Great German Eats

My husband is of German heritage and that was why we chose this restaurant. It has an old German feel to it, in a good way. Our meal was fantastic. I had the special of the day Elk Gulash and the chef even subed red cabbage for the mashed potatoes. My hubby had a pork dish with a creamy... read more

For those who enjoy an excellent typical German cuisine, you will enjoy the taste of dishes that are prepared with sophistication. We went there twice: once asked a la carte, the other time we choose and recommend the "Bavarian Feast" for those who do not know what to choose, because it has a choice of different dishes. We loved the... More

The restaurant itself reminds me very much of an old farmhouse restaurant I like to visit in Germany, and the food equals the authenticity of the building! There weren't enought superlatives to describe our dinner 'feast', and the icing on the cake was their willingness to accommodate our four children aged five through nine. I've already recommended many friends seek... More

We had the most delicious meal there. The food was great, the service pleasant.It was just like many meals we had in Germany. Definitely a destination in itself.

My husband and I travel regularly to major cities around the world, and are big foodies. I can honestly say one of the most unique and high quality restaurants I have eaten at is The Old Bauernhaus. The restaurant structure was literally knocked down in Germany, shipped over to Canada, and re-assembled. It has an amazing history. The food is... More

Had a wonderful evening with friends. We thoroughly enjoyed the feast. I loved especially that all of the veggies were fresh and beautiful even though it is the middle of winter. Definitely fresh and unique. We will be back!

Took the during a ski trip to Kimberley and the whole family enjoyed it thoroughly. The food was traditional German fare - but with small modern twists which we enjoyed. Friendly staff made our visit extra enjoyable. We will be back!

The barvarian meal included several salads, the appetizer plate and two kinds of schnitzel and was one of the best meals we have eaten out in months. (And we eat out a lot!) Reasonable prices but it is best to get a reservation as opening days in the winter are less then the summer and when we were there the... More
