We arrived on a very busy Saturday evening, without a reservation. However, the host realised that we arrived especially to eat there, and a table was quickly found. The service was really attentive and good, The waitress spoke very good English, not so common in Germany, we found out. The food was as we expected, very big, yet tasty and... More

Waldgeist is on the you must visit restaurants in Germany. The food is good and everything is just extra large. Staff speaks English and it is a great place to enjoy a huge Schnitzel, Hamburger and cold 2 liters beers. I always go for either Jagger Schnitzel or Gorgonzola Schnitzel. I highly recommend it especially if you live in the... More

With a curry wurst which is more than a pound, a 1 foot across burger or a 6 pound schnitzel (yes over 6 pounds - 2.75 kg) you WILL be walking out of there with a doggy bag. Drinks are measured in Litres so be sure you are both hungry and thirsty when you go here. For people with normal... More

Choose wisely your meal, because you'll eat it for several days ! It's almost impossible to finish your meal at Waldgeist, as they are only speaking in hundreds or kilograms, or liters. There is nothing small, from the 600+ grams sausages to the 2+ kg snitzels and watermelon-sized burgers, you won't have a small plate in front of you. Even... More

Nice restaurant for large groups, to go with your mates to drink (large) beers or for families. Nice surroundings, the children can play around. The quality is ok, nothing fancy, but one can say it is really price worth. Large portions. Schnitzel 9,50 € (large portion), steak as from 230g 18,50 €, fried Camembert with salad 7,50. Large beergarten.

The service is quite good. Our waitress was charming, helpful,and very friendly.,I loved the drive into the countryside to find the restaurant. I surges ordering the 1/4... More

My husband is a schnitzel fanatic and we HAD to come here. He believes that there is just no way to make a bad schnitzel, until we came to this place. We came early so the place was mostly empty. We ordered the Jägerschnitzel, his with fries, mine with croquettes. The schnitzels were HUGE and totally tasteless. The meat was... More

The deal of this restaurant is simple - everything is HUGE!!! The portions are enormous! They know you can't finish a 1-kilo Hamburger/Schnitzel, so they automatically put aluminum foil on your table so you can wrap up what you haven't finished. I took the Hamburger which surprisingly was very very good (you'd think that if they make it so big... More
