Had a wonderful dinner at Kraut's with my Mother. I had the traditional pork schnitzel served with potato salad ( my mouth still waters when I remember the flavours which all complement one another so well). Although thoroughly satisfied with the flavour and size of my meal, I had a little space to help my Mum with the extra special Pork Hock and its lovely crackling and plum sauce and sauerkraut. So delicious! The service was very friendly and attentive and we thoroughly enjoyed our celebration meal (and the carefully packaged leftovers at home the next day). Ambience in the new location is just lovely and parking is so convenient. Can wholeheartedly reccommend this as a gourmet dining experience with fabulous hosts.

Had a group meal at Krauts. Great new premises, same great food.
Had the Pork Hock, it was huge and yummy, I am a big eater and for the first time ever in a restaurant couldn't finish my meal.
Great service and team work, really enjoyed the casual atmosphere but still with superb attention.

Thank you igota29er for your great review. It was a pleasure to host your group. We are happy that you enjoy the new design and yes, some of our huge pork shanks can be challenging :-)

Sorry for the delay in posting this review, but holiday
travels intervened! We ate at Krauts on 15 November with my husband's elderly parents. The food was lovely, good sized portions, nicely presented, great service -- and excellent value! The spaetzle were so yummy! Nice to see schnitzel properly thin and pounded, not at all tough -- pork or chicken as the choices (no veal, alas!) The sauces were lovely, and I particularly recommend the Jager schnizel in an excellent creamy sauce. But the hit of the evening was my father in laws pork shank; a good bit more expensive, but delicious, juicy and so tender --and the leftovers were taken home and served cold the next day! We had visited this place a few years ago in their previous location; the new restaurant is much more modern and "urban", although I did like the rustic feel of the other place as well. Keep up the good work! This is a must-try in Nelson.

I are here when they were based out of town a bit and was impressed. Back again and better than ever. Do yourself a favour and eat here (make sure you come with an empty stomach)!
