I lived in Germany for ten years and this is the closest thing to a German Gasthaus that I've experienced back here in the world. If you want authentic Schnitzel, Bratwurst, German potato salad, or red cabbage this is the place to go in Sierra Vista. The next best thing to being stationed in Heidelberg. . . .

The restaurant offers typical German food - wholesome and excellent quality. The menu has a large selection of dishes, but a limited desert selection. Location is easy to find, on a street east of the Hwy 92, running parallel to Hwy 92.

The food and service were amazing. Not many tables so a reservation would be suggested. Very small with personal service, we had a party of 4, every entree was amazing. If you are visiting the area you must give this place a try, worth a drive as well. So glad I finally stumbled on this place, Sierra Vista is full... More

Go early to get a seat; cafe shares building & parking lot (all small) with a bar. It's tough to find them down a side street on the south end of town, off highway 92. We went for dinner, & found the menu dominated by schnitzel options...all very German. Since Sierra Vista has long been an Army town, finding authentic... More

Excellent food, home-made JUST LIKE IN GERMANY. Good service, pleasing atmosphere that is authentic. Potato pancakes with sour cream and applesauce, a Reuben sandwich with creamed horseradish, warm potato salad and real cole slaw, several schnitzels on the menu and tasty German beer. It was great! Then came the slippery slope that made the place absolutely forgettable... I didn't mind... More

This is a quant, authentic German restaurant. While the décor is dated, the meal was great. Service was great.

This place is tiny so get there early because it fills up fast. We had lunch and while I thoroughly enjoyed by goulasch and side salad, my hubby was grumbling that his schnitzel sandwich was dry, and when he asked for mayonnaise he received a scant teaspoon in a little cup. Our server was very polite and efficient until it... More

This is a very small restaurant 8 to 10 tables maybe. Our waiter seemed clueless. I ordered, he came back and said they were out, I ordered again, same thing, they were out. It was ridiculous. He kept forgetting to bring us things, more ice tea for example. They had maybe six tables busy, not slammed, we were early in... More

Very small quant place to visit. I prefer other German places in town to this one. It's still a local place so we will eat here and support a local business

On a 4 days buisness trip and after the first visit, ended eating here for 3 additional days in a row! Great service and the food was excellent. Tried 4 different Schnitzel and all where excellent.
