Fantasic Evening

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!

Living out here for over 12 years I've been told multiple times to get up there and try it. So I booked a office party for Christmas. I found the building and surroundings wonderful, the service was really second to none. Some really interesting dishes on the menu. I found the food good, not amazing as I'd been told but... More

We made our reservation 2 months in advance because of the season, glad we did as the place was hopping. We ordered the Bavarian Feast for 6. It is a fantastic sampling of the best of German food. Lots of small tastes as appetizers and then the solid German hiking food for the main. Wonderful locally grown produce. Service was... More

We went for a family dinner, as we were intrigued first by local comments on the quality of the food, and second the history of the building. We were not disappointed. First, we would strongly recommend reservations; we phoned 4 days ahead and had to wait until 8PM (maybe a result of being close to Christmas, but all the same…local... More
