My husband and I went for lunch. The service was very good and the food was authentic. Better then most German restaurants in foreign countries.

This place is sub-par. Menu does not properly list ingredients for the meal. No pizza available when we came. Not worth even trying.

When I first heard of this place, I was all excited because I love German food. From my experience, it was nothing like I was used to. I tried a couple of different breads they had (not a big selection).

This is the second German Bakery we saw on our CR holiday. We had to stop and have a look. We found Bretzels and had to buy some for our lunch. Lots of other German pasteries available. Had quite a bit of German atmosphere.

I was heading to a meeting and wanted to bring something along for the coffee break. The lady who was helping with my order had a terrible attitude, not eager to answer my questions. I bought a cheesecake (I had my doubts before buying it,...I was right to have my doubts!), two “cookies” (coconuts and nuts) and the driest, stiffest chocolate doughnut I’ve ever tasted 🥴 This bakery is not cheap so I expected better quality on their products and better attention from the staff. The products seem to have been there for a while!!More

Stoped before my flight back. Ham smelled like fish and tasted really gross all was really salty. The staff was nice but the food was bad. Very pricey also for a coffee and breakfast.

We stopped for lunch on our way to the airport, which is just up the road. Had a good, hearty breakfast and pretty good cappuccinos. The local kitty was cute but a little bitey. This place has a sense of humor--the women's bathroom door says..."bla bla bla bla bla" all over it, while the men's has one single "bla." :-)More

We bought their "Tres nueces" bread which had a list of ingredients but no mention of peanuts. Trusting that the list of ingredients would actually list all of the ingredients, my son who is allergic to peanuts ate from that bread. Then his body went...into anaphylactic shock. We rushed him to the emergency room, cancelled our trip to the volcano and spent it instead at the hospital. We called Panaderia Alemana and found out that they put peanuts in the bread mix. I asked to speak to the owner about the seriousness of adding ingredients beyond what they state in the label. To our disbelief, instead of the customary minimum of an apology an any attempt to make up for the trouble and/or assurance of taking precautionary steps, all I got was an insult! He told me how stupid of me for letting my child eat a bread called TRES NUECES if he is allergic to peanuts! For the record, "nueces" were not listed in the ingredients list. Secondly, "nueces" are "walnuts"; peanuts are "mani" OR "cacahuates" in English. Thirdly, while sometimes the word "nueces" is used generically to mean "tree nuts"- PEANUTS ARE NOT TREE NUTS- they are LEGUMES. If this had happened in the USA it would had made it to national news, the FDA would have slapped them with a stiff fine, and they would have become a party to a major lawsuit. But not in Costa Rica. So all I can do is tell others so no one has to die before food allergy labeling precautions are also taken seriously like they are in the USA. My son survived this incident, but someone else may not.More
