While tiny, this restaurant serves outstanding German food. I visited it twice while on a business trip. I had the Curried Bratwurst and the Wiener Schnitzel, both being excellent. I hadn’t had curried bratwurst before and was surprised how well the two flavors combined. Be warned, the restaurant only accepts cash. Also, if you want a beer with your meal,... More

Have eaten there several times, always excellent. everything made to order so there can be a little wait but worth it. Have tired a number of items never having found one I or my wife didn't like. And the desserts are to die for, all home made not Cisco. Never know what she will have as it always changes.

The best is still the best. Potato pancake Reuben with cucumber salad. Chocolate pear cake. Open for lunch right into dinner. Good for us living with a 3 hour difference. Flavors are unique to this place. Put it anywhere and it would thrive. Service is great too.

Great onion and cream schnitzel, potato salad and cucumber salad. Super nice people. Our first night in Sierra Vista for the birding festival, found this highly recommended, very small place on Yelp and Trip Advisor. Great food, great service.

I was somewhat shocked when I saw this rated #1 restaurant in Sierra vista. Didn't know that many people knew about this amazing place. The food is incredible and the service is great. I try something new every time I go and am never disappointed. Take the family or a date and you won't be disappointed either.

Had dinner June 24th. The place can be a little bit hard to find if you don't know Sierra Vista (like we were) but once you find it you will not be disappointed. The place is small but for a Tuesday evening there was a good number of customers there. I had the Ruben and my wife had the German... More

My husband and I come here as often as we can because the food is VERY GOOD. The servers are friendly and helpful. The food is always delicious. The price is higher than we'd like but we really enjoy this little place.

Some of us love German Food and to find it when you live only 40 miles from the boarder with Mexico is nigh impossible. That is not the case if you drive 1½ hours from Green Valley. This little restaurant is in a strip mall and is quite small. Pretty typical strip mall restaurant, but the exception is the food... More
