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

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 decoration on the walls which are instruments of the farmers in old... 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.

The service was so bad we left and found another restaurant. The drinks came after 20 minutes and the first course after about 45 minutes. That was enough for us.

Zum Sternia seems to believe they are doing their customers a large favor! They should be closed down by the town for their lack of professionalism. Prison grade food served to a large group of tourists from Uniworld! You must sit down, shut up and eat what they tell you. No questions asked. Enter at your own risk!

Of the several bad restaurants we encountered in Germany this was the worst. From the plates of tasteless, unseasoned, ground beef patties (called meatballs) to the over vinegarized potato salad , it was all bad. The staff was rude and slow except when they passed by our table flinging down the plates with a clatter. The whole experience was dreadful.... More
