Had been craving Jägerschnitzel since my last travels in Bavaria. Convinced the 'better half" to go here. Really enjoyed being able to sit outside and everybody was very friendly, with great suggestions and a couple of samples. Treated like family, not tourists. Everything was terrific!...The food, drinks and service. My wife insisted return on another night! It is now a factor on future travel plans.More

Family dinner with the kids. Passed by this restaurant many times, finally made it here. Owner and servers extremely nice and attentive. Food was excellent; kids tried Schnitzel and devoured it. Husband loved the vast selection of imported beers. Great apps: potato pancakes to die...for. Loved the stroganoff dish that I had. Was a fabulous cultural experience for the youngsters; got a kick out of the wall of cuckoo clocks. Would highly recommend!More

After several days of similar food in Aruba (fish, rice, veggies), we were looking for something different and saw Bavaria had some good reviews. We took a cab over, and although the location is less than ideal (it really is next to the Wendy's near...the rotary), the food and service could not have been better. My husband is a chef and has lived in Germany and he was impressed by food. We had the potato pancakes (yum!) and then schnitzel and their version of stroganoff and both were very good. The serving sizes were large and the prices reasonable for Aruba. The patio outside was nicely lit and tables very well spaced. Definitely recommend a visit!More

We have been coming to Aruba for over 25 years and this is first time we tried this restaurant based on Trip Advisor reviews. It started off great with the selection of beer to drink and placing our order for dinner. Then we waited and...waited and waited for our meals to come. The server told us twice we were next. After sitting for over an hour and 15 minutes our meals finally came. While waiting, a woman came by our table and asked how was everything. My friend said we were waiting for our order and woman just seemed to ignore her question.The beer choices were great, but the food was disappointing. It will be a while before we return.More

Wow this is some good German food! Loved the Potato pancakes and the Stroganoff. My wife got the sausages and saurkraut while my son got the Wiener Schnitzel. Everything was delicious! We be back!

I have eaten at several german restaurants outside of Germany and this is one of the best! The beer selection is excellent, and the food choices outstanding. The quality of the food is outstanding. I ate the Jaegerschnitzel, red cabbage, spaetzle and apple strudel and...it was all tasty. German music playing in the backround is a nice treat, and the staff are all welcoming, friendly and wonderful. I highly recommend eating here and supporting this restaurant.More

Had dinner at Bavaria German Restaurant. Atmosphere was a flat 0 but the food more than made up for the lack of music or sounds of any kind. Ate the goulash and the “pig knee” which were both very tasty. They came with Spatzel and...mashed potato.More

Weinershnitzel prepared to perfection both the breaded veal and the schnitzel. Pretzels were pretty good although a bigger fan of the pancaes and homemade apple sauce as an appetizer. Real size beer at .5L is an added bonus. Looking forward to another stop here this...trip and with both of us being very selective in culinary choices this place checks all the boxes -- food, price, ambiance and makes me wish I was back in Bavaria.More

Very unassuming appearance from outside but once inside you are transported to a German "family " restaurant. Excellent food, Caring service, great choices of German beer. Go once, you will return again

I don't know. I checked their website but they had no info about this. I suggest you call Peter (the owner). I am sure he will accommodate your request. He and his staff are very willing to help with special requests.
