Description: 350 year old building from Bavaria, Germany, brought to Kimberley BC in 1989. We serve Bavarian specialties as well as regional favourites. Our most popular menu item is our Bavarian Feast group menu and our Schweine Haxen -braised pork hock(24 hour pre-order). We prepare everything in our own kitchen including our fresh baked bread, desserts, and sausages. We are strong believers in supporting our local economy and work with growers, diary farmers and vineyards in our region. We are proud to support our industry employing a fantastic staff of 18 teaching them our values of food preparation and customer service. We invite you for an evening at The Old Bauernhaus Restaurant. Guten Appetit.

Actual experience supports the reviews of this restaurant. We ate here on the first Friday of Oktober Fest in Kimbereley 2013. The food was excellent and included veal weinerschnitzel, sauer braten, knoedle, wonderful sweet sauerkraut, roasted root vegetables, a fabulous wild mushroom cream sauce, spatzle and, of course, beer. The wait staff were very pleasant and we were able to visit briefly with one of the owners Michelle. Her husband and co-owner Nils was busy in the kitchen producing his wonderful fare with the able assistance of what is an obviously talented kitchen crew. When you eat here, they are true to their word that they don't rush the preparation...but, the wait is worth it. They make every attempt to locally source products used in the preparation of their cuisine. You really should include this spot on your itinerary.

We just had our second visit to Bauernhaus and we were not disappointed and certainly didn't leave hungry. The meats are tender, the sauces flavorful and the dessert delectable! The dark German beers were like a meal in themselves..... service was excellent. Well worth a drive up from Montana....

We love German food and were very excited to go to The Old Bauernhaus while we were in Kimberley visiting friends. The history of the building was interesting and we enjoyed the food and beer selection. The only downside was the service. My husband's family is German and we have a working knowledge of the language and a familiarity with the food, but when we asked our server questions about the menu we were met with something close to an eye roll and exasperation. She actually seemed angry that we had questions! Good luck to you if you go in with no experience with German food. Service remained chilly throughout our meal, so we ate quickly and left. Wouldn't go back.

The atmosphere remided me of the old Pubs I visited when I was in Poland. Just a welcoming and warm place.
The History of the place was really neat, and that it was explained within the menu was neat too; old farm house from Bavaria that was taken apart and shipped to Kimberly where it was put back together again (Kind of like a humpty dumpty)
We couldnt just walk in, Thank fully I had called ahead and made reservations!
The the Price was, well, Pricey
But the Food! Oh my goodness it was amazing!! The guy's had the venison, and I had had smoked trout; it was amazing!!!
Dessert too was good we had berry sherbert.
Our waitress was ok, not all that attentive and we had to remind her of things we had ordered whenever she came by to check on us. But still very nice and helpful.
Overall Would Most Deffinatly Eat here Again!!!
