I would highly recommend this wonderful restaurant and meet the staff for dinner. Roz is the best in the business there and is a person who cares for everyone she meets. Ask for her and if she’s there, she will say hello

Went to lunch with colleagues. German Bratwurst was okay, however, cabbage soup was yummy! Decor is quite dated and could use a little brightening up. Server was pleasant. Prices could be a little more competitive or somehow include more value for the money.

Really, the best authentic German food we've had. My favourite is the Schnitzel with spaetzle. This restaurant has been around since the beginning of time and for a very good reason. It is consistently good.

The Schnitzel here never disappoints and it’s great value for your money. If you’ve ever been to Germany, this place will take you back. Go on an empty stomach 🙂

They’re is a small step on both entrance and exit but I would consider this easily managed. The washroom is accessible but I can’t say for sure about the toilet with bar. Absolutely call them, they’re very accommodating.

We went with a large group-most had a meat based order but some did have non meat dish. The salads were great and very well portioned. Everyone did rave about the schnitzel and spetzel.
