Bistronauten relocated from Hirschberg to Weinheim in June 2016, and they have continued to do very well. They are open only in the evenings for dinner, from 18:00 to 22:30, Tuesdays through Saturdays.
Housed in the former OEG train station, Bistronauten’s modern interior is made up of an open kitchen, a bistro, a bar, the main dining area and a private dining section. The kitchen belongs to two chefs – Max Still and Johannes Raiber, who work only with seasonal ingredients sourced from small business owners throughout the region. They prepare and serve traditional German fare with modern overtones, and one can really taste the quality.
There are 50 seats available in the main dining area, and these are almost always fully booked at least 4 weeks in advance. We managed to get seats without reservations by arriving at 18:00 as soon as they open, and claiming the seats which they set aside for walk-ins.
You can have anything, as long as it’s on the menu!
There is only one menu – the daily specials. Choose one of three main dishes – 1 meat, 1 fish, 1 vegetarian – to form a 2-,3- or 4-course menu with a soup and/or a salad and/or dessert/cheese platter. An amuse-bouche is presented upfront to whet the appetite. Table water is included in the price.
