I had great expectations. And it was OK. I had a tuna steak that was good, especially the veggies. My Bavarian beer came chilled and in the propper glass. I splurged and had a couple of sweets. The BienenStich was authentic and the hazelnut cookies, too.

it's like a shrine to gluten. delicious variety of baked goods, served with a smile. They also make a mean sausage and saurkraut plate that you can take on the plane. I've been enjoying the Panaderia Alemana for over 15 years and look forward to visiting again.

Highly recommend this place! The weiner schnitzel was delicious(it is not on the menu you have to request it) and so was the beer! Most places do not offer hefeweizen so it was such a great treat to find a place that did. A must while in Costa Rica.

Hans made us feel like home from the moment we walked into the beautiful outside restaurant. Service was exemplary and the food was truly excellent. Prices are more than reasonable and you can tell Hans cares about his restaurant, staff, and most importantly his customers/guests. Highly recommend this place!

We have lived on Lake Arenal for 23 years and still buy prodoucts from Hans' Original German Bakery when they deliver here on Wednesdays. The quality is excellent. plus Hans sponsored most of the bakers he brought over from German and trained - many of whom now have their own businesses BUT THERE IS NO COMPARISON WITH HANS' BAKED FOODS....

Anything you pick from the menu is super tasty. The staff is very friendly and always helps you with a smile. I always try to stop there on the way to Liberia! The only reason I gave it an Average for Atmosphere was that they had the TV blasting with the CR news and there was only us two and... More

We picked up a loaf of whole grain bread for sandwiches at this bakery to go along with our Liberian made Gouda cheese. We didn't want to eat out 3xs a day and this stop saved us time and money. It has a full restaurant in children's playground such a great start for people with kids. I enjoyed a great... More
