Friendly service and a very unique variety of food for the area. Sort of a great blend of German AND local Mexican cuisine. AND try the GOLD / TOP SHELVE Margarita on the Rocks --

Our second time there and it was better than the first. Absolutely the best place I have eaten in La Cruz. Can't wait to go back. Great service, food and atmosphere.

Absolutely my favorite restaurant of all time. The best food. Phenomenal service. The local beer nights are an extra bit of local spice and happiness. If you don't go here while in the Puerto Vallarta area, you have missed the best thing there. Cannot say enough positive about this restaurant.

I have been visiting the Black Forest for around fifteen years. I go there every time I am in PV.

When I've got guests in town this always a hit. Great German food, lots of German and craft beers, and wonderful people that own this restaurant - 18 years now! Sunday is 2 for 1 schnitzel - a fabulous bargain - but reserve your seat!

A German treat while in La Cruz…the minute my husband heard about the Black Forest he had his designs on visiting this restaurant as soon as possible. He is of German-Austrian descent so it was a given. We went for an early dinner and were very pleased at the offerings. Andrea, one of the owners, took excellent care of us... More

The schnitzel was so very good. Everyone should also try the apple strudel! We had wonderful service and all the staff was very friendly. A little piece of Germany in Mexico.

The 2 for 1 schnitzel is a great deal. The schnitzel is excellent! Some of us not a huge fan of red cabbage. Their desserts are wonderful. Tried the Black Forest cake and choc mousse pie. Yummy!

Description
We are located in La Cruz, just 15 minutes north of Puerto Vallarta and are a family-friendly restaurant offering a full-bar and a modern German menu emphasizing on freshness and quality. German cuisine means so much more these days than just sausage, sauerkraut and beer. Rather it reflects today's Germany with its distinctive medley of modernity and tradition.

The restaurants menu embodies this fusion of old and new with a fresh, modern twist to traditional meals for you to enjoy. Passionate about food, the Proprietors cook from their hearts and consider the restaurant an extension of their home. Each guest is treated as an invited guest to be impressed with the ambiance, service and most importantly a wonderful, memorable meal.

We hope you enjoy discovering more about this increasingly popular cuisine as you journey through their menu of foods and beverages from modern Germany.
