Located high above the town of Bamberg, this biergarten is excellent with typical but good Franconian dishes. Very nice atmosphere on a nice day because the better seating is outside enjoying the gorgeous scenery looking at a panoramic view of Bamberg. It is a nice walk (all uphill) from the center of Bamberg (about 10 minutes), but it's well worth... More

We first visited 'The Special' in August '86 and we re-visited in '13 we are pleased to state that nothing has changed. The standards of food and drink are still as high as ever, the location is beyond reproach and the view is still the best in town. Parking and access is a pain, get a cab but you still... More

I just finished reading some of the other reviews. First of all this bier garten wasn't built to make it easy for you to find nor is it a 5 star restaurant. Bier Gartens are for people who understand the German Tradition of relaxing & being social with friends & family. What some of you consider "rude" is normal and... More

We looked for more than an hour and talked to several locals and still couldn't find this restaurant- One actually gave us wrong directions. Maybe we can find it next time...

Really wanted to try the food and beer here. Turned up on a Monday evening, they seemed to have closed off most of the rooms, so there was only one 'Stube' open. It was pretty busy so we asked a waitress if there was space. She pointed to the end of a table, so we sat there. We waited for... More

We went on a very very hot day at end ofJuly. Temperature was 40C! Our waitress was very friendly and charming. The food was really good. We had some sort of smokedham with sauerkraut and potato dumpling- ubiquitous in Bamberg , but better here. Hard to explain- it just tasted fab. The beer was the best - loved the smoked... More

I'm not a beer drinker, but I visited this biergarten with my German husband and his family. It's situated on a hill above Bamberg and has an amazing view of the city. Perfect for a summer evening. The one catch: parking. We had to meander through the narrow streets for close to half an hour to find a spot. It... More

We had a quick dinner as a storm came through tonight. Since much of the unreserved seating is outside, you will need to check the weather before going. The good was the food, fast service, hot food, and tasty. I would have liked more options for beer. We really enjoyed the food and the view, even with a storm.
