Breisach (formerly Altbreisach) is a town with approximately 16,500 inhabitants, situated along the Rhine in the Rhine Valley, in the district Breisgau-Hochschwarzwald, Baden-Württemberg, Germany, about halfway between Freiburg and Colmar — 20 kilometres away from each — and about 60 kilometres north of Basel near the Kaiserstuhl. A bridge leads over the Rhine to Neuf-Brisach, Alsace.

This review is aimed at (a) those who are on a Rhine river-boat cruise; (b) those whose boat makes a stop at Briesach long enough to linger ashore; and (c) those who wish to "go native" and eat off the boat.
If you fit the criteria above, do have dinner at Kaiserstuhler Hof, a leisurely 15-minute walk from the town's docking area to Richard Muller Strasse, where the family-owned hotel/restaurant takes pride of place. But don't linger too long if you're going there for dinner: it takes a special pleading--at least in the dead of the winter--to keep the kitchen open after 8!
My wife and I knocked at the door a minute or so after eight, hungry and wet. The owner answered our knock and plea for food and ushered us into the weinstube (the main dining room had closed), a warm and friendly space decorated for the holiday season. The one waitress spoke English (thank goodness) and was kindness personified. The chef offered us an amuse--a meat terrine--before we ordered dinner: a thick slab of goose-liver pate (shared), pot roast with horseradish sauce (for me) and a tender, panfried veal chop (for my wife). Togther with tip and a good bottle of Franz Anton merlot, the most reasonable tab came to 106 Euros.
Our visit could not have been more pleasant: The food, ambiance, and service were exemplary. I recommend the Kaiswerstuhler Hof Restaurant without reservation.

It was my first time to try Greek food and the experience was excellent. Portions are huge, a lot of meat. Waiters were also very friendly. We had to wait quite some time for food because the restaurant was full, but it was worth it.

Had the freshest salad with grilled porcini mushrooms and topped with an egg for 1 meal, then a wonderful pumpkin soup and beef bourguignon paired with pinot noir. Excellent! Breads are homemade, as are the breakfast jams.Dear SandraBaja, thank you very much for your really kind comment and your great rating. It will be a pleasure for us to welcome you again in our Kapuzinergarten. Best wishes, Engelbert Hau

We visited here on a very hot Saturday, for lunch. Although it was very busy, we were offered a table in the shade. Food was very good, reasonably priced, and with good portions. My Dreierlei of Herrings was excellent, and the children had too much schnitzel! My wife had a mixed fish platter.
Service was friendly and it is hard to find any fault with this restaurant. 4.5 would be a fairer score.

We were strolling in a rather cold day, trying to avoid too much touristic restaurants. Although Humpen is exactly in the pedestrian zone, it looked not so touristic, and it was we were looking for. It looks like a pub, wooden counter, wooden tables, mid-dark light. We had two flammenkuchen which tasted good. Very kind service. Nothing to complain. In case we are in Breisach again, we surely could take into consideration to come here again

They have a remarkable choice of dishes, but as one would expect with such a choice they can't do everything well. I'd stick to the kebab dishes, the regional specialities they offer seemed rushed in the kitchen -- lots of shortcuts.
Otherwise the service is solid, entertainment on the weekends.

We popped into the Café Ihringer on Easter Monday 2013, when the weather had picked up after a miserable weekend and Germany's old folk had come out in their droves (and coaches) for a traditional early-afternoon coffee and cake. So it wasn't the best time to try for a late lunch, but it's a good way of showing up a place's flaws. Having read some of the reviews in German, I thought it might be useful to add my thoughts in English, since they are well in line with one of the German reviews.
While the queue at the cake counter was quite long, it was handled quickly and efficiently. Unfortunately, the same could not be said for the table service, despite a seemingly huge number of waiting staff. It was some five minutes after I ordered the day's special of Frikadellen with potato salad that I was told there was none left, so I went for the Spätzli gratin that my wife had ordered. This was pretty disappointing when it finally arrived, looking and tasting distinctly like it had been cooked in a microwave. Both the Spätzli and the cheese, instead of being golden brown and with some nice crispy edges, was pale and soggy and had a strong smell of dough. We both left half of our portions, which for us is highly unusual.
Then came the agonising wait for someone to appear so that we could ask for the bill, which was punctuated with the rhythm of the toilet door I was sitting right next to repeatedly slamming shut (the toilet seems to be an insider tip among passing hikers, cyclists and bikers as well as the café's patrons). During this wait, I had time to queue to buy two cakes to take away and then sit back down again. Miraculously, as we gave up and got up to leave, our waitress suddenly appeared from nowhere and we were able to pay with a clear conscience.
This place is fine for a leisurely afternoon coffee and cake for the pensioner set, but don't expect much more than that.

Breisach at Rhein was badly hurt under WW2. Therefore it is nice to visit a traditional German inn with all traditions. The Osner family runs "The Schlüssel" – hotel and "Wirtshaus" in the lower old town.
We were well treated at arrival and soon we had our "Pilsner" after having been placed at a nice table. We ordered Schnitzel and Cordon Bleu as we were seeking traditional German food this day.
Everything was tasty but not too exiting. The old chef (Osner senior?) made his way among the guests to ensure that everybody was happy.
It is worth mentioning that we first missed the exact place of The Schlüssel and seated ourselves in a nearby restaurant on the same street. However the waitress there effectively "missed" us wanting to order, so we left that place (Humpen) in anger.
The Schlüssel is not like a German "Brauhaus", but probably as close to it as one could come in Breisach.

Several friends had recommended this little restaurant on the outskirts of Breisach; and today we had our first (and definitely not last) meal there. There were five of us, and everyone loved his or her choice, the food straightforward and delicious, the portions generous. The decor is modern without frills but with fresh flowers on window sills and on every table. In summer there are tables under trees. Parking is easy.
A little jewel well worth looking for.

I'm italian and I find ice cream in south Germany quite good in general, apart that every flavour has vanille aroma since germans love it. but here this is not the case, stracciatella is great, based on fiordilatte ice cream with rich dark chocolate pieces!!
