The mind boggles why you would transport a German barn all the way to Kimberley BC but the original owner did. Suffice to say the building looks like it should be somewhere in Bavaria but is lovely and the food was fabulous.

I am local, and this is by far my favourite place to eat in town. Service is always good and the food is always fresh and delicious. I typically order the feast every time I go.

We had the most amazing meal at the Old Bauernhaus. Everything on the menu was top drawer - especially the sausages and sauerkraut. Great service as well.

Our daughter gave us a gift certificate for The Old Bauernhaus for our anniversary. We are both in our sixties and each of us came away saying "it is the best restaurant meal we have ever had". What more can be said?

We have eaten at this restaurant several times. Whenever we have guests from out of town, this is our first restaurant of choice. If you like to eat, we recommend ordering the feast. The staff are very informative with great customer service.

My wife and I had an amazing time at this place. Amazing history (the building is over 300 years old, was built in Germany, deconstructed and rebuilt in Canada). Definitely have to make a reservation because it was pretty busy but definitely worth it. Huge...More

Though our group was large and they had a difficult time accommodating us. We were all quite excited and had a reservation, though it was too much for them to manage. All 8 adults had 1 drink and kids were fed. Three hours later we...More
