Description: We are located in La Cruz, just 15 minutes north of Puerto Vallarta and are a family-friendly restaurant offering a full-bar and a modern German menu emphasizing on freshness and quality. German cuisine means so much more these days than just sausage, sauerkraut and beer. Rather it reflects today's Germany with its distinctive medley of modernity and tradition. The restaurants menu embodies this fusion of old and new with a fresh, modern twist to traditional meals for you to enjoy. Passionate about food, the Proprietors cook from their hearts and consider the restaurant an extension of their home. Each guest is treated as an invited guest to be impressed with the ambiance, service and most importantly a wonderful, memorable meal. We hope you enjoy discovering more about this increasingly popular cuisine as you journey through their menu of foods and beverages from modern Germany.

Looking for a fuller bodied ale and good German style food? You will be delighted then to visit The Black Forest. Really? Am I telling you to leave your cozy Mexican getaway and hop the next plane to Deutschland? Nope, I am talking about this great restaurant in La Cruz.

The Black Forest is the creation of Peter and Yvonne Demetz and Peter’s sister Andrea Küffner, with husband Chef Winfried. They are a family owned and operated restaurant that has proudly served the Banderas Bay community since 1998. Looking at the tudor style around the outside of the building, and all the decor around the inside, complete with his and hers gnomes that guard their respective bathroom doors, this place gives the feeling of Germany’s black forest. If that wasn’t enough to get you in the mood, wait till you taste the food. They have lots of authentic German food waiting to indulge your senses, some great German brews in 1/2 liter bottles for you to wash it all down with, and some incredibly yummy deserts to finish it off.

Peter does computer work on the side, which is why we headed over there (since I’m a computer guy myself), and Yvonne is quite knowledgeable about the region as well open to share her experiences as an expat to Mexico and gave us lots of great information.

They love to share the German culture with their guests and you really get a nice warm family vibe from them. I missed Oktoberfest this year, but this place made up for it.

They often have live music and just opened a website as well, where you can reserve a table online. You can find them at all the usual social network places like twitter, foursquare, facebook, and tripadvisor, as well http://www.blackforestpv.com/

They are open Sunday to Friday, 5:00 pm – 10:00 pm, closed on Saturdays.

Their address is Marlin No. 16, La Cruz de Huanacaxtle 63734 Nayarit, Mexico.

You may also phone (329) 295 – 5203. Wearing lederhosen is optional.

I arranged for a 70th birthday dinner for my husband with Andrea at The Black Forest. His favorite dish is goulash and they make a great one. Andrea offered a 3 course dinner complete with their incredible Black Forest chocolate cake. Everyone in our party enjoyed choosing from 3 starters, 3 entrees, and then dessert. Service was wonderful and we truly felt like we were dining with family. A special menu was even printed for our group! I would highly recommend The Black Forest to everyone!!!!!!!!

Can't get any more authentic than the Black Forest! Staff speak and serve real German culture. Imported beers and delicious schnitzel, spatzel and red cabbage, the Black Forest offers a change from the surrounding cuisine.

If you love German food, this is the place to go. The service is exceptional, the owners are friendly and the food is fresh and tasty. The portions are large, always some left over to enjoy the next day. Excellent selection of beer and wine to choose from. Clean restaurant, great atmosphere, nicely decorated for Christmas. You will want to go back again and again !
