Grim food, lousy ambience. Honestly - crap. Doesn't deserve to be restaurant. I can't say much more only that it wasn't even hone kitchen quality.

Best German food I've ever had. Tried a bunch of different German beers which we loved! I got bratwurst and my wife got beef stew which we both loved! And of course apple strudel! Definitely a place to go back to. Would deff recommend to anyone that's in the area. Staff and owner are extremely friendly!

Service was top rate from the owner, a very, very nice German lady. We... More

We were surprised to find a German restaurant in St Maarten. The service was friendly and the food was quite good. We both enjoyed the schnitzel with spaetzle and red cabbage. And a good bottle of German beer completed the meal. It's not a fancy place, but the food is well worth a visit.

Wow! Just wow! Thats really all I can really say about this amazing restaurant. As a 16 year old from Chicago I don't eat a lot of german food so I was a little nervous about this place at first, but I can easily say it was simply the best.
