A very cozy bar that with a great atmosphere and delicious steak that melts in your mouth. The owners are very friendly and welcoming! The best cooked steak I've had in a very long time. I will definitely be back!

Went there with a group of friend to get a good steak. The steak I got was soaked in a distasteful sauce and it was impossible to remove the sauce to eat the meat which was not tender at all. 2 waiters came and asked about the food. When I expressed my disappointment they both ignored me and simply walked... More

Went here with my family after many days with mediocre Austrian food. The place is in a basement and looks more like a "old school" bar than a restaurant - and quite worn. Not very appealing to me but I was glad I went with it and didn't turn around in the door as I was about to. 2 of... More

The 10oz steak options were well deserved after a day on the piste with good local wine and weisbier. Would highly recommend!

We - a group of 6 people (aged 48, 48, 19, 16, 15 and 12) visited Bar California last night. We were "up sold" on soup as a starter with the oldest trick in the book, where the waiter asks around starting with the kids: "Do you want onion soup or mushroom soup, as a starter?" The kids loved the... More

We went to Bar California in order to get some proper steaks - and we realized that Bar California was the right spot. The place is family owned and they are very friendly and the service is excellent. They serve good drinks as well. We got some a couple of long island iced tea as well - well tasting.
