We love going to this little restaurant! The atmosphere is quiet, and inviting. Their food is wonderful! A German friend introduced us to this place because of the genuine German food, made vy a German family.

We read the reviews & went with high expectations.This is a small, crowded dark restaurant with poor service. Our server seemed unfriendly at 1st. Then she just ignored us. My husband ordered a beer. She said he could go next door and drink beer; he couldn't get one with lunch. Then, he asked for a diet cola. She told him... More

Just got back from lunch at this restaurant and when I looked here and saw it was rated the #1 restaurant in this town ... OMG! Doesn't say much about what we have to look forward to concerning dining experiences here in SV! First impression: slow service, not very clean looking place, stale plastic tablecloths, overpriced lunch menu ... I'd... More

This is a small restaurant, like 8 to 10 tables, in an even smaller strip mall. Our server was wonderful. As far as the food is concerned, the Bavarian pretzel they have as an appetizer sounded great, but was unavailable. We ordered Schnitzel served two different ways. Admittedly, we have never had Schnitzel before but I'm pretty sure you shouldn't... More

Took my girlfriend here for dinner and she loved it so much, she accepted my marriage proposal! =D Authentic German meals and restaurant. Pricey, but the meals are worth it. I wouldn't recommend kids because this cafe is next to a pub and has seemingly-expensive antiques. It's also very small, maybe eight tables. Call ahead if you want to take... More

Took my very German wife here for lunch on the advice of friends. Ordered Goulash. Meal was mediocre, tasted just OK, portions were small, bill was high. My wife can cook better than this, both she and I were disappointed. Won't be returning, mostly due to value of meal.

My husband and I ordered the Tour of Germany meal for 2 today and were delighted with everything: the sauces & condiments, the tenderness & flavors of the meats, the spatzle, German potato salad, red cabbage coleslaw: everything was wonderful and VERY plentiful. We had enough leftovers for several more meals. We highly recommend this place!

These are the nicest people, producing the best authentic german dishes. They are always busy, and we strongly recommend reservations on the weekends.
