The Bavarian Chef is my special occasion standard for local close-in dining. The Old Train station elegance fits nicely with the delicious German fare.

Traditional German cuisine, top quality food and drink, with a serving of authentic German ambiance. Every bit as good as dining in Germany, minus view of the Alps. Wait staff superb! Highly recommend!!
