A testimony from someone poolside, and then TripAdvisor testimonials brought us to the Black Forest. Would never have found it otherwise. It is located right in a residential area, and for me that was quite a bit of the charm. As we approached the restaurant we heard chickens crowing, which is music to the ears of a country boy turned... More

Thank you so much, vincyntmonson. Your review gives us a fresh view of the surroundings of our little restaurant. Our restaurant is open now for over 18 years and as an owner, you sometimes experience the tunnel view without taking in the broader view. And so thank you for reminding me/us of the beauty of our surroundings. Thanks again for... More

We found this little gem a few years ago on our winters in Nuevo Vallarta. The owners told us their story of how they came on a vacation, fell in love with the area, went home to Germany, sold everything & came back! We were happy they did! As our German heritage gives us cravings for some REAL German dishes,... More

What a lovely treat to have something so different in the middle of Mexico. The decor was lovely. The hosts were so friendly and service was wonderful. Food was excellent. We had the schnitzel, which was amazing! Portion size was more than enough!

As proof of of this food writer's enjoyment of authentic cuisine, I dine here at least three times each week in the winter. The family owners, the staff, the ambiance and the creative and traditional food brings me back often. Yvonne also makes a mean Manhattan and excellent margaritas. Their dark beer is reminiscent of my best pubs in Germany.... More

Hello Andy I, thanks for taking the time to write this review. For those of our guests who do not like the Spätzle we offer rice of fettucini.

Visited in a group of six. The schnitzels were excellent and for a good price, 195 pesos. The service was excellent. The restaurant was very full and quite noisy. I would recommend it.

Description
We are located in La Cruz, just 15 minutes north of Puerto Vallarta and are a family-friendly restaurant offering a full-bar and a modern German menu emphasizing on freshness and quality. German cuisine means so much more these days than just sausage, sauerkraut and beer. Rather it reflects today's Germany with its distinctive medley of modernity and tradition.

The restaurants menu embodies this fusion of old and new with a fresh, modern twist to traditional meals for you to enjoy. Passionate about food, the Proprietors cook from their hearts and consider the restaurant an extension of their home. Each guest is treated as an invited guest to be impressed with the ambiance, service and most importantly a wonderful, memorable meal.

We hope you enjoy discovering more about this increasingly popular cuisine as you journey through their menu of foods and beverages from modern Germany.
