is thoroughly German, with serious portions of meat, wurst and gravy, accompanied, when the diner deigns, with 'Beilagen' the vegetable or potato side-show. There are a couple of vegetarian options, however, including, on occasion, stuffed crepes. The best choice might simply be the cheese plate, with thick sliced of stunning German bread accompanied by butter, gouda and emmental cheeses. Great outdoor seating on the Marktplatz, right by the Holy Ghost Church.
This relatively large restaurant, with its elegantly dressed waitstaff, can be trusted for authentic Italian. The atmosphere inside is pleasant, with pleasing table setting and an interesting ironwork decoration. The real place to sit, however, is outside, where more than a dozen tables afford fresh air and a chance to view the surroundings, be it the old bridge, the Holy Ghost Church, the castle, or just the food traffic on the street.
Simple meals and a well-stocked bar awaits you here. Choose from among hamburgers, cheeseburgers, curry bock- and bratwursts, schnitzel and salads. The real action, however, is around the television or the bar, where the refreshing drinks just seem to go down to easily. The best thing about this establishment is probably the great outdoor seating on the Marktplatz, under the umbrellas, within sight of the old castle and just around the corner from the Old Bridge.
