If You Are a German Food Lover This Isn't Bad

This is a place for true German food lovers, pig knee eaters, potato salad fans, and all things German and fattening. It is lard galore at this place and people seem to love it!

Although there were 3 waiter at the door, none of them greeted me as I entered the restaurant. This also happened with the one waiting on my table and as I left the place. Food was too average for the price, but beer was good. Service has to improve a lot to make up for everything else. I'd never recommend... More

exactly what you need: in the center of Penedo, good service, tasty home made beers (lager), delicious German sausages and the price completely fair.

They were very busy which showed in how long we had to wait for our food. The potatoes which came with the meals were cold and two people had fish who said it was ok. I had steak with mushroom sauce which was very nice.

Steak meal for two with a couple of cokes cost £25. Good value and excellent steak! The pepper sauce was full of peppercorns and very tasty. However, too many potatoes on my plate! Great service. Highly recommend.

A good restaurant for daily food (ex: steaks with french fries) and some German dishes. Not the best in Penedo but a good run for your money if you are searching for good casual food.
