I had lunch here before leaving Nuremberg. I think I striked it lucky as the food was delicious and a couple of beers, that were in good form, went down a treat. Staff were attentive. Nice decor and made for a relaxing setting after the previous days full-on schedule. Surprisingly it wasn’t too hectic for a Saturday afternoon.

I stood in the center of the restaurant for ten minutes hoping to be seated at one of several open tables. Two waiters made eye contact several tomes but refused to help. Andechs beers are excellent, but the service could hardly be worse. It was saturday night, so some tables were reserved and I could not find an open seat.
Probably easier to look for the Hotel Deutscher Kaiser, might save you a miss on your first pass. Came twice and stayed for many hours the second time, sitting both inside in the traditional wooden hall and outside on the breezy terrace (which provided decent people-watching opportunities on the moderately busy K-str.). Food fresh and tasty, service was cheerful. Love the idea of the take-away aperitif glass which features two of their best - the Doppelbock and the lighter Weizen.
Andechs seem to opening up bars in a few major German cities, this one is inside the deutscher-kaiser-hotel.
We sat outside during the day and ate some lovely food, I had the days special which was a
Chicken Cordon Bleu, my wife had some fish, both washed down with well presented and tasty beers.
In the evening we entered the dark brown, wooded interior, scrubbed tables, wooden floor, chandaliers and very impressive all round. It gets more ’churchy’ as you go futher in, there is also a small balcony inside. A modern tubular ventilation system sits uncomfortably on the ceiling, but it doesn’t ruin the place completely.
All the beers we had were in excellent shape, the staff were pleasant and swift to serve us.
Large restaurant space on the main thoroughfare catering to tourists so it has that Munich Marienplatz feel to it, which isn’t my feel at all. Andechser on tap but honestly they didn’t seem to be in the best shape what I tried, and of course the prices are quite high.
Certainly an impressive building, though being attached to a hotel gives it a slightly sterile vibe. Sit inside for quiet and civilised, outside on the patio for people-watching. Beers, being from Andechs obviously, are very good, though probably the most expensive beers in Nuremberg. The entire range is available. Never ate here, but it looked expensive. The kind of place you probably want to go to for a beer or two, but not the kind of place you are likely to end up accidently spending the whole afternoon and evening at.
