„Burgkeller“ is a nice restaurant in a beautiful half-timbered house (built around 1600) at the heart of the old town of Limburg. The name is a bit misleading, though: „Burgkeller“ means „castle cellar“ and the restaurant is neither located at a castle nor at a cellar.
The interior furnishings and decorations create a cosy antique atmosphere. There are lots of candles, furniture made of dark wood, exposed beams and lots of affectionate decoration. The staff was quick and very friendly and the food was good as well. We’ve been there in the off-season and at lunchtime so there weren’t too many guests at the restaurant. That was also the reason why the upstairs gallery was closed (normally you can choose between a table at the main room or at the gallery).
Favorite Dish: The food was good, but nothing special to be honest.
I had a vegetable soup as a starter and chicken fillet with boiled potatoes as main course. Originally I had asked for fish instead of chicken but were told that fish wasn’t available that day. Well, off-season...
Prices were astonishingly pretty moderate. We had expected to pay more at a restaurant right at the old town.
This restaurant is in one of the half-timbered houses in the old town of Limburg. Although its name 'Burgkeller' means 'castle cellar', it's neither a castle, nor a cellar. However it's decorated medieval-like, with armors, swords, and flambeaus. It's a nice atmosphere there!
You get the 'normal' German food there, like schnitzel or steak. But on the menu you'll find the old German word for potatoes, and they use a circumscriptions for things like chips or roast potatoes. So the menu is a little bit like quiz, but not really difficult to understand. What could be more difficult is to read the letters, as they are written in the old way - see one of the photos. I like it, though!
Favorite Dish: Landsknechtteller: you get what we usually call a 'Cordon bleu', a schnitzel filled with chees and ham.
Dali Loco is a very little restaurant that invites you to stay, talking and drinking some wine while you eat their "tapas".
Favorite Dish: We enter on that restaurant because we feel curiosity to see a "tapas bar" there. I have to say that it was a good experience, because the food was excellent. But I have to say too that the dishes weren't all cooked at the spanish way. It was a mixed cuisine between german and spanish tradition.
Ah! As we tasted several "tapas" of the menu, I can give my opinion about the best "tapa" there. I think that was "choricitos flameados", mmm delicious.
Schwarzer Adler, which means black eagle, is a good restaurant with delicious food in the old center of Limburg. It's situated in one of these many half-timbered houses and inside is lots of dark wood. If you prefer it more bright, you can sit outside in the summer and enjoy the view on the other half-timbered houses and watch the people passing by.
It's also a guest house (45 Euro per night for a double room).
Opened daily (except Tuesday) from 11:30 to 14:30 and 18:00 to 22:30.
Favorite Dish: Adler-Schnitzel - escalope with onions, fried potatoes and bechamel.
The Obermühle, which means "Upper mill", is a nice restaurant at the river Lahn. The mill in front of it is quite old (earliest information about it are from 1237) and the mill wheel is still moving. Not always, but often! There's a beer garden outside, but it can be a bit noisy because of the moving mill wheel. So if this is disturbing you, you'll surely find a cosy and calm place inside the building! The food is really good, and if you aren't very hungry you also can get a snack or a good salad.
Open daily from 11:00 to 0:00.
Bien venido in this mexican restaurant! Here you can get all kind of saladed, enchiladas, tacos and also cocktails. The food is very good - and a bit spicy, but still okay for me!
At week-ends, it is mostly quite full there, so better call for a reservation or go there at a normal week-day when it's rather empty! We once had to share our table with two others as it was so full. This was quite okay until they started smoking while we were still eating. At least we hadn't to eat at the bar like the people that came after us!
The restaurant is opened daily from 5 pm to 1 am.
If you like old houses and Italian food, you are right here. This restaurant is in a small half-timbered house, so that there's not much place but which makes it very cosy there. You can watch how your pizza is made and it tastes really good!
