It was the best meal we've had in a long while...not just in our travels. Thanks to all the wonderful reviews on the restaurant, we thought we'd give it a try and then we can move on to the next one on our list for the next day. But the food just blew us away completely, so we ended up eating here all 3 nights of our stay in Bacharach. The wiener schnitzel was pure perfection--juicy, tender, flavorful and fresh in a crispy lightly-breaded coating. Do you know how hard it is to cook pork and make it tender and juicy?? The pork loin medallions were also cooked to perfection in a light mushroom sauce...which, speaking of the mushrooms, they were perfectly sauteed with just the right amount of searing to bring out the carmelization without being burnt like so many restaurants tend to do. The chicken tenders in mushroom sauce was just as delicious, not to mention the delectable white asparagus and roasted potatoes. Kurt: please teach me how you cook these!!! My mouth is watering just thinking about them as I write this review.

My husband and I had dinner here on 6/1. I had fresh trout almondine that included a nice salad and wonderful rosemary potatoes and my husband had shrimp scampi. Both dishes were great and a really nice change from the German food we had been consuming. Our hostess was great and she even took our picture! She apologized as we were leaving because they were so busy. However, as my son who lives in Germany says, you must learn to adapt your expectations! I only wish it had been warm enough to eat on the outside terrace overlooking the Rhine. We did have a Rhine view, but through the windows. Very nice dining room with fresh flowers on all the tables, and we thought the prices were reasonable - 38 euros including wine, bottled water, and cappucino. We definitely recommend.

We had a great time at this restaurant. We only had one night in this quaint, little town and we're so happy we ate here. The service was quick and the food was delicious. The only thing better than the food was the staff. They were such pleasant people and they spoke great English. I would highly recommend this restaurant to any traveler in Bacharach.

They are the perfect combination of a wonderful couple- the best of hosts and always the best of foods cooked with love & passion... Our celebration of our 25th wedding anniversary in this historical restaurant was very memorable, set up by no other than Fatima put us into the center of the dining room so we could see nice view as well as talk to other nice & lovable couples who were there too, savoring their sumptuous, hearty & amazing foods. Truly blest and honored when Fatima announced our celebration of 25 years of commitment to other guest who congratulated us then thanked them in return. Well, Fatima & Kurt you really given us the opportunity to enjoy our stay... You made it--- The Best Part Of Our Day...!

We stayed at Hotel Kranenturm and the menu sounded so good, we had to try it. Our first dinner was so delicious, we decided to return the second, third and fourth night to try every entree listed between our family of three. Kurt cooks and presents each dish with tender loving care. His venison and lamb were so juicy and tender, each mouthful was a delightful treat. My garlic/herbed scampi was also rich with butter and flavor. Fatima treated us like family coming home for a visit. Such hospitality and delicious food made our stay a beautiful experience.
