We found this place when we were exploring the streets of Puerto Vallarta. Came back to have Lunch and what a surprise!!! I was born and raised in Germany and I will tell you the food was as good as a restaurant in Germany. Our...waiter was Carlos and he was fantastic. Nice to talk to and very attentive. We actually went back a couple of days later and had more of the great food and beer. Carlos was there again nice as ever and Jose was the other waiter just as nice as Carlos. This will definitely be one of our places to go when we are in Puerto Vallarta. Also if you are German and know what Schmalz is they serve it with fresh bread wow wow wow. I was in heaven.More

The waiter(s) took my drink away before I had finished it and brought my partner a drink he didn't order. Then gave us an attitude when we refused the new drink. The food was disappointingly bland. The sauerkraut was just plain terrible, as were the...sausages. This restaurant is too expensive for such low-rate German food.More

Food and service is okay. Some of the meats were a little dry and the outdoor patio furniture is cheap looking. I could look past all that but for the prices that they charge, the fact that they don't take credit cards is ridiculous (especially...given that they are part of a hotel). When I told them I didn't have cash and would bring it tomorrow they made a big scene and made my partner walk back to the hotel to get cash instead of going to the hotel lobby and running the credit card there. Never again will I visit this place.More

Our recent two-week holiday in downtown Puerto Vallarta included a bunch of great Mexican meals, as is usual when we’re there. This time, some friends introduced us to the Hacienda Alemana, which was a very pleasant change in PV dining. We enjoyed it so much...that we returned alone a second time. The menu of largely German dishes has good variety at reasonable prices, with a good selection of wine and beer; some beer types on tap. The meal starts with fresh bread, butter and liver pate on the house. A bowl of red cabbage was also supplied. We both ordered bratwurst with sauerkraut and spatzle for our first meal; large portions and excellent! When we returned we decided to share a dinner (that option was on the menu for a small extra fee), and chose the smoked pork chops. Another great meal, and plenty for a pair of seniors. Well done Michael and staff, keep up the great service!More

The restaurant at this B&B has a German flavor, with bratwurst, red cabbage, schnitzel, etc. Weekend BBQ includes sausages and ribs grilled right in the patio. Nice selection of beers, including a German-style craft beer brewed locally.

Having tried many german restaurants in my travelling, many times it is a disappointing expierience. This was not the case at this restaurant. We have been gladly surprised by genuin german dishes, a good selection of german beers (of course, you can have also mexican...beer). Parking the car on the street near the restaurant was easy, though it might not be the same at high season. Prices are very reasonable and over all a place highly recommendable.More

We are long-time customers of this place. In all honesty, the food is excellent - German, and a great break from Mexican. But tonight they totally did us badly wrong. I am posting this in 5 stars, because nobody reads 1 star reviews, where it...belongs. We were having lunch two weeks ago and reserved a table for Valentines Day. I asked the owner - Mike - what the corkage would be. We are wine lovers and wanted to bring a special wine for a special occasion. He said 200 pesos, "if he was in a good mood". Totally reasonable. But when the check came, it said the charge was 510 pesos. I questioned the charge, pointing out that Mike had said 200 pesos. His daughter Tatiana and his wife Irma (I said we had been coming here for some time!) both said too bad - it's 510 pesos. Essentially "tough". We do not care what (owner) Mike said. That is just wrong. Dishonest treatment of customers - essentially a "bait and switch" is no way to treat especially long-time customers. We are so upset by this mistreatment that we will not be back.More

Once again, on one of our yearly trips to Puerto Vallarta, we made a regular stop for dinner at Hacienda Alemana and as always we were treated with such care and service, to say nothing of the always consistent quality of the food. Great beers,...naturally and such a range of imported and national brands. Yes, we always go and will continue, we cannot recommend this place highly enough.More

We escaped the subzero temperatures of Alaska for 9 nights. Our stay at Hacienda Alamana was beyond description and could not have had a better experience. Upon arrival, our host Tatiana greeted us and got us checked in. The room was spacious, the courtyard and...pool were beautiful and the restaurant and hotel were easily within walking distance right down the street from the beach. Breakfast is included in the room rate. Each morning, we were provided with a yummy fresh fruit and yogurt salad in addition to an amazing dish that varied each day. One day it was traditional Mexican, the next, German. Tatiana and her staff are welcoming and very knowledgeable about the surrounding area. They were more than happy to provide any tips and suggestions for dinner or day trips. I highly recommend this property and most definitely would stay again on my next trip to PV.More
