Popped into this little place on the drive home from Toronto to Ottawa. Three of us, two adults, one 11-year old boy. Stopped in around 3PM. We all had chicken or pork schnitzel, with spaetzle, and strudel for dessert. The server was very kind and engaging. Clearly knew his stuff and loves working there. The food was outstanding. The location... More

I've been to numerous Eastern European restaurants over the years , but these guys really nailed it . From the decor to the food ,to the czech beers and liqueurs. Tender schnitzel, great soup and strudel to finish , all of which is made before your eyes by the owners in an open concept kitchen. Our waiter was very prompt... More

One of the top restaurants in Gananoque. Great food and friendly service. We've gone just the two of us and we've also taken our toddler- great family atmosphere. Mmmm could go for some spätzle right now 😊

Thank you for taking the time to share your review, and I'm sorry you had such a horrible experience. Can you tell me exactly when you visited us ? We have been here for 28 years now, and are only open seasonally, very rarely do we receive reviews of this nature, so it would be great to know so I... More

My husband and I made a special stop to try this restaurant on our mini-vacation in Ontario. We are so glad we did. The restaurant layout was cozy, but not cramped, with thick wood tables and older decor that reminded my husband of his Oma's home in Germany. Overall the food was both hearty and authentic. A great choice for... More

Went here for dinner early on a Saturday night. Service was quick, friendly and efficient. Place was clean and well maintained. Borsch soup was really enjoyable. Schnitzels arrived and they were cooked perfectly and were delicious. One of us had the home fries - OK at best, kinda bland. The other had the spaetzle which weren't fried as crispy as... More

We were a group of 7 for lunch. We did have reservations so there was no issue with the table. Service was excellent. Server always checking to see if we needed anything. Everyone enjoyed the meals. They offered a brunch or regular menu. I did take a peek at the dinner menu on the back, seems very expensive but lunch... More
