“There should be a rating above "excellent"!”
Reviewed September 13, 2013 via mobile

We just dined at the Kastel Restaurant - and had the full 8 course degustation menu (which really became more like 12 with extra treats from the kitchen). This was by far the best meal I have ever had. The food was all amazing - inventive and complex but also clean in the way flavours were presented. The service was fabulous - and we made a great choice in putting ourselves in the hands of the Maitre d for our wine. It was also lovely to be able to meet Chef Kellerman who came out at the end of service. This was a fabulous experience to be remembered always. If you are in Bavaria do yourself a favour - stay at this hotel and experience this restaurant.

“Absolutely the best meal we have ever had. Mr Kellerman is superb”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

We stayed at the hotel to enjoy a castle during our trip. As part of our stay, we chose to dine at Restaurant Kastell. There are not even words that can accurately describe the meal that we enjoyed there. Thomas Kellerman is an incredible chef. An artist at the top of his craft. His menu was sensational. Have I gushed enough? If not, let me continue. We both had a 6-course selection that took almost 3.5 hrs to enjoy. Each course seemed to be better than the prior, and just when we thought we were done, they brought out an extra course of extra dessert. After all the "special" courses, we ended up with 10 courses. The service was on-point at every turn. There when you needed it and invisible when you did not. The sommelier recommended a great bottle of wine that went perfectly with our meal. This meal was not inexpensive, but was worth what we paid and then some to say the least. Any one who travels in the general vicinity of this restaurant and does not eat a meal prepared by Mr. Kellerman has done himself a great disservice. The main courses of duck and venison (locally sourced from the surrounding forests) were succulent and perfectly done with just the right sauces. You MUST get a reservation. They only have 7 or 8 tables that once they are reserved, that is the end of that table for the evening.

“Sensational”
Reviewed October 25, 2011

We recently stayed at the castle while visting Germany from Australia. We originally intended to stay one night, on our way to Munich. However, we had such a wonderful time that we stayed a second night.
The restaurant, Kastell, is particularly memorable. It was easily the best restaurant we tried in Germany. The food, the presentation and the service were all first class.
We will definitely visit again!!!

“What a fantastic experience!”
Reviewed July 22, 2011

We visited Burg Wernberg in May 2011 with 2 friends whilst we were visiting Europe from Hong Kong and the US. During our trip we ate at a number of highly rated restaurants in Europe. However, the Kastell was the best of them. The food was exceptional and the presentation just as good. We each ordered the special menu and each course was better than the previous one.
The staff was very attentive and friendly and we had a wonderful dinner.
The setting (in a tastefully restored castle) only added to the memorable experience.
It is a "must do" if you happen to be in this area. We will go out of our way to visit it again.
