Description: Our kitchen is open all day from 11 am to 10 pm and serves Franconia regional specialties. Crispy Schauferla, pork sausages, Franconia Sauerbraten, Bamberger Krenfleisch (beef in horse-radish sauce), etc. Bamberg is famous for beer, in particular, smoke beer. We have two to try and compare. One from the brewery Special and the Schlenkerla Rauchbier . Of course we have a lager, Ungespundets (a U) and Wheat beer. The wine drinkers will also find something here. We serve wines of the Wine Cellars of Wurzburg , both by the glass , as well as Bocksbeutel.

Impromptu visit to this establishment. Our son from the UK really wanted to have schäufela before going home. It was absolutely worth it. The rest of the party had salad, schnitzel and schweinebraten. Service very good.

I was into this restaurant for a fast dinner: I tasted a very good pork shoulder. The workers are very kind and the beer, as always, is at the top level! I was sit outside and it was a pleasure to stay at the open air.
Enjoy it.

The restaurant is authentically traditional, with wood floor and furniture and a large "Kachelofen" (tile stove or masonry heater). It's a nice space. The food is equally traditional, serving the meat dishes found in all the other franconian restaurants in Bamberg and the region. My partner's beef dish was good but not great. I had the turkey breast with french fries and vegetables (couldn't face another hefty meat dish): the turkey was too dry, the fries so-so. The Bavarian cream and chocolate mousse dessert was a disappointment. It came in a tiny class jar about the size of an espresso cup, with about one-fifth chocolate mousse (two teaspoons) and four-fifths Bavarian cream. I've never had the latter but this was a tasteless, white gelatin-based substance. Next to this a great heaping of whipped cream with some chocolate sauce drizzles - the whipped cream tasted like out of a can. I would probably recommend coming here for a beer.

We had goose breast with red cabbage, potato dumplings and beer. It was devine! The restaurant is traditional and simple and the prices were good as usual in Frankonia

When you arrive it feels quite uncool. But it's friendly and relaxed. The crowd is more on the old side. And then the food arrives. Again uncool and very plain looking. Until you start eating. At first, with my spare ribs style pork joint, I wanted a decent sauce. But after a few mouth fulls it was as tasty as a dish from a Michelin level restaurant. Yes that good. In a very down to earth way of course.
If you want a German experience (without the crap service) then come here.

Thank Philip H
