And such good service!! Had a very nice night with a friend of mine at this restaurant. Someone recommended it to us, and we were not disappointed! Big portions of deliciousness and it certainly both taste and feels like home, with a very personal atmosphere. If you go, you should try their passion fruit mojitos as well. Yumm!!

Very friendly owner, nice atmosphere. I ate pasta carbonara and it was good! Bacon could have been a little more crispy to my taste. But higly recommend!

In an easy and friendly atmosphere, you can eat a good food. Nothing special, honestly, just to have a break from the thai food. The menu consists in some german dishes and some crazy receips ( italian ragu style with chicken???) The general atmosphere and taste sounds to be in a home kitchen!

Simple surroundings and delicious home style dishes. Big portions and a warm welcome by the German owner makes a refreshing change from the hectic hustle found in some of the other restaurants in the area.

This restaurant is a little walk outside of the village but it's worth the trip. We told the owners she needed to get a big sign or arrow nearby as it's quite hard to find but definitely put in the extra effort required to find it. The food selection is diverse but you can also get the usual Thai food... More

We decided not to eat here, because of the very limited menu. After a drink we left and had our diner in an other restaurant. During our short stay we saw many people order take-away food. I assume that's the core business instead of providing a wide range of menu's.

The food, good old German food, was on par to what I expected. However, this place is wrongfully ranked #1 on Trip Advisor and definitely does not deserve to even be considered among the decent places on Koh Tao. The staff is very rude, the pricing is both expensive for what they eat and they change the price with a... More

I liked the environment, such a cozy place to dine in. I am not a person who like fried stuff, however I had ordered their famous schnitzel as recommended by many in TripAdvisor. Quite a good one with generous portion. I almost finish the whole plate myself!

The first time we went, our table was given to the next couple who walked in. We made reservation for yesterday but we're not told that it was closed. It's not exactly a nearby walk to the place. Maybe the food is good but with this attitude, I will never return. There are plenty of other good places on the... More

After having read all the great reviews about this place on tripadvisor my girlfriend and I decided to give the place a go. When we arrived it was quite crowded. Nothing too suprising really as it is the number 1 ranked restaurant on the island (so it seems). Our experience was - to say the least - a little different... More
