Authentic atmosphere-feel, sit with the locals and enjoy really good German food -"get to the point" waitresses. Trout was excellent, juicy pork meat with sides of sauerkraut & boiled potatos, the apple dessert (local speciality) was fantastic - crispy baked slices - YUM. Very affordable for the 4 of us, 3 course dinner with a round of smoked beer & local white wine with main course @ Euro 22/pp.

Even though it is in the tourist area (literally "under" the cathedral), the quality and the price of the Bavarian food are OK. The mushroom pasta is actually a good choice for those who are getting tired of pork-heavy meals.

This was a great place for dinner. It gets busy very early so get there before 7 pm for dinner. The portions are huge, so don't eat too much before going. It's in the old town of Bamberg with lots to do after dinner.

The place is in the heart of the town. Food is very good. Service is OK. Some friendlier than the others. Few words in English are spoken, which helps. It was a warm day and we wanted to sit outside, but tables are shared and many guests smoke, so we ended up being inside. The local smoked beer was very... More

Beer is excellent, although we are not fans of the locally-brewed smoked beer. Ate outside on tables that seat 6 so get used to having neighbors. It was comfortable and fun. Waitress was very nice and friendly, but food came out slowly. Traditional roast beef with great gaby and not so great large potato dumpling. Schnitzel was excellent, with excellent... More

Schweineschnitzel Wiener art mit Bratkartoffeln und pfifferlingen. Wiener schnitzel with fried potatoes and chanterelle. The best food ever. Originally the schnitzel was with pommes frites, but they switched it for fried potatoes without any trouble. Very friendly staff, and great location - in the center of the old part of Bamberg.
