The ambience was authentic and the service excellent and friendly. The "feast" on the menu was an excellent choice. Everyone had a choice they liked. You need to go there if you even think you may like German food. You will not be disappointed.

We have been to many of the Schnitzel houses in the Kootenay valley and this one is the best one by far. All of the food is made with fine detail. The rye bread is so fresh, the beets are full of dill, the mushroom...More

350 year old building from Bavaria, Germany, brought to Kimberley BC in 1989. We serve Bavarian specialties as well as regional favourites. Our most popular menu item is our Bavarian Feast group menu and our Schweine Haxen -braised pork hock(24 hour pre-order). We prepare everything in our own kitchen including our fresh baked bread, desserts, and sausages. We are strong believers in supporting our local economy and work with growers, diary farmers and vineyards in our region. We are proud to support our industry employing a fantastic staff of 18 teaching them our values of food preparation and customer service. We invite you for an evening at The Old Bauernhaus Restaurant. Guten Appetit.
