    St. Martins

    by Kid-A Updated Oct 10, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is just a general area where lots of good restaurants and cafes are located. It's called St. Martins because of the church. There are a few very good places to eat around here, including St. Martins -- with German food -- and Firenze -- with Italian food.

    It's also a nice place to sit and people watch, or just enjoy the evening with a beer or wine.

    Favorite Dish: My favorite dishes from here are Penne Arabiata at Firenze and Jaegerschnitzel at St. Martins.

    Gasthaus Kurz: Great traditional German food

    by Kid-A Written Sep 6, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    bad camera phone pic -- good food!!!

    The restaurant is one of the best I've been to in Germany. They specialize in traditional German food, such as schnitzel and steaks. It has the feeling of home cooking. It's not actually in Kaiserslautern, but about 15 minutes west on the A6 Autobahn, then a few more minutes up A62 north towards Trier. But it's worth the drive.

    Favorite Dish: The schnitzel is NOT breaded and deep fried, which is a nice change from most restaurants. My favorite is Jägerschnitzel (with a mushroom sauce and peppercorn -- yum!).

    Taverne Am Park: Great place to have a beer!

    by Kid-A Written May 14, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is the bar/restaurant located on the first floor of one of the only free-standing houses that survived WWII. It's a popular place to go and have a drink and maybe have some food in a nice setting.

    Favorite Dish: Pilsener Beer

    Himalaya: Nepalese: German style

    by Kid-A Written May 8, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The owner is a friend of a friend, and he'll tell anyone who comes in the restaurant that it's not real Nepalese food. It's Nepalese food for Germans. If you're friendly enough, and seem pretty fluent in Nepalese or North Indian cuisine, they will cater to your needs a little more.

    On a week night, I'd walk in around 18:00, because you'll have the place (and the waiter) to yourself. Germans tend to flock to dinner at 19:00, so go early to schmooze with the waiter and get yourself a "real" cup of Nepalese tea.

    Favorite Dish: Haven't had a bad dish yet!

    Lotus Vietnamese Specialties: Good food!

    by Kid-A Written Nov 12, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Lotus is a small, fast food style restaurant in the city center. They have some typical Westernized Asian food, but mostly have Vietnamese recipes. They use many vegetables, herbs and spices, including lemon grass, lime, and kaffir lime leaves. The emphasis is on serving fresh vegetables and/or fresh herbs as side dishes along with dipping sauce.

    Favorite Dish: Banh bao: Steamed bun dumpling that can be stuffed with onion, mushrooms, vegetables, etc. Banh bao is an adaptation from the Chinese baozi to fit Vietnamese taste.

    Koi Asia Restaurant: not great, but pretty good

    by Kid-A Updated Nov 12, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It's a pretty well-known place located in the shopping area downtown. It's popular for weekday lunchtime. It's about average for what can be expected of mass-produced, buffet-style sushi (they also have the various Westernized, Asian foods as well). On Sunday, they have an all you can eat buffet starting at 12:00 for 14 Euros. They also have a buffet from 12:00 to 14:30 on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. They open for dinner 7 days a week at 17:00.

    Bremerhof: idyllic setting for a summer evening dinner

    by Kid-A Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Hotel Bremerhof is a restaurant and biergarten set back in the forest outside Kaiserslautern. It's very popular with hikers who like to end up there after a nice hike and enjoy a beer or a good German meal either outside with nice views of the land, or inside in a traditional German restaurant atmosphere. It's a nice place -- I like it there after a hike.

    It's also a hotel, but I've never stayed there.

    Favorite Dish: The bratwurst is good, and so is the schnitzel.

    The beer is tasty too!

    Abdo's Restaurant: Good Turkish Food in KL!

    by Kid-A Written May 13, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a small, but very good restaurant in Kaiserslautern. The owner (Abdo) and his wife can really cook! When you walk in, you see a big spread of vegetables -- that will be his specialties for the night. He really likes to stray from his menu and make you something you really want. So he talks to you, and you kind of work out a meal bases loosely on the menu and what fresh meats and vegetables he has. The only problem for tourists is that he speaks very little English. So bring a Turkish or German speaking person with you (I'm available for the extremely low cost of free food!! : )

    Favorite Dish: Shish Kabob

    Flammkuchen: Try it!

    by Kid-A Updated Oct 10, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The entrance to Flammkuchen, great food!

    Located in a building from 1898 on the edge of the old town city center, you find this small restaurant with vaulted ceilings and typically dark wooden furniture. From France, but well loved by beer-drinking Germans is Flammkuchen, basically a thin crust pizza with delicious toppings. This is one of the best spots for it, they are cheap and vegetarians are well catered for. The only complaint I've ever heard was from another American with a big appetite who complained the portion was too small.

    Come early to get a seat because this restaurant is one of the most popular in Kaiserslautern!

    Favorite Dish: Every variety of Flammkuchen they have is delicious! You can't go wrong!!!

    Zum Landsknecht: Great food! Great atmosphere!

    by Kid-A Written Oct 7, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I really enjoyed this restaurant once we found it. It's located down a dirty alley behind the McDonald's in the shopping/walking area in the center of the city. There's a nice little courtyard that is remarkably quiet for the location. I only ate there one time, but we've been meaning to go back. It was really good, typical food from this area.

    Favorite Dish: I had the Schweinerueckenschnitzel "Wiener Art" mit Bratkartoffeln und Salat. Basically, a seasoned pork chop, potatos and salad.

  • Zum Landsknecht: Cozy German Atmosphere

    by ceby Written Nov 25, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Tucked out of the way, but right in the pedestrian zone is this charming little restaurant. Our first visit was in the summer and we ate in the absolutely enchanting bier garten. For our next two visits, the weather forced us in the cozy dining room. Either way, you will be hard pressed to find a finer atmosphere in which to enjoy a meal, and enjoy it you will. The menu is almost entirely traditional German fare and there are daily specials not on the regular menu.

    Brewpub on a pedestrianised street in the city centre. The interior is quite modern with plain plaster walls, a brick bar counter and a stainless steel gallery. There is a beer garden at the rear and more outdoor seating in front of the building. The copper brewing vessels are on display in the bar.

    Bambusgarten: Chinese Anyone?

    by fisherbray Written Jan 23, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    My favorite place to go in Kaiserslautern for Mongolian BBQ. It is very good. Make sure you go on a Tuesday; it is only 13€. That will get you both buffets for the price of one. Any other day of the week that is the price for only the Mongolian BBQ and on weekends it is 14€; the regular buffet is extra. Truthfully though, I do not think the regular buffet is worth it. There is a very limited number of items, but there is sushi. So that could be a selling point as well.

    Favorite Dish: Mongolian Barbeque

    Restaurant Spinnraedl: Palatine specials

    by Maria250 Updated Jul 26, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    source:www.kaiserslautern.de/tourismus/sehenswerte

    That's what the German magazine "Spiegel" wrote about Restaurant Spinnraedl: Most of the ancient walls of Kaiserslautern are now in ruins, but the Restaurant Spinnraedl is still intact, the oldest half-timbered house in town. The beams and gables date back to 1740 and are well worth a look. Their menu offers great German food.
