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.

Excellent food at a good price

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... read 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.

This is a 'Gasthaus' as they used to be: cosy, traditional with lots of quirky décor and pictures on the walls. Good food quality and value. Caring service.

We had a very pleasant evening at Kachelofen eating tipical and traditional franconian food and enjoing very good regional beer. Personnel was very gentle and friendly. And when we went out the atmosphere was even more magic because there were 5cm of snow on the ground !

The food is wonderful, typical German. The people there are very friendly. Lovely tile oven (Kachelofen). Been there a few times with the German language school for foreigners - and I recommend it!
