Dining options: After-hours, Reservations
Description: 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.

One of our teachers recommended this place for a meal, and one of the teachers also worked here in the past, and thought it was a good place to get a meal. I went here with my spouse and some friends from England visiting us. They have a menu in English, which made their lives easier. The variety of choices at this restaurant is great! I ordered the Asparagus with 6 Nurnberger sausages (wurste), and it was good, hot and just the right amount. Their wurst tastes good, and is similar in taste to one other place where I had them. My spouse had their Leberwurst, which was as good as that which we cooked at home from our local butcher. The friends had a Radler, which they enjoyed, and one had the Nurnberger Wurst with sauerkraut, which he thot was very good, while the other had the Asparagus with potatoes, and was very full. We all enjoyed our stay there, eating and relaxing in the warm summer weather under a sun umbrella, and the server spoke very good English and was pleasant. There were some tourists there, but then it was on the way to the Dom, so easy to see. However, there were lots of locals there on other days, so with good food, reasonable prices and nice waiters, I can recommend it.

I was in this restaurant with some friends: if you like the German food, this is the right place to test the typical Franconian food.

Great food and had a terrific Italian waiter, Giancarlo. Found the restaurant on Trip advisor and we were nearby. Glad we tried it.

We went to this place last night for dinner. The waitress took our drinks order while decided what food to order. I went to this location for a particular meat platter that some other guests had posted photographs of on TripAdvisor, but the waitress said they wouldn't do it as it was too busy. The rest of the menu was quite standard regional dishes, so it was difficult to decide. She returned, still without the drinks, saying that she was waiting for us to decide if we wanted to eat there before bringing the drinks. More professional would have been to bring the drinks and give us time to decide.

The food we chose was quite tasty, although the lettuce leaves of the salad had not been washed properly, so we were crunching on earth/sand, which was rather unpleasant. I mentioned it to the older bald waiter, so that they could improve things in future. He just grunted, not really bothered at all!! Either he was having a bad day or is always like that...?!? One young drunk customer went to the toilet with his beer. This member of staff told him to leave it on the table, grabbed it from his hand, took it outside and banged it down on the table! Disgusting behaviour!

This same drunk customer was going from table to table harassing other guests, and then decided to sit with them at their table. He was known to the waitress, who didn't seem bothered at all by this disruptive and rude behaviour!

We went to this place because of the high ratings on TripAdvisor. We would not rate them so highly because the poor service really let the place down. Next time, we will go elsewhere.

We arrived for a late lunch and were warmly welcomed by the staff. Their english was limited but was enough to help us order as menus are in German.
We tried Bambergs famous smoked beer (locals drink it for breakfast) not a favour\rite of mine, I preferred the white beer.
To eat there was 4 f us and we chose to share the Wiener Schnitzel pork flank and fries12 Euro and Bamberg Skillet for 2 persons for 28 Euro which included pork shank and shoulder, bratwurst sausages, potato dumplings, fried potatoes, sauerkraut and cabbage. It was sensational, I can not recommend highly enough. It was a Bamberg highlight. On another note the shopping in Bamberg was great!!
