Short menu but really tasty (specially the pumpkin soup and the goulash). Warm and friendly atmosphere. Good beer too. Higly recommended.

Visited Bamberg in November, so it was cold and snowing on my first night, luckily this place was only a few minutes walk from my hotel. Go in, say "hello" to the other customers (it's a german tradition) take a seat and wait for the waitress to come over, the menu is in german but I was lucky that the... More

We stopped in this pub for a dinner, walking through the interior to the outdoor garden (inside is closed during the summer). My wife and I were greeted by the only person serving had had beers and dinner. When the meal was over and we went to the counter to pay, our waiter stated that if we were satisfied with... More

After a less than positive experience in Bamberg the previous night we thought we would try the Zum Sternla which was recommended by our apartment manager. What a change. They didnt have an english menu but the owner said he would help explain. He was very helpful. We had the local bratwurst, sauerkraut and rye bread together with the Spezial... More

Very nice restaurant with option from the local cuisine. They also have several local beers, including the well known Rauchbier (that one which tastes like bacon :-)). The service is also extremely friendly and fast. I tried a Wurstteller, which is a mix of sausages. I recommend also the Schäuferla.

This is definitely one for the locals. I ate chicken here, and the drinks were very local as well! They also have local slaughter appointments where there will be a good feast from the meat. Beer offerings are wide ranging. Food quality is great, and service very good as well! You can ask them to change your side dishes and... More

Zum Sternla is the oldest wirsthaus c. 1380. We had a mixed plate of several different sausages, beer & a shot of a local liquer. Our server spoke english & was very helpful with ordering. Everything was delicious. The atmosphere is very quaint & everyone was friendly.

We visited on a Sunday evening with our family. First of all we were told that there is no written menu, all the dishes were on a board on the wall. This was hard to read as some in our party are elderly. Anyway, we ordered and were told that two of the hot dishes were sold out. Note, that... More

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.

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.
