Came here for some schnitzel and it was fantastic. Had the fondue to start schnitzel for a main course. Met the chef and he knows what he's doing. Real Bavarian cuisine! Highly recommended.

We wanted to try a traditional Bavarian lunch in this very cute little town of Kimberley, we had lunch there and unfortunately the food was very average. Would not recommend this place.

My wife had the Tourist Special of Schnitzel, salad and fried potatoes. Excellent! Just like her mother makes! I had the bratwurst platter with sauerkraut and salad. Was so good I bought 10 of the home made bratwurst to take home with me. Excellent meal, great surroundings. Very enjoyable! Try the hot mulled wine, a great way to warm the... More
