Some of the best schnitzel that we've had in a long time. And the mustards were amazing. Lots of selections for flavours. We would definitely go back and dine here again! 10/10.

We just happened into this gem while looking for a place to eat in Kimberly on the way to the Cranbrook Airport. The wienerschnitzel was delicious with a lovely mushroom brown sauce. The apple strudel tasted like it had just come out of the oven, served with a light custard sauce. We will definitely be back the next time we're... More

Very disappointing experience. We all ordered Schnitzels and it was horrendous. The meat was soaked in oil that had a very old taste to it. We couldnt finish our dishes.

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.

Our family enjoyed a lovely evening at Chef Bernard's. The authentic German cuisine was delicious and plentiful. Chef Bernard comes out to welcome his customers in person..The restaurant has a unique decor with all kinds of memorabilia on the walls and ceiling. Our grandson especially loved the fish tank in one wall and the train going around on a track... More
