After my last visit I had to write a review. This place is so charming, reminds me of a local neighborhood restaurant in Bavaria. I had the Kasseler (Pork Chop) for dinner, I can honestly say it was the best pork chop I've ever eaten. Service was good and attentive. I also liked the fact that we never got the... More

This was my first German restaurant ever, so I may not be the best person to review the food, but I can comment on beer and it was freaking awesome. The staff is very courteous though the service could be a little faster.

I lived in Bavaria for over a decade, and have eaten in restaurants all over Germany. This is very authentic fare. It comes closest to the food I had in Würzburg. The proprietors are very nice, approachable people, and my group had a blast chatting with them for quite some time. The service is also authentic, which means slow and... More

The decor is a bit dated and has that old world feel a little bit, seems to be a small family operated business, as most of the staff are elderly, but very friendly and will take the time to explain anything if asked. Service is a little slower then most other places in Downtown Sunnyvale area, but the atmosphere is... More

First their website is out of date. It says they are opened from 11:00 AM to 9:00 PM. We arrived for an early dinner for my birthday at 4:20 PM and the doors were locked! We tried to call and only got an answering machine that said to leave a message. We came back at 5:00 PM and they were... More

The only people who give a bad wrap about this restaurant complain about the service. All I have to say is chill. This is how a mom & pop restaurant operates. Leave the Yelp-crowd's nutty pace and over-the-top demands of the Bay Area outside the door and absorb a simpler more peaceful way that things can go. You can't beat... More

Had a craving for German food recently and, knowing there are few options in the Palo Alto area, did a quick search and found Hardy's Bavaria on Trip Advisor. Made the trip to Sunnyvale and was not disappointed. Potato and cabbage soup, Nurenberger wurst, sour kraut and mashed potatoes with gravy. Excellent German beer selection -- a pleasant change from... More

I think the world needs more German Restaurants. Great beer, really awesome warm octogenarian waitstaff (I kid you not), not the best German food I've had but meeting the requirements of the genre, comfortable atmosphere. Good deserts, as if you need them. Very satisfying, all in all, for those who want a little of simpler times. May it long thrive.

A good place to go if you crave German food and German Beer. They have a good selection of German and Austrian beer. This is a small place and run by several old ladies so if you want to be served promptly, get there when it opens, otherwise service could be slow. The restaurant is conveniently adjacent to a large... More

Good German restaurants excel at beer, meat and spatsela. This one had good potato soup for starters, then a basic salad. My wife had the lamb and I had the ham special. Both were very good. My serving could have fed several people. It was an enormous portion. Some portions need the outside were a little dried out but there... More
