My friends and I were in town for work and asked some of the locals where the best restaurant was. They all replied Schalander. They were correct, this place is fantastic. The food was amazing!

We were looking for somewhere to eat after an afternoons crawling of the bars in Kempten. I saw the sign for this place and remembered I'd seen it on TA. We're lucky to get in on time as the stop cooking at 10pm. We ordered quickly and settled down to one of the nicest meals of our week long trip... More

We have been to Schalander twice - in April and in August. The restaurant is located on the steps connecting the Kempten pedestrian zone with the city hall plaza. In the Summer there is nice outdoor seating available, but the inside is very nicely done, too. The food selection is a mix of seasonal and traditional Bavarian - Swabian cuisine....and... More

Again, we all had a lovely lunch at Schalander. Kids were looked after with books and crayons, adults looked after with excellent daily specials. A lovely day, we chose not to sit outside simply because we like the cozy interior. We had no idea that Schalander was so highly rated here on tripadvisor, and we are not surprised. Highly recommend.

Thank Purim

I and my girlfriend had dinner here just once, during our travel towards Nederlands. We found this place consulting Tripadvisor and we choose to eat here after reading all the reviews. We confirm all the reviews: very nice place, very good food and very available and nice staff. Amazing beer! After the dinner, we had a very pleasant chat with... More

Wanted a close (staying at Hotel Fürstenhof) local restaurant so searched on TripAdvisor and Googlemaps. Made a quick telephone call to secure a reservation for 3 and walked over. Very warm and friendly welcome. Menu itself offers a lot of information. Great choice of local specialities and international standards. My wife needs a glutenfree diet and the understanding for this... More

visited the restaurant while on a business trip to kempten on grounds of all the great reviews. must say we were not disappointed! The restaurant has a warm and welcoming ambience and the service was quick and friendly. I had the allgäuer zwiebelrostbraten but swapped the side for röstkartoffel as I did not fancy kässpätzle and it was no problem... More

I picked this place because of all the excellent reviews, but wasn't as impressed as everyone else. Service was slow and on the unfriendly and stressed side. I wanted to order a specific item and asked to get a different side, the waitress just simply said no. She said all sides were specifically picked for the protein and it would... More

The center of the Allgau metropolis has blossomed in recent years become one of the most attractive city centers in southern Germany. Determined and wisely attention was paid to the settlement of retail in and around the pedestrian zone in the center of town. Small shops stand next to large department stores, well-stocked shoe shops alongside deli and grocery stores, bakeries next jewelers and opticians. On the edge of the shopping mall parking lots were created in parking garages and partially free parking. At short distances makes shopping here a lot of fun and a hint of Mediterranean flair is enhanced by fountains, visible watercourses, shaded seating areas, ice cream shops, cafes, and not least of options
