So glad we stumbled upon this lovely haunt on our last night in town. It felt like a locals' hangout from the onset, with a lively atmosphere, friendly/knowledgeable/welcoming wait staff. The food was amazing, and the portions were very large and quite filling; a great value for your money. I couldn't finish mine. Our table sampled a number of the... More

The food is delicious and the service very friendly. Also there are many vegetarian meals. However it is quite hard to get a table but it only shows how many people appreciate this restaurant.

Completely delicious food. Great atmosphere. Really friendly staff. We had a stunning evening. It was loud, people were chatty and the staff even introduced us to people with a similar background which was rather charming. Sums up Bamberg!

I was staying at the Welcome Hotel just over the road. Whilst the weather was horrible (snow, wind and very cold!) I didn't fancy walking far, so discovered this place just over the road. It was packed (and we subsequently found out that booking is a pretty much essential practice here), but there were a couple of spaces at the... More

service sometimes was out of control. 2 staff is just to few for a fully crowded restaurant of that size. food was good, but took some time, did not all arrive at once, unfortunately one of us had even to wait for 20 minutes. by than the rest of the table was finished with their dinner. they were friendly though.

A bartender at a Bamberg pub recommended we check out the Pelikan for our one night in Bamberg. When we finally made it to this neighborhood gem (long walk!), I was THRILLED to see the menu and LOVED my meal. It was crowded, but we found a candlelit table for 2. Service was fine for the crowd inside, and we... More

This restaurant is located across the road from the Hotel Residenzschloss. We did not have a booking but they accommodated us at a high table which suited us fine. It's the kind of place you would walk past as it is quite dark and we thought it was closed but when you go in you discover that the back area,... More

food excellent but locals with whom we had to share a table expressed surprise we were there as 'tourists'. They gave us a history of the place and its owners. Rare to be so vegetarian friendly in Bamberg.

I thought this place was really good although it did take a while for the food to come out but I think it was because it was super busy. The menu was very diverse and I believe it was mostly Asian time food but then again it was a diverse menu.
