The Restaurant Baeren has been a long term fixture of dining in West Freiburg and we've eaten here multiple times in the 20 or so years we have been coming here. Over that time the decor has been gradually updated, although retaining its traditional 'black forrest' feel, but the food has remained constant. They serve a range of local foods,... More

I booked this place in advance. Not because it was recommended, but because it seemed away from touristville and the menu was varied. A 30 min walk through uncharted territory. The blonde lady that met me was very nice, smiley and invited me to sit where I liked. Taking in a nice evening outside, I was then confronted by some... More

We visited this restaurant on a Sunday evening, it was very busy which I show is a good sign! The wait staff was very friendly, was able to provide menus in English! All of our food was delicious and would visit again!!

The Baeren is a restaurant in an residential area, a 10 minute tram ride (Linie1) from the town centre of Freiburg. Get off at Betzenhauser Torplatz or Paduaallee. The restaurant is a bit hidden, next to clothing chain Kik. We chose the Tuesday special: Beef liver with fried potatoes (Lebe von Rind mit Braegele) which comes with a generous mixed... More

Visited this restaurant having seen trip advisor reviews and we were not disappointed. The food was excellent, really tasty and well presented. Restaurant itself is out of town but easy to get to on the no 1 tram. Downside was the speed, or lack of, service. We waited nearly an hour to get our drinks and even then only one... More

This is a very cousy place with original decoration. The quality of the food is top notch, with good quality meat with delicious dressings. Salads were fresh and good tasting, staff was helpful, however we had a little bit of a hard time to understand the menu since menus weren´t in English and staff had limited knowledge of English. This... More

If you would like to experience the German cuisine and atmosphere, come here. The down to earth atmosphere is unique and all though reaervations are recommended they do have open tables attached to the bar (great architecture) for walk ins and seats at the bar if you were to eat alone, but one could still easily chat with someone.

We found this restaurant by chance, searching round on the internet for a restaurant close to our hotel. We were not expecting much, but what a fantastic find - a terrific atmosphere, helpful staff and delicious traditional German dishes. We really enjoyed our meal. This restaurant is obviously a favourite with locals - lots of family groups, some celebrating anniversaries.... More

Fast service, food seems to be freshly cooked and no microwave involved. Good choice of dishes, also a good variety of wines. Can get hot inside when busy, which it is often.
