We love the setting on the water with a view to the Altes Rathaus; however, the food is always average. We recently took a friend there for lunch and were actually very disappointed. For good food there are many other wonderful places in Bamberg. For a lovely setting, don't miss this. You'll likely still enjoy it. Wunderschöne Lage am Wasser... More

This place is perfect for breakfasts. They offer several options. Dont miss the omelette it was the best for breakfast. Aa for beer, all beers in bamberg taste great. Try the beer of the month for a change. As for the food, it was all good quality food but most impressive was the classic tarte. Oh and the view is... More

Make a reservation and sit out on the terrace for dinner under the lights with the sounds and sights of the river below - it is magical! The service was outstanding and so was the food. Modern, inspired and inventive German food. A must when you are in Bamberg!

Well, number one they have the best ice cream I've ever tasted. And I'VE TASTED A LOT. Chocolate chilli ice cream for goodness sake! We ate here for dinner one night, with stunning views of the old bridge, and thoroughly enjoyed the food and service from the delightful waiter. They cater well for vegetarians. Then we back the next night... More

Three of us dined in this restaurant for lunch, and had an unforgettable experience. As we arrived we were offered a table on the terrace which is situated on a bridge with fast flowing water underneath our feet. The view from here was beautiful, and the gentle water sounds calming. The food was delicious, and a nice choice of wines... More

We finally got around to trying this very stylish restaurant. In a city with an excellent collection of restaurants, Eckerts has one of the nicest locations. The Stylish exterior houses a thoroughly modern, light and airy restaurant. The menu has something for nearly everyone and the staff is as friendly and helpful as any we have found in Bamberg. Alas,... More

Great traditional food, wonderful view over the river. Friendly and attentive staff. Overall best restaurant experience in Bamberg. Went back for a second visit.

If you want to go here (the roof garden overlooking the river) you have to work a bit for it - which is good because it did not appear overrun by walk-ins. The food was fabulous - with chanterelles being the big thing. Also the veal cheeks were really quite spectacular. Nice service too.
