Description: Kafer´S Bistro is a capricious companion for the magnificent Kurhaus...
Kafer´S Bistro is a capricious companion for the magnificent Kurhaus Wiesbaden. The original furnishings laboriously assembled from Parisian restaurants and markets all over France create a charming setting for stylish banquets, glamourous parties and private dining.

The Salon des Flacons is based on an impressive collection of 178 original over-sized perfume flacons. The Beletage on the first floor is equally unusual. Decorated in red and black, the Salon Beletage also serves as an exhibition area for Gunter Sachs’ photography.

A classic bistro cuisine is served with a new menu every month. Regional prime quality products form a harmonious symbiosis with delicacies from the Parisian indoor markets. Different types of pasta and the finest pastries from the Patisserie are made inhouse.

“Tout Wiesbaden” meets into the early hours on the veranda; visitors and locals alike come to the Kurgarten to enjoy homemade cakes or a palatable glass of wine from the neighbouring Rheingau (Rhine Valley).

It is worth it but for the price i expect i little bit more. This is criticism on high level because the service, food and location are amazing. I would recommend to everybody being in Wiesbaden to eat at least once there.

In the heart of the Casino this is a most elegant restaurant. Although part of a larger chain, the food is excellent and the wait staff highly trained. They can be a little pushy sometimes but also happy to provide good recommendations. Put on your 'glad rags' and have a great night out. Combine your visit by attending an opera... More

We visited this restaurant the weeks before Christmas. First of all the location is splendid. The food is average. Service is satisfactory. We had Wiener Schnitzel and we more or less liked it.

Easy to find, the restaurant is located right in the Casino building. Very eye catching interior, high ceiling, nice decoration. Service is quick and attentive, they speak english too. Food is perfect, The appetizer is some local ham, served with tasty ( I guess locally baked ) bread and butter - perfect mix. Don't miss it being in Wiesbaden.

We really like Kafer's Bistro at the Casino in Wiesbaden. It's like stepping into a James Bomd movie or being in Paris in the 1920's. The restaurant is a high ceilinged brasserie type of place with starched linen tablecloths, live piano music and a high energy level.
