This bistro has authentic German ambience and food. It is dark and quiet and peaceful. The service was excellent, but a larger more diverse menu would have encourage me to visit again soon.

I went to a marvelous German restaurant in Huntington Beach by Bella Terra Shopping Mall. The food was delicious. We tried 3 types of sausages and wiener schnitzel. They were so delicious. We also had sauerkraut that was cooked in bacon. We tried red cabbage that was great! We also tried German potato salad and fried potatoes that were great.

This establishment aims at authenticity as a Bavarian restaurant, offering traditional Bavarian and German food, as well as serving differnet types of German beer. There is the bar, large dining space indoor and an outdoor beer garden. They organize special Octoberfest activities and treats every year - we were not there at the right time for that. The service was... More

A meal from home (Germany). Lunch here was like wandering into my mother's kitchen. The Schnitzel was delicious, as were all the sides. The service was excellent and everything was cooked to perfection. There was Germany music and even a video of Oktoberfest playing on the screen in one of the dining halls.

I have been to Old World many times as a kid as I grew up in the area, but moved away to another state 5 years ago. When going back to Old World for a wedding and eating dinner there, the food was remarkable and authentic! I highly recommend the food and restaurant and the prices are reasonable.

There were almost 4 dozen of us eating here. The food was just perfect. The bratwurst was perfectly seasoned, mashed potatoes were real and just the right fluffiness and the cucumber salad was totally European. The chicken and roast pork was smashing. The German sourkraut was absolutely delicious. The right amount of vinegar and crunch just as it was meant... More

Is this place super cheesy and hasn't been updated in like 30 years? Absolutely. But that's not necessarily a bad thing. What it lacks in decor & service it makes up for in reliably good-if not very creative-traditional German food. (Several types of brat and knockwursts, spaetzle, potato latkes, schnitzel, red cabbage, etc. Be sure to check out the adjoining... More

The jagerschnitzel ($11.00) was very good and a good value. Recently, Had the same meal in Vegas at a very popular german tourist trap and it could not hold a candle to Old World which was half the price. Had the kassler pork lion ($10.00) and it was a thick cut and cooked perfect. However, I loved german potatoe salad... More

This used to be one my favorite German Restaurants (given the fact that there aren't that many to be found in this area). No more! We used to eat here at least once a month and found the lunch prices reasonable and the food pretty good (not perfect, mind you - I was born and raised in Bavaria). We went... More
