Yum!

Great meal! From local meat and cheese plate to our mains, all were so delish. Service was a little slow, but they are writing all orders and cheques by hand so maybe that was it. I would return because of the great food.

Ate here with friends about two days ago and were really looking forward to a fine meal in this rustic building in Kimberley. The inside seating was acceptable though the seats were hard pine in the Bavarian style, but cushions were provided.Because it was a very hot day, I would have expected some airflow, but no fans were provided and...

Wonderful appetizer to lead off the meal. Everyone in the party chose a different entree and they were all excellently prepared and presented. Cowboy style portions provided plenty of fixins for breakfast the next day. Will definitely go back on our next visit!

This restaurant is in a 350 year old barn that was brought from Germany and serves the best German food in town. You can't go wrong here!

It was wonderful to taste some great Bavarian food again. After traveling in Europe extensively we felt we were back in Germany. The food and service were excellent. Make sure you make reservations as it is very popular

Seriously delicious, worth every penny! My wife and I had "the feast" and EVERYTHING was perfection. A must stop for anyone visiting Kimberley. The staff was attentive and very welcoming. This may be the reason we come back from WA state.

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 mushroom... 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.
