This restaurant is located in the lovely old town (Altstadt) of Bamberg, close to the river. The first day we had a lunch, sitting outside which was really a nice experience. The next day we had dinner inside in the evening. The waitress was friendly and efficient, the wine and food were excellent and we had a good time. I am glad it's possible to find such restaurants in a town full of tourists.

Today we stopped in the Hofbrau for lunch with family and friends. No reservations were necessary and we were immediately seated for our party of 7. The menus were in German and English with enough variety for all of us to find something we liked. The price was a little higher than average but everyone enjoyed their meals, the decor, and the English speaking waitress. Outdoor seating was available in abundance but we opted for indoors due to the chill. Given the proximity to the Rathaus and the visitors center, this is a good place to stop to eat for a "taste of Germany: while touring about Bamberg.

This restaurant is in the old town, close to the Cathedral and is somewhat geared to tourists The food was good and the prices were ok. I had a lunch mid week and it was not overly busy with tourists - the classic Leberknödel soup, salad and Schweineschnitzel. Nice atmosphere for a place on the main tourist walk.
