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.

Great to have an alternative to Mexican cuisine. This German restaurant doesn't disappoint. Very friendly owners. Very good schnitzel. And be sure to have a margarita! Only disappointment: apple strudel which was a bit soggy.

Although my husband took ill when we dined here and wasn't able to eat a delicious chicken with pasta dish I was able to devour all the delicious German cuisine. I had the pork schnitzel, spätzle and Caeser's salad. Plus I topped it off with a yummy sundae! Service was attentive but not intrusive. Our waitress was very sweet and... More

Excellent food served by attentive and friendly people. We were a group of 8 and everyone loved their food...and the beer. Good variety of German Weisbier and Dunkel which were a great change of pace from all those local lagers.
