Great place for lunch

We dined here during our vacation in 2014. After walking around downtown we ended up finding this gem. The food was great and it was a nice, relaxing place to have lunch.

We went, with some apprehension, to this German/Italian restaurant in Rincon main square. It was fantastic. I have the best pretzel I have ever tried; the bratwurst and the Jaeger Schnitzel were excellent. My wife and daughter went for the Italian side and were not deceit. The gnocchi, mashed potatoes and pasta alfredo were to die for. One caution, the... More

Good Food. but overpriced. Service is attentive. The German dishes are very good: jager schnitzel is super.. The smoked pork chop is large enough for 2.

Great Atmosphere, their new design and menu is outstanding. Every time we are in Rincon we visit and will continue to do so. Food, Beer Options and Atmosphere will get our 5 Stars :-)

The service was great, Nice and cool inside and the food was just out of this world. We were so surprised with how good it was. The pasta is made fresh daily I understand, and it was absolutely excellent. We used our B Rincon card, ordered two entrées and got a free dessert very very good deal, we will be... More

We were in Rincon, PR first half of July, and went to this restaurant with another family, as a group of 8 (4 adults, 4 kids). Our friends had been to the restaurant before, and had been happy. Not sure what happened this time, but when we were there, I think we waited about an hour for our food. While... More

Horrible experience!!! We went on a Thursday night. I had asked them through facebook which nights they had their 2 for $25 special and was told Mon and Thurs. Apparently now it's only on Mondays. So that wasn't a good start. It went downhill from there. We had a party of 8 which I realize is large. However, the service... More

Stopped by for a quick bite to eat on the square. Very clean with excellent service...I had a very basic sausage and eggs and it was fine. Had expected more German fare on the menu...

We had Sunday Brunch here after a trip to the farmer's market. The food was great! I had a club sandwich and my daughters tried the savory crepe and the sweet crepe. Both were really great. The mimosa was strong and made with fresh juice. The staff were helpful, adding to our table when two friends joined our party unexpectedly.

My wife and I had a wonderful time at this delightful German Restaurant. The ambiance was perfect for couples but, also good for family dinning. The food was great, I had the smoked pork chop (the biggest and best I have ever had) with veggies. The caprise salad was a real treat. They carry European beer and have a full... More
