“Perfection Every time we Visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2014 via mobile

We have been visiting this wonderful restaurant for around ten years now and its time to add a review. The restaurant has a beautiful view of the glass house mountains and feels like a cozy mountain lodge. When it comes to the food we always have the pretzels along with the most beautiful Bavarian cream potato & smoked sausage soup. We have tried everything on the menu over the years and its always perfect. The consistancy of the food is always the same, I have never been disapointed, whether its a starter, main or the desserts The drinks menu has a great range of German beers. Barbara & Klaus have always provided wonderful friendly service. We feel like family now every time we visit. We would to thank Barbara & Klaus for having such a wonderful restaurant in a beautiful part of the world.

“One of our best dining experiences”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2014

A great dining experience. A view over the Glasshouse Mountains from the balcony to kill for. Friendly staff, great service and fine food. We thoroughly enjoyed lunch...the menu was large enough to include something for all tastes and included traditional German dishes with some imaginative adaptions. The portions more than satisfying and included a large beer and wine selection. We will be coming back.

“Manager extremely rude.”
1 of 5 bubbles 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”
4 of 5 bubbles 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.
