Altes Weinkellerchen

I think it is! Great experience here and one of the best meals I had in Germany! (That's splitting hairs though because I had great food for the most part during a 3-week trip)It was probably the best food presentation of any restaurant I went to and similar to how restaurants in Japan take care to pay attention to small details. I love basement restaurants in the "old town" areas of European cities because they always have historic character and this place fits the bill. An ancient basement with great atmosphere. In summer, it was cool and I didn't have to dodge bees, fleas, flies & cigarette smoke so these were all bonuses on top of the delicious, healthy food & atmosphere. Not sure why everyone else prefers to sit outside under those conditions!? Food gets cold quickly too. Sit outside for drinks but for a nice meal, no thanks. The staff recommended a delicious dinner as the menu was in German and I could understand mostly what was being served. The seafood was very fresh tasting and I really enjoyed all of it. Definitely eat here for your 1 nice meal out when in Gelnhausen. The other places can't really compare as they seemed more casual.

I ordered the Schweinnemedallion mit Covadore when visiting Gelnhausen. This food was so good and reminded me of my grandma's (Oma's) home cooking. It came with a side of spaetzel that was perfect. Service was friendly and atmosphere outside was amazing!

I met Carl the original owner when I was stationed in Gelnhausen back in 1986 with the US Army, unfortunately he was not around for my visit. I used to sit and listen to the stories by the older men in the bar. This hotel bar/restaurant has been around for the longest time and is a meeting place for those who lived "in the day".Situated in the heart of the Gelnhausen Old City, a great launching place to discover the Barbarossa City. One of Europe oldest streets is around the corner as well as the church that towers over the city, built in the 13 century, truly amazing. Take some time and check out the cemeteries, the towers, walled parts of the city still standing and the nooks and crannies of the old city...look at the doors on the houses above the city center and notice how they are only about 5 feet high, gives an idea of how old they are...pure history.If Carl is still around, he can tell you of the hey day and the US Army days, if not some of the guests will have something to say.A great little gem!

I've lived in Germany long enough to not expect quick service at a restaurant, but come on, why should anyone wait an hour & a half to get their order? I have NEVER had three rounds of drinks before getting served our food before. NEVER!!! Worse, the waitress was one of the rudest waitresses I've ever seen in Germany. Seriously, you need to consider another line of work where you don't come in contact with real people.Thirdly, the food was alright, but hardly worth the wait.Do yourself a favor and go to Zum Bogan in Rothenbergen - Grundau instead!!!
