Dine inside the cozy brick-lined former horse stables or outside on the lovely patio at this restaurant inside the historic stone houses of the Steinhauser Hof hotel (its name, Urgestein, translates as "stone"). The ambitious tasting menus highlight local products and are best when paired with one of the 350 wines from the massive wine list, all from the Pfalz region. Splurge on the six-course surprise menu for €130 (including wine pairings), or try the €95
six-course or €70 four-course menus (wine is extra); you can also order such à la carte dishes as pigeon marinated for a week with carrots that have been roasted for an hour, chanterelle cream, and sunflower seeds; or sea turbot with a prune cream and baby cabbage. Leave room for the tasty desserts, including brioche with caramel sauce and honey ice cream.
