“Great Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2014

This is the second time that I've eaten here, and I have nothing but praise for the outstanding meals that I've had here. I would highly recommend getting a reservation and trying this restaurant. The weiner schnitzel and other dishes are superb. The restaurant itself is an old Bavarian chalet that was imported to Kimberly and rebuilt to serve as it is. Its very rustic, but very neat sitting in a chalet that is over 350 yrs old.

“Very good meal, loved it all”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2014 via mobile

Great restaurant. We've been here before, and make sure to come back every time we're in Kimberley. Always good food, and the staff are great. Nice authentic meal (the couple next to us who were visiting from Germany definitely enjoyed theirs as well.) It was tough to get in - we had a reservation for 5:00 pm, and that was as late as we could get because they were booked full for the entire evening. Next time we'll book further in advance!

“Historic”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2014

This is a beautiful old building moved piece by piece from Bavaria in Germany. Very cozy! Very friendly atmosphere, great service & wonderful food. See the menu on-line. Its a little expensive but definitely worth it for a treat. Best in the off season when its quiet & you can take your time & enjoy the atmosphere. You must make a reservation!

“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.
