Authentic German

We went to Gasthaus Gutenburger for lunch and lucky for us they were only serving the buffet. It was great because we got to try a little but of everything. The schnitzel was SO good and then sauerkraut is the best sauerkraut we have ever tried (and we lived in Germany for 5 months). The decor is... read more

Best German sausage ever. A restaurant tucked away on Portage Avenue. It is definitely worth the drive. Funniest part of the evening was listening to the Chef pounding the meat to tenderize it in the kitchen. We had a party of 5 and it was a great night, staff were friendly and helped us decide what to try. Portions are... More

The food here was very good, and the staff are very friendly and up beat. This would be a nice place for a family dinner or a group of friends out for a good time

Went here on the recommendation of a friend. We went on a Friday for the lunch buffet. Cost around $18 each but we had expected it to be more. Huge selection of German foods. Worth the visit. I believe the lunch buffet only happens on Thursdays and Fridays and a reservation is recommended.

My wife who is from Germany wanted a meal that felt like it was from "Back home". After asking around with many of my co-workers someone suggested Gasthaus Gutenberger. I'd never had authentic German cuisine before however my wife said it brought her right back to the meals they used to eat in Germany, I personally loved the veal and... More

We didn't know this restaurant exhisted untill my wife and I heard this was an excellent restaurant by some friends. We agree. We've eaten at restaurants in Germany and other German restaurants in Winnipeg. Gasthaus Gutenberger is definitely on par. This was the first time i've had butternut squash soup and it was excellent. My wife and I both had... More

Ended up here on vacation. I read online that the restaurant was a little expensive but my in-laws were paying. I had the scallops au gratin, an appetizer, because I don't really like sausage (a large part of the menu). My food was good but the restaurant had a dreadful atmosphere. It was dark and some of the other patrons... More

This was our first time to try this restaurant. We were kind of disappointed. I'm sure it was probably very authentic German food but I couldn't understand the serving of the Caesar and house salad. The décor could also stand an update. You do get large portions but we prefer quality over quantity. Perhaps when we are in Winnipeg again,... More

If you like German food and a great buffet at a reasonable price, then this is the place for you! This has to be the best stocked buffet I've ever seen in town, and they expect you to eat! I took what I thought was a reasonably sized dinner plate and loaded it up, only to be told that it... More
