December 17, 2017 Jacquiline Delozier

Železná Ruda (literally "iron ore", Czech pronunciation: [ˈʒɛlɛznaː ˈruda], German: Markt Eisenstein) is a town in the Pilsen Region of the Czech Republic. It is located in the Šumava Mountains, close to the border with Bavaria and the German town Bayerisch Eisenstein. It is one of the important sports and tourism centres of the Šumava Mountains. The German name of the town comes from The Middle Ages, when it was a market town. Its German population was expelled after 1945.

Zum Rechen

Reviewed By Andre1312 - Berlin, Germany

We were fully prepared to bash these guys because some of the reviews look suspicious.
But... it's actually true!
The Rechen has very honest, very tasty food in good portions and at a good price. We had Jägerschnitzel and Forelle Müllerin (traditional German Gasthof food), followed by a Kaiserschmarrn (indeed delicious). All in a relaxed environment and served with a smile. They also have a schnapps distilled locally (which we took home).
It was such a nice experience that we went back two days later and had the exact same dinner again :)
If you go early (around 7ish), make a reservation, the place was full on both nights we were there.

Gasthaus Schwellhaeus'l

Reviewed By Diane J - Upminster, United Kingdom

Good traditional food , lots of meat, salads but they do not have any English translations of their menu which made ordering for those of us who are fussy quite difficult. There is no reason to expect English menus in Germany but it does encourage English travellers to stop there
Just outside is a beautiful lake and children's play area and best of all it is an ideal stop on local walks and cycle paths.
Well worthy visit.

Cafe Charlotte

Reviewed By WildAutumnHaner - Prague, Czech Republic

Every time when I am going through Zelezna Ruda, I have to stop in there and get a coffee and cake. Cafe Charlotte is tiny, non-smoking, cake shop, with beautiful and cosy environment - full of old stuff, wooden chest of drawers, functional model of locomotive and huge stylish oven. Next to the cafe is huge parking spot. I always love the atmosphere.

Penzion & Restaurant U Zlomene Lyze

Reviewed By Jiri B - Prague, Czech Republic

We came to this restaurant with high expectations and thus were a bit disappointed, but if I compare this restaurant to the other places in Zelezna Ruda, I have to say that it is the best one we visited. It is completely non-smoking and has a nice cozy feeling with interesting interior decorations. The prices were a bit high as it was everywhere in Zelezna Ruda, but still reasonable. The food I had was ok, but my girlfriend was not that pleased. The waitress was quick and nice. So my recommendation would be to visit this restaurant after visiting few others to enjoy it more.

We had lunch here twice on our recent visit to Bodenmais. The pizzas were very good. I also tried a pasta dish which was good. Very generous portions. The staff were very friendly and remembered us.

Eisensteiner Hof

Reviewed By Bohdan K - Prague, Czech Republic

It is a very average restaurant. Good soup, meat average taste and preparation. Side-dishes are a problem, especially doubtful baked potatoes and green beans disgusting. Not everything can be cooked in a frying pan with strange fat.
Staff at the lower level of capacity
The second place in Bayerisch Eisenstein? What for heavens are the other restaurants?!

Hotel Ostry - Restaurace

Reviewed By Anya636

We visited only restaurant of Hotel Ostry because we were looking for a place where to dine for more days of our stay in Zelezna Ruda. When we came nobody greet us, than we wait about 10 minutes till sbd came to ask what we will drink and eat. I asked for a vine and beef tenderloin without cranberries and whipped cream. My boyfriend decided after 5 minutes, and also ordered beef tenderloin because they were out of another dish he would choose rather than this. Vine seemed to me kind of watered.. Then waitress brought 2 beef tenderloin. Mine was with some remains of cream and the waitress apologised that the chef forgot not to put any cream and cramberries so she tried to get rid of cream with spoon. Disgusting. The plate for my boyfriend was totaly without cream and crenberries, but nobody apologised for that. These ingredients were in the menu and he did not say he does not want it. I will never visit this restaurant again.

A warm welcome to the Eisensteiner Hütte! Visit our cosy stop-off to experience the best service on the Großer Arber! Our rustic atmosphere and modern menu await. You can also take in the fantastic view of the Eisensteiner Valley and the idyllic spa town of Bayerisch Eisenstein.

Visited in March towards the end of the skiing season. This restaurant is situated on the Grosse Arber in the Nature Park of the Bayerischer Wald. Recently renovated, the restaurant is open all year round. Accessible by ski lift. From a party of four, three had the salad plate, and nobody was disappointed. The Dampfnudel is a specialty.

Bultas

Reviewed By Monica B - Prague, Czech Republic

Nice place! The food was basic, but very good, the service very pleasant. The atmosphere was very quiet and authentic, nothing fancy, but nice place to eat and enjoy some time with the family. Warning!! Big portions! If you are not a big eater, don`t order too much :) I shared a dish with my daughter, and we both couln`t finnish it. Unexpected good service, the lady helping us was extremely nice and profesional.
