The best meal I have had in Canada so far. That is all I need to say. We went for the tasting menu and every dish was a delight. The wine is amazing. The atmosphere is just lovely. They take great pride in the food and the history of this place and it shows. Please go here when you're in... More

Kimberley is known for its german flare but if you want to kick it up a notch and taste some modernized german cuisine with an obvious touch of pride put into the food go here.

This authentic Bavarian restaurant (brought over piece by piece from Germany) was a real find. We had a great meal and the service was fantastic. The apple strudel and ice cream made entirely on site was a real highlight!

Sunday, August 3, 2015-my husband & myself along with 2 other couples had dinner at this restaurant. I don't even know where to start? From the history of this barn, to the inside, to the chefs, to the waitress, to the food is indescribable. The Bavarian Feast was just one of the many foods we tasted. You would swear they... More

My family and I have eaten at this restaurant a number of times; it is a 'must' for us when we visit Kimberley. The food is well-prepared and the atmosphere does certainly remind us of Bavaria (I've been there a number of times and am of Bavarian heritage). The meals are 'Bavarian' with a bit of a twist (i.e. not... More

We went here for a birthday dinner and had the Bavarian Feast for 5 as well as wine and desserts. The food was amazing, and I would definitely recommend getting the feast so you can sample the widest assortment. Nothing we got disappointed. The garlic prawns, schnitzel, spinach salad, and potatoes were particularly good. Several notes, very expensive, so come... More
