Die Butterhanne is a full-fledged restaurant and the menu was interesting, but I didn't eat there as I was heading to Celle for lunch. I sat on the lovely, spacious terrace with a good coffee and looked at a few tourist leaflets.
It's hard on the neck but fun to try to decipher the old, carved inscriptions on the high beams everywhere in town. Die Butterhanne has quite a few, remember to look up!
This was a beautiful old restaurant serving traditonal German food -- the building outside was very "Goslar" also! The hotel dates to 1521!
The hotel and restaurant are resplendent with wood carvings of mythical and biblical figures.
When in Germany, an Italian ice café is a must and this is the best one I've found in Goslar.
Favorite Dish: Amaretto Becher...gosh I'm predictable :-)))
