the restaurant is a piece of art - the best of La Belle Epoque - high ceilings and gilded mirrors. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable, our waitress spoke at least 5 languages. The food is sumptuous We did not reserve and I was a bit worried by the sheer class of the place but they truly are lovely and... More

We had reserved for a group of twenty persons for a Thursday evening dinner. Group consensus rated our meals as exquisite in taste and presentation. I had the best lamb, green beans and polenta I had at a restaurant. We all had a wonderful evening. I can highly recommend Kafers! Inge Moorman

Menu was limited. Food was ok,not great. What was very upsetting was, that they serve you appetizers, small pieces of bread with some cream cheese, we thought was a friendly gesture for ordering dinner there, just to find out that it's assumed for everyone that goes there that they get charged for them without even ordering it. Like the place... More

I went here with a party of 6 and was somewhat aprehensive after having bad experiences with the quality of the food Käfers provide for the Wiesbaden Kurhaus (usually cold and unspectacular). I must say although there was a serious event taking place in the Kurhaus (Olympia Ball for Hessen) the service was, at least first, quite decent. It got... More

The food, service and atmosphere are all QUALITY! Octopus carpaccio was simply outstanding. If there is a fault, it is the length of time our food took to be served. Even by European standards, the wait was noticeable. Still, I would return and recommend without hesitation.

It is indeed a shame that such a wonderful venue in the heart of Wiesbaden with such a potential has been wasted entirely: Don't go: the staff is arrogant, inattentive but worst is the lady MAITRE D! She only fussed around one table occupied by people she clearly knew and neglected together with the rest of the staff all other... More

We visit this restaurant up and then, the last time with two friends from Thailand. Again we enjoyed it and had a great summer evening outside on the terrace in nice ambiance and with soft live background music. Like in every restaurant the service is a key factor. As usual we were served very attentively in a professional, but personal... More
