As an Austrian living in Canada, this is one of the best spots where you get real authentic German/Austrian/Hungarian food. It was a feast of deliciousness that you definitely need to try out. Will definitely go there again and try different kinds of Schnitzels :)

I wish I had heard about this place earlier. Over recent years we've had a lot of mediocre food in Cobourg - which is surprising, given that it's an upmarket town and something of a tourist destination as well. But the Matterhorn has been there...More
