The outside seating area overlooks the pittoresque market square. This makes this place perfect to sit down, have a drink, something to eat and enjoy the historical surroundings. Service is friendly and OK, the same goes for value for money.

This little pub in Bernkastel-Kues is not be missed on your visit! Grab a table outside for a pre-dinner beer or head over to wind down the night. We were here many nights in our trip in 2015 and I'm looking forward to stopping by during our trip next week!

We visited in December after being here before in August. A different experience this time sitting inside but still a good one. Service was as efficient as last time and we enjoyed a gluhwein each evening after watching the advent calendar being opened in the main square outside. This is a cosy bar for a drink or two before/after dinner.

We sat outside for a couple of pre dinner drinks. The service was great, the waitress was over within seconds of sitting down and again when we needed refills. A lovely place to sit outside and watch the goings on of the square.

This is a great little bar to have a relaxing drink while watching the world go by. The bar is in a super location on the busy square. We were in Bernkastel for 3 nights and visited this bar every day.

Great little place. Visited a few times, both day and night. Staff were always friendly and drinks kept full! Good place to chill out, and seating outside to watch the world go by.

Well, as crazy as the title sounds the place is crazy too! First of all for a non-german speaker like me, an invitation to go to the "BB" place sounded exotic. Fabulous it turned out to be with the inclined building jutting in to the street and the lovely room with a view to top it up and of course... More

Many of the nice places to have a drink in Bernkastel seem to close very early, but fortunately this place stays open to a sensible time. Very nice Bitburger pils. Sit outside for a nice view of the historic town square. There's even a canopy and heaters outside for when the weather isn't quite so warm.
