Sorry to hear that your friends did not enjoy the Sauerbraten. It is strong in taste because it is marinated in red wine and vinegar hence the name "Sauer"Braten. As for... More

We went with a group of friends after an all day outing on the ocean. The German food was cooked to perfection. The service was fine, actually everthing was great. If you are craving something for a change other than the typical Mexican fare, eat here. It is a five to ten minute walk from the bus, but easy to... More

I hadn't been to the Black Forest in a while, and after a great dinner I am already planning my next visit. Anyone who enjoys real German food should give it a try.

Who knew? We tried to go here and because of an unseasonal rain they couldn't accommodate us. We went back and were we glad we did!! We had authentic German food in Mexico! My husband ordered knockwurst with sauerkraut and a side of red cabbage. I ordered the catch of the day (mahi mahi) prepared with the most beautiful delicate... More

The proprietors are German expats, and they brought recipes for schnitzl, etc., not otherwise known in these parts. They have a tasty musical duo of a Friday night. Prices a little high for La Cruz, but much lower than Bavaria.

We shared the apple strudel which was very good as well. Our friends said this was the best food they have had at a restaurant so... More

My inlaws were all german and I lived in Germany and I can tell you this is authentic German food. Good prices and live music 1-2 times a week. We saw flamingo guitarists that were exceptionally good. Restaurant is open roof so stays cool and you can dine under the stars. good wine list

Had dinner here the other night and will definitely return. A clean, intimate german family run establishment. Linen table clothes and food that will knock your socks off. The liver pate is as good as you will find anywhere. They have flamenco music on Friday nights with some unreal talent on stage. They have been open for 16 years which... More
