“My favorite in KL”
Reviewed October 12, 2011

While living in KL I was dining at this restaurant at least twice a week. The food was always delicious. Great wines and tasty deserts. I crave for anythin sweet -:)) All this at reasonable prices.
You better make a reservation as the restaurant is often crowded.

“Hidden Gem in Kaiserslautern”
Reviewed June 30, 2011

My wife and I discovered Le Galopin in 2006 and ate there many many (30?) times up until we left Germany in Jan 2011. It is on a side street and does not look like much from the outside but it is worth the effort to find it. Great ambiance (French Bistro) with great classic bistro fare. It is a small place and the owner (Sammy) is the waiter and bar tender. His wife and another fellow work in the kitchen. Coq ou Reisling is always on the menu and very good. His pepper steak with potatoes au' gratin is perfect every time. The lamb shanks (when he serves them) are incredible. He always has some daily specials with some type of fish and plenty of other items on his menu (quiche, sweet breads etc).

He has a reasonable wine list with bottles in the 18 - 30 Euro price.

In my opinion, Le Galopin is the best restaurant in Kaiserslautern (at least in the downtown area) for consistent quality cuisine.

You can have a great Saturday in Kaiserslautern with some shopping on the "walk platz", hit the farmers market to buy fruit, veg, flowers etc and then relax over some drinks and a nice lunch at Le Galopin. (Open for dinner too with the same menu).

Prices are very reasonable considering the quality and service (ie steak with black pepper sauce is 14 Euros, quiche and salad is 8 Euros).

Don't go there if you expecting a Bratwurst, pizza, donner or Schnitzel though. Plenty of other places for that in the area.

I miss Le Galopin and Germany. It was the best 6 years of our life.
