Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

We normally visit this restaurant whenever we are really hungry and in the mood for deep fried stuff. The reason is simple, the portions are massive, the flavours are good and the price is pretty convenient. Normally we go for the Paprika Schnitzel and get two portions for around 25 NZD. Yesterday we tried the pork hock for the first... More

My cousin comes up from Hawkes Bay regularly and ALWAYS dines at this great German styled restaurant. We joined him and his brother this week for a great time. All three guys chose the pork hock, which we thought would be a nice big knuckle. It was more like a complete shoulder and just way too much for any of... More

Whenever we go to Kohimaramar we make a point of having dinner at dee Metz. The portions are large . This time around we were dissatisfied with the lack of spices in the food. The meat wasn't bland, the red cabbage was too sweet. The wait staff was very efficient, the place was packed !

Waitresses in traditional dress which is nice. Nice vibrant atmosphere but the meals dont stack up. Chips were cold- not luke warm. Meat was fine- Porterhouse steak and the crumbed schnitzel.

The venue is in a very pleasant street off the main street, with inside and outside seating, and plenty of parking availability. Inside it has a very interesting rustic decoration. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The portions are truly large. Unfortunately that day the schnitzel was not as crisp as it should be and the salad delivered with... More

Had been to Brauhaus in Singapore, Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne, also had been to an Austrian restaurant not far away from Der Metz. Going there with high expectations, especially seeing the restaurant was always quite busy. However, the taste of the pock hock was quite bland, the schnitzel prepared by my partner was much better. The service was quite good... More

despite of Asian kitchen staff the food is still well prepared. But service is very disorganized and not consistent. Tables full of dishes and long time waiting for drinks or any basic service. Another cost saving idea but are the backpackers really interested in what they should do on floor?

3 of us went here one evening following a recommendation from a friend. We liked everything about this place. Friendless of the wait staff, sizes of the meals, variety of German beers, the authentic feel of the place. We decided on 3 mains but wanted to share so we asked for spare plates and placed the dishes in the centre... More

For the best schnitzels in Auckland. This no frills German restaurant is spot-on with taste and portion. One of our favourite family restaurants.
