This family owned and operated business is an amazing experience. Remember "never judge a book by its cover" when you drive by, and it is easy to miss. From the road you would never guess what the view is behind this restaurant. It is one of the most beautiful anywhere near this town. The view is one of a secluded... More

I'm not an expert on German food, but I know the food in this restaurant is very very good. I love the fact that the cook, the hostess, and the waitress are family. I also love it when the cook brings the food to the table with a big smile. I would do that too, if I could cook like... More

The service was very good but we were the only ones in the restaurant for about an hour. Food was only average, We sat outside with a view of the marsh which was nice. We won't go back and can't recommend it.

We had the sausage platter as an appetizer and 2 different kinds of schnitzel for dinner. It was the best sausage and schnitzel we've ever had (versus Germany, Switzerland, Austria, etc.). Excellent service and nice view. Engaging, friendly owner. Nice atmosphere. It is very easy to get to and park (versus crowded downtown). Excellent value. We highly recommend it and... More

What a great find in Beaufort. The best schnitzel we have had outside of Europe. Patrick and his family really know what great German/Swiss food is about. In Beaufort you have great seafood but this tops them all. Spend a night here and you will not regret it.

Our first experience at a Swiss restaurant was totally amazing! The food was incredible and the people were very friendly. Even on a rainy day we enjoyed the view and the atmosphere. We will be back next time we passed through the area.
