Busy corner of bamberg where you can eat outside and watch the world go by. Good choice of traditional dishes washed down by local beers.

Visited here with friends. Restaurant is quite small and in central location, so you need to book. Service from the start was excellent. I had the asparagus soup, pork and potato dumpling and apple strudel. All were excellent. Price wise very good. Would highly recommend....More

Waitstaff was very warm and welcoming. Glüwein warmed us right up. Had the pork shoulder, it was amazing. Every bite melted in my mouth! Atmosphere and food is truly authentic, strongly recommend.

Actually this is less a question and more a comment to you about the staff at the Katchelofen. I know the owner and did know the staff (as of a few years ago) and the place is far from rude. I am sorry that you had a bad experience with that particular waitress, but instead of getting on a website and land blasting it, telling people to never go there, maybe you should have asked to speak to the manager. As for them "reserving good service for native Germans" this is a complete and utter falsehood.. my husband and I are Americans, and we were treated so well that when we left Germany they actually gave me a card signed by the whole staff and a beer mug and the owner and some of the waitstaff cried with me over the fact that we wouldn't be seeing each other anymore. These people were so friendly in fact that when my sister came to visit us while we lived in Germany, we were excitedly approached by one of the waitresses at the Christmas Market and she hugged MY SISTER who she didn't even know, but said that she would love just because she was my sister. Then she insisted on taking her to meet the staff who was on duty at the restaurant, and they fed us for FREE. And before you go saying that my German must have been really good or something, I barely speak the language ... just a few sentences, because no matter how much I understand I just can't speak it. Has it occurred to you at all, that MAYBE just MAYBE you were putting off the unfriendly vibes because you were... as you said "forced" go there because everywhere else was to full? As for the food being average, that is your opinion... and I can't say anything about that... other than I will disagree with you and I have eaten at a lot of places all over Germany and grew up with a Germany Father who was an Executive Chef.

Authentic atmosphere-feel, sit with the locals and enjoy really good German food -"get to the point" waitresses. Trout was excellent, juicy pork meat with sides of sauerkraut & boiled potatos, the apple dessert (local speciality) was fantastic - crispy baked slices - YUM. Very affordable for the 4 of us, 3 course dinner with a round of smoked beer & local white wine with main course @ Euro 22/pp.
