“Great for large parties....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2010

I've stayed here and ate here a few times and I think it's lovely. That's not so original...

What I can say is this...it's LOVELY for large parties. We had a our wedding there a few years ago and they did a GREAT job and how many people do you know can say that - at least in the States, they always talk about how they were or almost screwed over.

They did a champagne reception, then cake and coffee, followed by a full course dinner, and finished with desert and coffee all with an open bar and they did a GREAT job. It was great food and GREAT service.

How many weddings have you been to in the States where you remember the food? I was the bride at this one and I ate every thing - that's how good it was! The food and service were great and they were honest and helpful. That's more than many of my friends had at their weddings. I would really recommend it for parties!

“Great location, but does not justify the very bad value for money”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2010

I was there with my family and had a not so nice experience. The location was beautiful, the table having view on the river, and the waiter was nice, but the food was deceptioning. It has the pretemption of being innovative and delicious, but both of the menus are a run of tiny portions with strange couplings of flavours and most of the stuff tastes simply like butter.

For example the grilled fish was small and tasteless, served with very sour mango stripes and 20 g of rice which tasted exclusively like melted butter. The potato cake served as a side dish was soaked in bad tasting frying oil. The schnitzel with asparagus was tiny and of ordinary quality. The asparagus soup with 3 or 4 tortellini inside was tasteless. Only the cheese de chevre with figs and berries and the strawberry sorbet were really good. Prices are very high (the available menus range between 40 and 90 euros per person, and we paid 5 euros for a 0,75 liter bottle of water). Definitely do not go there!

“St. Nepomuk, Bamberg - Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2010

without a doubt one of the restaurants in Bamberg. First class service and a menu to die for with an incredible view of the river.

“Deserves a Michelin Star”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2008

The best dining experience of my stay in Germany. As good as the Michelin star restaurant where I dined in Regensburg.

I recommend ordering the chef's menu you won't be let down. And the hotel would be an excellent choice.

Located in the mill district, it is located on an island and the views and sounds of the rushing river around it are sublime.
