“Germany in Hawaii”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2014 via mobile

Had great schnitzel washed down by 7.6% genuine German beer all delivered by a cheerful Brigid and her helper. Who cares that it is in an industrial area, it is warm and comfortable inside.

“A better restaurant than the location would suggest.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2014

But for other TA reviews I would not have found this place or have tried it. It is an excellent resource if you need a fix of Swiss-German cuisine but is limited by its location and small premises. It seats about 18-20 inside with perhaps room for 8-10 on the modest patio. It appears to have a loyal following of regulars and does not depend on the tourist trade but seems deserving of some support in that regard. Think of going at off-peak times or have a reservation. Our server, Terry, was very helpful with menu advice.

“Authentic German Food-judged by a German!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2014

This random find made our day! Authentic German Food in a random location close to Kahului airport in an industrial area. The food was great, fresh, authentic, very reasonably priced. Brigit spricht Deutsch!!! (Und ihre Kinder auch). We are in the patio, which was Ur-gemuetlich, Bier-Zelt-Chic!
We will definitely be back next time we are on Maui!
Come here with your family before heading to the airport or on the way back from the "road to Hanna" to meet locals from Maui and Germany alike and enjoy great food in unassuming, relaxed environment!
