Description: Kafer´S Bistro is a capricious companion for the magnificent Kurhaus...
Kafer´S Bistro is a capricious companion for the magnificent Kurhaus Wiesbaden. The original furnishings laboriously assembled from Parisian restaurants and markets all over France create a charming setting for stylish banquets, glamourous parties and private dining. The Salon des Flacons is based on an impressive collection of 178 original over-sized perfume flacons. The Beletage on the first floor is equally unusual. Decorated in red and black, the Salon Beletage also serves as an exhibition area for Gunter Sachs’ photography. A classic bistro cuisine is served with a new menu every month. Regional prime quality products form a harmonious symbiosis with delicacies from the Parisian indoor markets. Different types of pasta and the finest pastries from the Patisserie are made inhouse. “Tout Wiesbaden” meets into the early hours on the veranda; visitors and locals alike come to the Kurgarten to enjoy homemade cakes or a palatable glass of wine from the neighbouring Rheingau (Rhine Valley).

The venue is very nice and the food is also good; however we found it to be catering to frequent business clients whereas the tourists were not so well received. We have found another excellent restaurant in this city which we found by chance and will revue separately.

Kafer's is landmark restaurant in the heart of Wiesbaden. Situated inside the Kurhaus, its interior and décor exude special character that combine with European sophistication, giving this restaurant a very unique ambiance. Their service is superb, and the food outstanding. Ordering beef in Germany has become akin to my attempt at finding fresh lobster in Montana. Reticent as though I... More

One of the great meals I had.. And man I have travelling around .. Elegant, excellent service .. We had a twin waiters serving us and only realized that it was actually two people just before getting deserts.. That was hilarious.. Not cheap at all but not stupid expensive either.

A classic bistro in the Kurhaus. Probably not the cheapest place in Wiesbaden, but this is classic stuff. We only went for a few "snacks"; a starter each to stave off some hunger and a bottle of wine on a reasonably busy Saturday night. Food was very good, service was impeccable and the atmosphere was great.

The staff and food are very good. The prices tend to be towards the expensive side. The brunch is spectacular and cost about 36 euros per person, for smaller children is cheaper. Outside seating is seasonal and overlooks the fountains in front of Kurhaus. Recommend the restaurant.

The schnitzel was so good, and the portion was very generous. We loved it. The only negative thing was that they served small pieces of breads and some cream cheese... More
