Up to now I can only tell about my trip here early April (Easter Monday), late afternoon. It was marvellous weather, which is not really usual for early April (but Easter was early anyhow in 2007). So not many restaurants were open that afternoon or maybe not really prepared to host hungry visitors.

Der Kleine Prinz (= the little prince) was the only option and I was very much glad that I did not have another coice, as my dinner was very much delicious !
The restaurant has seating inside, with a lovely touch of Tuscany (sunyellow painted walls in brush technique) and sparsely but delicate decorations. (as much as I love my Palatine, but sometimes the decoration can be a bit kitschy – that’s why I liked the Prinz so much with its appealing deco). Outside seating is available as well and it must be heaven in summer when the wine is green and provides a cool shady roof.

The food was heaven as well. Menu is short but every taste will find something. You can choose between soup, pasta, meat and fish, and of course, the Palatine speciality Saumagen (stuffed pig’s stomach), plus dessert and coffee.

Favorite Dish: I had soup and pasta, as these were described as being made with bear’s garlic (ramson). What a delight !!! Already when the soup was brought, the air was filled with the bear’s garlic aroma ! It was homemade and fresh, and served together with fresh baked (homemeade) bread. Pasta was also a feast, homemade and full with bear’s garlic (I think it shows in the photo), just the right amount of olive oil and little tomatoes and parmesan cheese.
They told me, bear’s garlic dishes are only served until end of May (= end of the season), which confirmed my impression that they do care of what they serve ! (= they won’t even think of offering stuff from the freezer).

They are also recommended in the (German) Palatine Restaurant Guide of 2006/2007.

Prices: My soup was 3,90 €, the pasta 7,50 €.

Update April 16, 2007:
In case, bear's garlic or ramson are not familiar words, the official name is allium ursinum and Wikipedia has also a short description with photos. This herb is extremely popular in Germany by now, well, maybe even trendy, there is a lot of food with it by now, spread, cheese, even sausage.
