Very nice german farmer style restaurant with history

I heard it is the oldest restaurant in Bamberg, opened in 14th century. They have very delicious food according to german farmer style. I always go there while I was in Bamberg. I like Schaeufela(some shoulder part of pigs with crispy skin) and Rauchbier(Smoke beer). They have interesting... read more

This place was recommended to us by friends who were born and raised in Bamberg, as authentic Franconian food. I think if you go somewhere you have to try the local stuff and this is the best place to do it. We had their most popular dish, the pork shoulder with potato dumpling and it was great. Plus local beer.... More

We enjoyed a delicious and hearty meal at this restaurant in winter of Chicken Cordon Bleau. Service was efficient and friendly.

Myself and 7 other Australians tried to order some food and beer. The worst service and rudest staff I have ever come across in Europe, we asked at the bar if it was bar or table service, we were totally ignored, eventually some menus were thrown at us and we were told table service, we were all very keen to...

First of all, the Sternla is a Bierausschank, they have good and interesting beers like the Rauchbier. They also offer a beer of the week which, as the name says, changes in regular intervals. Besides their good beesrs, they offer a variety of classic german dishes and everything I ate there was good.

We´ve been here several times, as they have good beer, great food (especially the specials), reasonable prices for the center of a tourist town, and contrary to some other reviews, IMO good service. As a typical Franconian restaurant, don´t go expecting to be waited on hand and foot. Expect your server to be polite, but busy. If you need something,... More

Firstly, like other contributors, I don't understand the negative reviews. If you don't like the local food then stick to the well known hamburger outlets. Local food is served exactly as expected. I chose the Saurbraten (meat marinaded in vinegar for a few days before braising). It was accompanied by the usual red sauerkraut. Great banter with the waitress and... More

We looked into Lonely Planet and picked this establishment. We were not disappointed. The food was simple but well cooked and very tasty. The bonus for me was that there was a wide choice of local beers available. The service was exemplary, always a smile and help with my rusty German. Wife thoroughly enjoyed her snit zeal dish and can't... More

Were the writers of the negative reviews and I thinking of the same restaurant? Admittedly, German waiters/waitresses are not given to the same, "Hi! I'm Brandi and I'm going to be your server tonight! Whillikers!" approach that we're used to in the US, but the women who served us were professional. As for the food, the pork cutlet (Schweineschnitzel Wienart)--about... More

Don't recognise the negative reviews. On a chill October night, we had a warm smiling welcome, almost instant and generous portions of Eisbein and Matjes with excellent local draught beer. And the place was already packed with jolly groups of locals, many of course playing cards.
