“Authentic Bavarian dining!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2014

When we married in Munich 50 years ago just a few kilometers from the original location of the Bauernhaus we never dreamed that we would celebrate our golden anniversary in a real 350 year old Bavarian restaurant serving authentic Bavarian specialties, near our retirement home in Kimberley, BC. What luck! We have enjoyed every special event here for the past 12 years and tried everything on the menu with not one disappointment except that they do not serve German or any other European wines but they do have German beer on tap.

“Great food, good value!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2014

Mother's Day meal at the Old Bauernhaus - can't beaten the historical building and the superb menu. The "Feast" has a little bit of everything but ordering two "Feasts" will certainly feed three people - probably with leftovers to take home.

“Still amazing !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2014

We booked this restaurant for Good Friday while in the area for the holiday weekend. We have been twice before, and were so looking forward to this reservation. We were not disappointed. Another great meal and great service. We look my daughter and her boyfriend and all shared the "feast". Couldn't finish it, but sure made an effort! Amazing food. You won't be disappointed ! Best food in Kimberley.

“Hmmm German. ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2014 via mobile

Went to the Bauernhaus for a friend getaway. Read the reviews and had to try them. There was a bunch of us with about six kids. We made reservations a few days before which seemed to be a good idea. We all ordered the requisite schnitzel and they were very nice. The mushroom sauce was excellent. The decor is nice and quaint with the tables and chairs giving the feel of old world charm. They brought out the kids meals quick and they seemed too satisfy. The meals do come out a little on the slow side but this is part of the experience. If you want to dine and dash probably not the best choice. Our only quibble is that the strudel was a trifle bland. The mousse was very nice. Next time we are in Kimberly we'll be back.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2014

Don't forget to reserve to have a table! Great food, great atmosphere and kids' friendly.
We were 9 and the food: venison and pork schnitzel as well as Sauerkraut or any other plate we ordered were excellent and really tasted like in Germany and Austria!!!!
