German Foid at its best

It would be a road side cafe in Tennessee, okay, it is on Franconia. Maybe you will find it difficult to communicate: they speak German only! Hearty dishes of the best quality. No frills. No table cloth. No wine. Excellent beer and really great food.

This pub/restaurant has a nice atmosphere and is popular with locals as well as visitors. The food is mainly traditional Franconian and the portions are generous at very reasonable prices. They brew their own beers, which are excellent.

We called here by chance not realising that it is the oldest pub in Bamberg (14th century). It might be old but the fare on offer is very good. I had a traditional Franconian dish which was first class and washed down with an excellent Rauchbier. It was served by our extremely knowledgable waiter Norman whose advice was very welcome....

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

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
