Great cozy atmosphere, fine dinning place so advise to be dressed up.. Great food and service. Learnt that Kafers mean 'ladybug' in German and they have incorporated the theme to the drink glasses and small plastic ladybugs scattered on table top as part of décor which was pretty! Interesting interior décor where they have used huge models of luxury perfume... More

We went for brunch with friends. It was difficult to get a table reservation and in the end half the restaurant was empty. Food was ok, but nothing special. Sll only half warm and not even coffee or tea included. Overrated and too expensive.

Dear Jbps, thank you for your feedback on our brunch. We are very sorry that we did not meet up to your expectations. Yes, we are usually booked out - and people show up early, late or stay all day. Some choose to sit outdoors - this is why our restaurant may have appeared to be half empty at times.... More

We spent a Friday night in the city, before going to Frankfurt Airport, which also has a kafers restaurant. Nice place, interesting decoration and great food. I wasn't satisfied with the wine, but the others, who chose it, were. We had no reservation, but the personnel was friendly and willing to help us find a good table as soon as... More

This French style Bistrot is certainly worth visiting. A very warm and charming interior, good food and a very good choice of wines, what I appreciate as wine journalist and wine lover. In summertime you can enjoy your meal outside.

Dear winejournalist, we have quite a few journalists come here and enjoy what we do. Unfortunately hardly anyone, from the writing trade, takes the time to leave such kind and recommending words on TA. Thank you very much! Best wishes from Käfer'S Bistro More

Kaefer's is a wonderful place to visit. The memorabilia on the wooden walls is interesting, you can take a coffee mug or juice glass with the renowned'ladybug' to enjoy at home. Good and friendly service.

Had a wonderful Sunday Brunch at Kafers. It is located in a beautiful building or you can choose to sit outside to enjoy the views of the Kurhaus and Bowling Green.

I've eaten here twice while on business in Wiesbaden. Käfer's has a spectacular location, and I can't fault its food - everything I've had there has been superb. If you know Rules in London, Käfer's is comparable - fairly traditional food done to a very high standard. Their attitude to service, however, lets them down badly. On my most recent... More

It is a nice restaurant located in the central part of the town in a historical building. The atmosphere is good. The service is good but slow. The food is good but not something special. Not a big choice of beers and wines.

Description
Kafer´S Bistro is a capricious companion for the magnificent Kurhaus Wiesbaden. The original furnishings laboriously assembled from Parisian restaurants and markets all over France create a charming setting for stylish banquets, glamourous parties and private dining.

The Salon des Flacons is based on an impressive collection of 178 original over-sized perfume flacons. The Beletage on the first floor is equally unusual. Decorated in red and black, the Salon Beletage also serves as an exhibition area for Gunter Sachs’ photography.

A classic bistro cuisine is served with a new menu every month. Regional prime quality products form a harmonious symbiosis with delicacies from the Parisian indoor markets. Different types of pasta and the finest pastries from the Patisserie are made inhouse.

“Tout Wiesbaden” meets into the early hours on the veranda; visitors and locals alike come to the Kurgarten to enjoy homemade cakes or a palatable glass of wine from the neighbouring Rheingau (Rhine Valley).
