“Quirky, Fun, Good Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

This German/Euro restaurant was having a little Oktoberfest celebration which we were lucky enough to happen upon. German fare - sausages, potatoes, strudel and more - was pretty tasty, and made better by liederhosen-clad quartet playing traditional German music. Large selection of German/Euro products, and beer. Service was a little slow, but with some aggression, we got all that we needed. Fun find in Boise.

“Great food; quaint European hole in the wall”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2011

You walk in, and it's hard to believe you're in Boise. This little hole in the wall in a strip center off Overland is a great find. The walls are lined with European food products for sale, so it's like a grocery store in addition to a cafe. There is a deli case with European meats and cheeses. There is an entire ROOM filled with a massive beer selection from all over Europe, and there are also many wines - organized by country.

They have weekly theme dinners featuring food from various regions. We ate there when it was Hungarian. One of the owners is the chef and the other does all the front of house service. They were both welcoming and we enjoyed talking with her (while he was cooking) - she was happy to share lots of stories and information, make dining recommendations (which we accepted), recommend a good wine to go with the meal, and overall she was fun to interact with.

The food was very, very good and we are looking forward to going back many times over to try the cuisines featured each week. Prices were reasonable, the atmosphere was very European and it was nice and quiet so you could converse. A lovely, locally owned alternative to the same old chain restaurants. Clearly the chef is talented - our meats were prepared perfectly, the sauces were great, the portions were quite hearty, and everything was clearly homemade by someone with attention to detail, not some line cook eager for a break. Overall a charming place; it would be a great place to meet a bookclub or other group as well, as there is space and it's the kind of place that wouldn't mind and would make your group feel at home.
