Great place to enjoy dinner in Harrison

The schnitzel and the German atmosphere is great. I haven't eaten there for over 40 years but we did in November. Very good.

We have been coming to Black Forest Restaurant for years while staying at the Resort for our annual weekend away. Our weekend always starts with dinner here and it feels like we are coming home. Food is always good and so is the service. Thank-you!

Nice place, good service. I really enjoyed their vegetarian Schnitzel! I am going to ask the chef to give me the recipe! So tasty! Served with some nice Rotkraut. Unfortunately the Spätzle on my plate were cold. The rest was very good, hot and so tasty. I will be back.

Awesome food and service. The restaurant was very busy but we got in without a reservation. Reserve ahead. It is worth it.

One of the best German restaurants in BC. Have been here many times and never been disappointed. If you like traditional German/Swiss/Austrian food this is the place. Great pork hocks and Schnitzel.

We had reservations for 9 of us. Our meals and appy's were very slow with no apologies or explanations. We waited over 30 minutes for some appy's and about 40 for the rest. Then another wait for dinner. The food was very good though. We all enjoyed the schnitzels, and the goulash soup was very good.

Same menu and owners as the restaurant in New Westminster that we enjoy. Very good as usual. I had the schnitzel, roulade and bratwurst combo...and black beer!

The food at this restaurant is second to none. I ordered the Schnitzel Cordon Bleu, which came piping hot with roasted potatoes, veggies and red cabbage. The portion was enormous and I ended up taking half my meal back to our hotel. My husband had the steak and schnitzel combo, which he said was also delicious. The restaurant itself is... More

On a recent visit to Harrison Hot Springs we made it a point to try the Black Forest. It was a Wednesday, there were many specials from which to choose, and the restaurant was full. A good sign! My partner went for the Classic Schnitzel and I went for the Schnitzel Cordon Bleu. Both schnitzels were cooked to perfection. Crisp... More
