As I was solo, I was set to a table with two other couples. One couple was local, we had a great time. I enjoyed chatting with them in my average german "sprache" and we talked about the American election. Food was plentiful, excellent service.

Sure it was nice place- maybe one of the bests in Bamberg but when we at least got a place to sit after waiting 10 minutes, then again waiting before someone would bring us the menu then would come and take our order, I think the order could be really better than it was🙁😯😯-

My friends and I picked this spot based on the overwhelming crowds that were sitting outside the eatery. It looked like a truly happening place. We were even more enchanted with the inside decor. However, all this charm was overshadowed by the utterly rude and dismissive service we received from essentially the moment we sat down. The young waitress approached... More

I believe this is part of a brewery (there are quite a few in Bamberg). They brew a very nice, and different, smoky beer and the food is really fantastic. Good local faire.

Quite possibly my favorite meal in all of Bamberg. Don't believe me? Try it. Fried egg on top of onion straws on top of pork steak with skillet potatoes and horseradish sauce with thick cut bacon. Boom!!!

This place is packed for dinner, be prepared to share a table with total strangers, who will become your best friends by the end of dinner. Right in the center of the tourist area, the restaurant manages to prepare high quality food. One of the specials was grass fed beef with a chanterelle cream sauce. It was cooked perfectly rare...

Nice place - we got seated next to a group of american teachers touring Germany and Europe. Food is good and beer was excellent. Nothing special but nothing wrong either - just a great place to fill up yur tummy with good traditional food and cold beer.

6 of us sat indoors for dinner, a night after eating across the street. Both restaurants are good. We preferred the ambiance at Kachelofen, as well as the service, to what we found elsewhere. The food was great! We had the meat platter, salads, schnitzel, Bratz... And everyone was loving what they ordered. When we come back, I will definitely... More

We had been travelling around Bavaria, when we visited lovely Bamberg. There were 10 of us and we fancied a cool local beet. We sat down at three tables outside and eventually we signaled to the waitress. She took the order from our table of 4 and went inside. After 10 minutes she came out with what looked like our...

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.
