“Manager extremely rude.”
Reviewed April 23, 2014

Within moments of arriving the manager let loose with a tirade. I was not even sure what I had done to set her off. She continued to be rude through our whole time there. I felt sorry for the wait staff as well. First german I haven't liked.

“Welcomed just like Family”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

We have been here several times and always feel so warmly welcomed. They have a great menu,
always producing terrific food which we always enjoy with the good German beers and wide selection of wines. What a terrific view overlooking the fantastic Glasshouse Mountains right out to the ocean on a clear evening. The service and hospitality are just right, not overwhelming but always like you are part of the family. Klaus and Barbara are the perfect hosts.

“Happy Friendly atmosphere...and great hospitality and food”
Reviewed April 10, 2014

This was our first time to this German restaurant, a gift from our son. We felt we had gone to Germany. People in German outfits and speaking in German. The decor was very German and the view, as we sat out on the deck was fabulous, overlooking the Glasshouse Mountains and down to the sea. A fire in the distance was the only distraction to a perfect view. There was an awesome array of German beers available, of which we sampled a couple. Meals and desserts were traditional German and were delicious. Barbara and her staff were amazing. So nice to hear those accents...and then them speaking to each other in German. An overall excellent experience.
