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

Our son suggested this place for dinner so we went. It's very pretty and intimate with genuine German owners. They offered HB beer (Hofbrau) so our son picked that over the customary margaritas. We each ordered something different: sauerbraten, pork schnitzel and chicken with spinach noodles. Yum! We had a salad and a potato with sausage soup for starters that... More

We visited the Black Forest for several times and always left pleased and with a smile! The food is really authentic because the chef tries to improve the dishes every day. And you will taste this passion! If you like to eat something special, ask for the "Suelze". Its delcious!!!

The Black Forest restaurant in La Cruz is a gem! We hadn't really eaten authentic German food before but we have now eaten there many times and there's a great choice on the menu. Both the food and the service are outstanding. Thanks to Andrea, Yvonne and Winfried.

I brought a group of fishing buddies to La Cruz, and we ended up at Black Forest on one of our off days. Having just returned from Bavaria during Octoberfest, I wasn't sure what to expect, but was more than pleasantly surprised how good the food is. Our entire group of 5 were very happy with the meals and service.... More

I have always loved eating at Black Forest, but last time I was there they outdid themselves. The Kartoffelpuffer (aka, Reibekuchen, as they call them) were so good it was hard to stop eating. They were very crunchy and tasty and came with a delicious homemade applesauce... it really was to die for! Even my son, who will normally only... More

When Latcho and Andrea play on Fridays, you have to go. There is hardly any better combination of food, service and live music on this side of the bay. german side heavy on the South western side, but if you like Baden, you love this place.

This gem is in La Cruz, which is about 15 minutes north of Nuevo Vallarta. It is owned by Germans and the chef is Swedish. The food is wonderful, but plan on spending a couple of hours to eat, as everything is cooked to order so it takes quite awhile to be served. The pate is a fab appetizer and... More

We have eaten here a couple of times and the food was good but not outstanding. It was nice to get some good German beer and a change of food. Good service and hospitality.
