Husband and I went there and had the schnitzel and the special (not sure what the name was, but it was pulled chicken in mushroom sauce). I am not very familiar with German food, but I was really impressed. Not only was the food amazing, but also the place is really cute and the owner is a very nice lady!... More

It is really nice German food. The owner is a German lady who does most of the cooking herself. So if you are German, and want a break from the Thai food, jump in. It does have the "Taste of Home" like the sign says.

A small place with good food that you could easily miss beacause it doesn't look like much from a distance. We we're instantly helped to our seats and told about the food and their new drinks. The food was very good (we had the schnitzel and chicken ragu) and we got very good service. I recommend it!

Beautiful food, a quirky funny woman owns the place and makes all the food herself 'homemade'. A lovely experience outside the noise of the town. A must eat experience in koh tao

Dinner date one evening, really nice traditional German meal. I had the snitzel and garlic mash, portions are really big, The owner takes orders and she gives good advice, including to have the mousse, with the homemade kahlua. Reasonably priced, would highly recommend it to anyone on the rock.

For someone who lives on Koh Tao long term, this is a true gem! Beautiful Schnitzel, just the way you would expect to have it in Germany. Uschi, we'll be back for more - i want to try the Potato Salad :) The place itself is nothing spectacular, but the food is great!

It took me a little bit to find this gem, keep walking up the road it's down a bit on the left. It's worth the walk! If your trying to take a break from local Thai food, then this is your spot. It was excellent and the mashed potatoes made me feel like home. The owner was very friendly. I... More
