Who stays in a hotel on the beach right at Monterey Bay and passes up the opportunity to go to the wharf in Monterey for a fresh fish dinner or to make a picnic to eat at sunset on the beach? Anyone who’s read TripAdvisor and is willing to try some great German food, that’s who! I went to Stammtisch... More

Found this on Trip Advisor while traveling. Outstanding food! Wish it was in my hometown because it would become a new favorite place.

Erwin and Claudia are still doing an excellent job providing real German food here in the Monterey Bay Area. The Schnitzel, the Sauerbraten, the Kassler Rippchen, very good, and if you can get Erwin to get you on the reservation list for the Schweinshaxe, you have it made. Claudia does the Schweinshaxe every so often! it's not a menu item,... More

This place was fantastic. My wife and I just got back from Germany a few weeks ago and did NOT expect to find such an authentic restaurant. The food was absolutely wonderful, the environment was clean and well laid out, and the host/server was very kind. The menu has something for everyone. While it is 95% German, it does work... More

I found reviews for this restaurant and thought we would try it, what a great decision. This little place is fantastic. Owner operated this German food is some of the best I have ever had, served and prepared by family this place can not be missed!

The food is amazing here. It is run by a husband and wife team. Claudia does the cooking. I have never had a bad meal there. He has an interesting personality and can be taken the wrong way sometimes. Look past that go for the wonderful meal.

We were there in early May, 2014 early on a Tuesday evening. We got prompt service - the head of the restaurant greeted us and took our orders. We each ordered different sides than what the main course was paired with - no problem. All was tasty and the atmosphere was great for conversation and dining. We'll go back anytime... More

This is a terrific little restaurant tucked away near Monterey, CA. The ambience is exactly like a small German restaurant in the home country, and the proprietors are very attentive and provide excellent service. The food is excellent. I had the sampler plate for dinner, with an excellent Wiener schnitzel, Weisswurst, and pork loin. The sausage plate is also excellent.... More

This has to be the best German food I have had in the U.S. I was impressed with the availability of German beer on tap, and at a good price! The atmosphere was completely authentic, and the native German waiter did nothing but add to the wonderful memories of living abroad. The food was a little pricey on the dinner... More
