Schlappen: Great food and beer
Great student bar with a kick ass atmosphere to boot. The men's toilet is...uh...unique..you can find out on your own, but I hope you guys aren't to modest....lol
Favorite Dish: Palatlschinken (a really thin thin thin pizza)
Hausbrauerei Feierling: Best Beer in Freiburg
This is the best beer and biergarten in Freiburg. I spent many (too many) hot summer nights here and can vouch for the potency of the beer. They also have a nice restauraunt across the street if it is winter. You can eat here as wel..
Favorite Dish: oh yeah, you can order a "mass" like in Bavaria, but not after 11:00 p.m. for some reason?
They are located at the Münsterplatz and open from Tuesday to Sunday. It's a restaurant and they also sell wine there from the Freiburger Stiftungskellerei.
Favorite Dish: Schweinefilet (16.90 €) and Hirschsteak (17.50 €)
Freiburger Markthalle/ Martins Bräu: Freiburg's International Market-hall
Are you like me? - You have a hard time to decide where and what to eat and you prefer to look around to see what the restaurants have to offer. Well, then the Freiburger Markthalle is the right place for you! Under one roof, you have access to cuisines from all over the world; Chinese, Thai, Mexican, Italian, French, Indian, American, Turkish...
Take your pick...or if you like German food, and beer for that matter, go directly to Martins Bräu, Freiburg's oldest guesthouse brewery!
Monday - Friday 9.00h - 19.00h
Saturday 9.00h - 16.00h
Cafe Legere: German & Russian & French
This small and cosy cafe/restaurant serves excellent food at nice prices. There's quite a selection of dishes to choose from. The cuisine is international, with strong German influences. Beware - the portions are enormous! Adding to the atmosphere is the great mix of people; everything from school children and students to families, couples and businesspeople.
Cafe Legere is a very popular place, so if you want to be sure of getting a table, make reservations!
Favorite Dish: 'Spaetzlepfanne' (similar to casserole). Small pieces of meet mixed with onions, bell peppers and spaetzle (the German pasta) in a creamy white (wine?)sauce, overbaked with a thick layer of cheese, everything served in a pan!
'Blinis' (Russian pancakes) is another favourite of mine!
SICHELSCHMIEDE: In the heart of Freiburg!
This nice restaurant is located close to the Cathedral in a very nice and small square.The restaurant has also a outdoor terrace,where you can enjoy a nice meal if weather permiting and also a part or the terrace is a "Biergarten",it is like a bar,you don't need to ask for a meal,you can get a table and have some nice german beers!!!.
Favorite Dish: You can ask for some local and international cuisine.
Thai Snack: TASTY THAI FOOD!
....it's not a restaurant, a little thai snack bar at the street with only three tiny tables inside...it's cheap and the food is so great!!! Don't miss to try the chicken with red curry, coconut milk and chili if you like it hot - if you like it really hot, just tell it to the friendly vendors and you'll get wonderful hot, tasty, spicy dishes. They serve also thai Singha beer which is a little bit more expensive than Freiburg's average (as far as i remember EUR 2,10) but it fits great to the food!
Favorite Dish: Their chicken with red curry, coconut milk and chili is really great!
ASPEKT: Great breakfast for low prices
You can eat little snacks the whole day at this Bistro like sandwiches and tapas - but the reason to visit this bar is its breakfast! It's every day, but the best choices you can make on sundays (until 6 pm). They serve everything you can imagine (including fish and seafood), when you choose the breakfast called "Europa" - for only EUR 8,00 incl. coffee and fresh orange juice. They offer ca. 15 different sorts of coffee from all good coffee regions and in countless ways of preparation...worth a visit! But also here the waiters aren't too fast...
Favorite Dish: Breakfast "Europa" with several sorts of sausages and cheeses from different european mediterranean countries, seafood and so much more...and great coffee!
Rappen: Typical food of the region
The "Rappen" is just one example for the restaurants all along the Muensterplatz - they all serve pretty tasty local food like "Kaes-Spaetzle", "Flammkuchen" in several varieties, "Badischer Wurstsalat" and many other things. This food is great and tasty from time to time but be aware - if you eat this kind of german food to often, your body will get completely out of shape :-)
All restaurants there serve an acceptable regional wine, red or white, mostly not an especially good one which could concurre to spanish, italian or french wines, but it fits to the food and is ok. But beer is fitting as well!
Favorite Dish: Flammkuchen!!!
Kolben - Kaffee: Breakfast
You stand around small tables, have your coffee and croissant, sandwiches/baguette with ham, salami and tomatoes and stuff or even cake or pastry. Excellent quality, very friendly folks, familiar atmosphere.

Restaurants at Muensterplatz
There is no special restaurant at the Muensterplatz to recommend - on the northern front you'll find some with excellent view of the cathedral, tables in front. Of course they are a bit touristy, but I found it to be very nice to do some people watching there. :-) Food and service were quite good.
Favorite Dish: I had very good lunch: Maultaschen (a local specialty, stuffed noodles) with spinach and a glass of white wine from the region (Pinot gris).

Haus der Badischen Weine: Wine!!
This is not really a restaurant - it is a place where you can taste and drink a glass (or more) of local wine. They offer tables and seats in front of the house with great view of the cathedral and the Muensterplatz.
Buy a glass of wine, drop on a seat in front of that house and eat your brought food (like the salami, cheese and baguette from the neighbouring food market)!

Gasthaus zum Stahl: Fine food
This traditional inn can look back on a long history - first mentioned in 1680.
It is located in a quiet rural suburb in the East of Freiburg near the Dreisam river. Large beer garden, tall trees providing shadow. Very cosy dining rooms. Service was top, food outstanding. Better make reservations for dinner.
Favorite Dish: I opted for the three-course menu – free choices from the menu list! A Cremant d’Alsace with orange juice as aperitif. Not ordered, and not charged came brioche, ricotta and olives. First course was a green salad with asparagus and strawberries plus Italian dressing (very good). Main course was beef steak (medium) with roasted potatoes and French beans (very tasty). I had a local red wine (Pinot Noir) and mineral water. Dessert was Tiramisu with strawberries. An espresso finished the meal. The bill was 35 Euro incl. tip.

Germany's Best Bratwurst
According to my fiancé, (and he is German so he should know!:-)), the best Bratwurst you can get in Germany, is the one you can buy at the market in Freiburg!
Favorite Dish: Bratwurst; the sausage is served in a small white bread, with ketchup, mustard and fried onions.

Hotel-Restaurant Loewen: Slow Service
Walking around in the old town of Freiburg we found that lovely restaurant and were lucky to get a table without Reservation.
The Interieur is lovely, in a typical german way. Lot of wood and old stuff. You'll find a lot of pictures on the wall of famous people who once stayed in the hotel or had dinner in the restaurant.
Unfortunatelly the service was very slow. We were waiting for our food for more than an hour, which was allright, because it was a busy night.
But as we had to wait more than 20 minutes for a coffee and a cake, we got mad. Don't try to complain to the waitress, it seems that she doesn't care at all.
Favorite Dish: I tried the Loewenpfaennle which is a mix of meat, Spaetzle and a Mushroom-Sherry Sauce on the top. It was very delicious and cost just EUR 14.80.
The Weizenbier was also very tasty for EUR 3.30.
If you are not that hungry and not in a hurry, you should give it a shot. Otherwise, the waiting will drive you crazy.
