The Spit Roast House - Old Chancellery & Café Ratsstübchen

Idar-Oberstein spit roast from the grill over beech wood fire and regional specialties. At the market place Oberstein below the Felsenkirche.

Our restaurant is located in one of the oldest half-timbered houses in Idar-Oberstein, directly on the market square in Oberstein, right under the world-famous Felsenkirche. You can sit inside on 3 floors and outside on 2 terraces.

You can watch the roast master prepare the spit-roast over an open flame. In addition to the Idar-Oberstein spit-roast, we offer regional good plain German cuisine. Coffee and homemade cakes are also on offer.

For hikers: Next to our restaurant, the exit to the Felsenkirche and the two castles as well as to the dream loop "Nahe-Felsen-Weg" leads past. We are in the immediate vicinity of the Saar-Hunsrück Climb.
