I'm guilty of all the usual stereo types when it comes to German food, but boy was I proven wrong at the Bauernhaus. This place is amazing, not only when it comes to the food but also the ambiance afforded by the building. In contrast to the many pretentious dining establishments that have sprouted up around Calgary, the Bauernhaus actually delivers. Well worth a side trip if you're anywhere near Kimberly but do make a reservation!

Don't let the old look to the Bauernhaus fool you - the food served here is amazing and is a must-do if you plan to visit Kimberley any time of the year. Reservations are a must on the weekend as we tried a number of times to "walk in" before learning our lesson. They are part of the Slow Food Movement (so don't rush - sit back and enjoy!) and try to use local products when possible. It has traditional Bavarian cuisine, but with a flare that is more Mediterranean in style.

We were four adults visiting Kimberly on holiday, and made a reservation based on recommendations from other family members. The complete experience was excellent. The restaurant itself was relocated from Germany and is like transporting yourself there. The service was terrific, and the food better. My wife and I decided to share the Bavarian feast, and didn't come close to finishing it, there was so much food. Overall, authentic food, in an authentic German restaurant, that is well worth the drive to Kimberly just to eat here. Highly recommended!

I have eaten at the Old Bauernhaus many times. No, I don't live in Kimberley, in fact I don't even live close to Kimberley. Its an hour and a half there, and an hour and a half back, and you know what? Its worth it.

Authentic German food, and needless to say, delicious!

We recently got married and wanted food from our favourite restaurant (The Old Bauernhaus) at the wedding. The Old Bauernhaus doesn't cater, but they were willing to work with FoodEx Kimberley (a food truck that brings the meal to you) to make it the most amazing meal I've ever had.

Nils and Michelle (and in this case Rene from FoodEx) blew all of my previous expectations of the Bauernhaus out of the water, making this meal, and all others at the Bauernhaus, spectacular!

This place is everything authentic and original! If you know your German food, you will not be disappointed. Our group of 6 was easily accommodated and we each enjoyed a different and delicious dish, all hand prepared and fresh. They even have unique imported German beer and wine which was exquisite. The location half-way up the hill to the ski resort was also very convenient, we only had to walk from our lodging across the street. The prices are a little high compared to other restaurants in Kimberly but the quality and amount of food you get is FAR superior to anything else we tried.
