Fabulous!

An excellent little restaurant in the heart of a old Bavarian city. A great change from the usual German food! A must to eat at when visiting!

A fair attempt at Italian food but don't touch the Thai food as it is so non-authentic. My kids left in disappointment.....

Yes it was a cold day outside, but that doesn't mean it needs to be the same inside! Server was very nice, brisk and accommodating. The food was a different story. The chicken corn chowder was actually chicken and mushroom soup. I despise mushrooms but the overall soup was good. The curry dish was quite salty and very spicy. Perhaps... More

We have eaten here before and have enjoyed our experience. This time however, overpriced!! Our food was awful! 5 out of 6 of us ended up on the toilet later on in the evening.. $42 for a liter of house wine... Frontera Merlot... nothing fancy... I call that highway robbery. I dont think we will eat here again, unless something... More

i am still speechless at our experience over thanksgiving weekend at this restaurant. only once ever have i ever experienced anything like this before, and we are very seasoned diners. firstly - being the last day open as they were closing for the fall, i can certainly understand a very limited menu. however, if you cannot supply what the customer...

Best dinner since we flew to Canada two weeks ago. My hubby and I split 3 small plates (not small at all) and a fish entree. We are on low sodium diet and prefer mildly spicy food. Since everything is made from scratch, we got what we asked for. Beatiful presentation, flavorful taste, interesting combination of ingredients and attentive services.... More

The Bistro is our favorite restaurant for our most special occasions. New Years with their set menu was very memorable and great value for the excellent quality and attentive service. The beef was perfect, the sauces sublime! We can't wait to return

This little two-level restaurant is situated just beyond the pedestrianised Platzl area of Kimberley. But it's worth making the effort to find it. The food is great, including an excellent bruchetta starter, great steaks and chicken, and proper mashed potatoes. Desserts included a rhubarb crisp and creme brulee. There's also a decent wine list, with some wines from British Columbia.... More
