The restaurant Bürgerreuth is an italian one which offers a wide range of excellent foot. Especially the meat dishes are amazing. And not for small bellys ;-) the dishes are huge and fit to everyone's hunger. It is more cosy to sit outside at the...More

We stopped here on our way from Berlin to Stuttgart. The first part of the menu has specialities from the open fire grill. From these we tried Kalb and Rindersteak. Both were excellent. Open wine (merlot) was also good. Tiramisu was fine. I would love...More

We dined at Burgerreuth 3 times with a course at each opera break (suggest you book your table and chose your starter/main dish for each of the break before going to the theatre). Food and service are excellent. They have a gorgeous terrace, they did...More

Pretty good Italian fare, very good pasta and pizza, salads are huge servings. One sits very nicely outside, service by the young staff is good, at times of a fully occupied terrace a little confused (possibly students during the Opern Festspiele). This restaurant is an...More

About 300 yards uphill from the Wagner Festspielhaus in Bayreuth, this restaurant is a hive of activity after the opera and you'd be wise to reserve a table even though it's huge and can hold a lot of hungry people. Parking is on the grass...More
