I've already recommended many friends seek... More

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

Great food and service. Took part in the Bavarian Feast. Enjoyed schnitzel, salad, and veggies for about 30 per person. Only issue for me was that in out group of six we all paid 30 bucks for the feast and go the same amount of food as the geoup next to us that had just 4 people. A couple of... More

We have tried to eat at this well known restaurant several times. At last we were able to celebrate my husband's birthday there. Wonderful food, atmosphere, service! Highly recommended! Well worth the trip to Kimberley!
