I've eaten here twice while on business in Wiesbaden. Käfer's has a spectacular location, and I can't fault its food - everything I've had there has been superb. If you know Rules in London, Käfer's is comparable - fairly traditional food done to a very high standard. Their attitude to service, however, lets them down badly. On my most recent... More

It is a nice restaurant located in the central part of the town in a historical building. The atmosphere is good. The service is good but slow. The food is good but not something special. Not a big choice of beers and wines.

We could sit outside and look over the "Kurhaus" park. Well located and parking close by. Food offering is nice and good wine selection. Service is excellent. We enjoyed the business lunch (Italian style vegetables & duck & espresso) which is a great value offer.

Housed in a historic building in a prime area of the town, the restaurant definitely has a good ambience. The walls are filled with photos of famous people most probably have dined there. Food was quite good with some seasonal specialties. I ordered the large white asparagus with veal schnitzel and was not disappointed. I think we were the only... More

The food is good, the setting is phantastic: "old Europe" at its best. Perfect for a nightcap after a visit to the nearby theater. I can recommend the "Steak Tartar". The deserts are also very tasty but you might want to save some money for the adjacent casino?

Positives: Excellent food. Pet friendly. Live music (piano). Lots of cold/hot/dessert options. Negatives: pricey (but you get what you pay for - great food) Tips: Buffet Bistro is only on Sunday from 10:30. Sitting inside you will hear the pianist, you will not hear him from the outside.

Love the ambiance of the restaurant; very clubby and elegant. The fish baked in salt was delicious. Professional and English speaking staff. Live piano. It's in the very grand casino which is a plus too.

Description
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).
