Discover Restaurants offering the best German food in Erlangen, Bavaria, Germany. About 10 miles north of Nuremberg, Erlangen is the home of the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg (Friedrich-Alexander-University), founded in 1742. Just over 100,000 people live here, about a third of whom are involved with the university; about another third work for the Siemens corporation.

Mein lieber Schwan

Reviewed By cramorra

Went there with family a friends- not sure if it as there when I was at med school in ErlangenThe menu reads well and there were four to five dishes I would have liked to eat which is rare. Do not expect any fancy fine dining flashes and foams and jellies but solid German fare (was once described gutbuergerlich before this became a swearword) well executed and nicely presentedI choose a wild garlic soup 8/10; some asparagus with hollandaise an an schnitzel 9/10 sauces perfect (beurre blanc') ; my daughter had scallops with black rissotto 8/10 and pork fillet (said it was iberico not sure if iberico pork or iberico ham covering it 7/10) desserts where nice and I enjoyed a silvaner from a small wine makerWhat wasn t too like? It is popular (book if you go which I recommend you do) and in line with other places in Germany they save on service so it was overstretched too long wait for wine and bill went awol in-between (I don't blame them they were no enough and neither professional or well trained they did what they could)

Altmann's Stube

Reviewed By maimonChicago

Although this restaurant is not about to get a Michelin star, it is an excellent choice for a good, relaxed, mid-priced restaurant offering attractively presented, local food. In the warm weather, you can dine in a lovely garden. Service is excellent including wine recommendations. In short, it delivers what it promises and does not try to overreach itself. I would be happy to return.

We ordered a Cheese Burger, a Glux Burger and a Tijuana Burger in vegetarian version. The Burger presentation was basic in nature but the taste was really awesome.We had also ordered a Tropical Sunrise and Ipanema. The drink taste was ordinary and this is what prompted us to rate it at 4.Recommended for the Burger!!

Nothing fancy about this place, but a lot of locals seem to like it. The pork shoulder was tasty and plentiful, and the cabbage in cream sauce served as a side was unexpectedly good! Note that they do not take credit or debit cards and they are closed on Mondays.

Restaurant Schlotfeger

Reviewed By cancer1998

Located right next to railway station as well as town center Cozy and comfy ambience, place is clean which its self service salad bar is neat and tidyMain courses were delicious e.g sirloin steak & surf and turf, but some side dishes were looked like semi-processed products such as duchess potatoes & roastet potatoes. Few dishes prices were not matched with their prices such as a start called camabert... bit small and unexpected expensive Staff is friendly and helpful. Though lack of staff, the dishes are still cooked reasonably quick.

Steinbach is a great brewery, with two kinds of beer seasonally available. It is delicious, and the hall is a fun place. Of all the beer in Erlangen, this is definitely my husband's favorite.
