“Not your average neighbourhood schnitzel”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

I confess to not being a schnitzel addict. To me, some pan-fried breaded veal on a fresh bun is as fine to me. However, this restaurant opened my eyes to the possibilities of how good schnitzel can be. We secured a last minute reservation for an ad-hoc birthday dinner for some German relatives and were not disappointed. While we were going to have an appetizer, a look at the size of the dinners changed our minds. We each ordered a different schnitzel - a plain old weiner schnitzel; a schnitzel cordon blue with shrimp and bernaise sauce; a schnitzel champignon; and a schnitzel and bratwurst. The schnitzels were huge (almost half the large serving plate) while the cordon blue was only slightly smaller. My German relative said the bratwurst was among the best he had tasted. All the plates came with some lightly-grilled potatoes, a couple of pieces of brocolli and cauliflower and homemade red cabbage. Although the potatoes were ordinary in style and taste, the cabbage was excellent. Our food came hot and fast. The only disappointment my co-diners expressed was not having enough room for dessert due to the size of the meals. Can't recommend anything from that menu although the homemade Black Forest Cake caught the eye of my wife. Next time perhaps. The seating is cozy but not intimate but don't this seems like a place frequented by regulars who enjoy good food and "healthy" portions.

Tips: 1) Make a reservation. It is popular. 2) They have Schnitzel Wednesdays where some popular schnitzels are half-price. Good value but, again, make a reservation.

“NOT LIVING UP TO IS REPUTATION”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

Four of us went to the Old Bavaria Haus and were unexpectedly very disappointed in not only the service, but the food. It took close to an hour for our meals to arrive and when they did, some of the food was cold, the schnitzels were tough and there was little flavour except for the cabbage. The waiter wasn't very concerned and when it came time for dessert, he just threw the cutlery in a pile on the table for us to sort. They said dessert was home made, but it tasted like it was processed from a grocery store. I had been there years ago and the food was fantastic, but it's really failing its reputation and we all will think twice about going again. There are a lot of other restaurant choices. On a good note, it was very clean and the menu had a lot of variety and selection.

“Worth while carnivorous dining experience.”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

Good food, plentiful and tasty. Our group of 6 was well treated, the waiter was humorous, attendant and upbeat despite the crowded conditions and busy time. My friend was doubtful about the Caesar salad included in the special but said afterwards it was the best she'd ever had...and she offered no bites to any of us, practically licking the plate clean!

“Jawohl”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Very good selection of schnitzel, the Schinitzel Charlotte is especially good though it should come with more than just one scallop given the price. The cabbage is very tastey and the veggies are done just right, not to soft or too salty. The ambience is perfectly Bavarian....Jawohl!
