Restaurants in Heidelberg (recent)?

The last post on Heidelberg, Germany was over a year ago, so I am asking to see if there are some more recent experiences on Heidelberg restaurants that anyone can share.

My wife and I will be in Heidelberg later this month and have time for two dinners and one lunch. Our favorite type places are neither touristy nor formal and expensive, but rather informal and favorites of locals. I know Heidelberg itself is very touristy, so finding a good local restaurant away from the tourists might take some walking, but we're up for that.

Thanks for any advice!

  1. These are definitely not "tourist" type restaurants and have wonderful food:


    Goldener Anker

    River Cafe

    A bit more expensive than the previous 3...


    Weisserbock Restaurant


    None of these are on the main Haupstrasse (where all the touristy restaurants are). Depending on when you are going to be here I would highly suggest making reservations.

    1. re: H0n3yb33

      I lived in Heidelberg for a couple of years (up until May 2012), and one place for great German food is PalmBräu Gasse on the Hauptstrasse (main street). Even though it might be in a touristy area, the food is great and a good value for your buck!

    2. I'd like to know if anyone has any suggestions for the best places to eat in Heidelberg now. I will be in Heidelberg for 10 days and will be eating by myself. Thanks.
