Pretending to be a German restaurant and failing badly- except for the décor. The food was terrible, the service so-so and the waiter spoke neither English nor German.

We were walking by and just stopped in. Service was okay and the meal was good. German food that we enjoy.

When you tire of the best steaks in the World, give ABC a try. We were there a couple of visits back and really enjoyed the place. Great decor, friendly, helpful staff, and exellent food. A good size menu. Very convenient location.

The German-style cottage on the less busy part of Laval street is amazing. It is nice and clean and you will enjoy the food, provided you are not a German. The menu sounds German. Unfortunately, however, the cook forgot about the seasoning and the exact preparation.

This is an old traditional restaurant. There is nothing special about it, but the prices are reasonable and food is good.

In former days a truly German restaurant in BA city centre, where I became acquainted and enjoyed many a delicious meal. Years have gone by, lack of lustre shows, owners seem to have changed, and the food, to my taste, has lost its Teutonic delights. Prices, as well, have increased to a point where they quite surpass the quality of... More

This restaurant hasn't changed at all in the last 40 years. Here you find very traditional dishes. The food is tasty but on the heavy side.

Stopped in for lunch and was slightly disappointed with the quality to price ratio. Food arrived quickly, was hot and filling, however it was not the quality we had hoped for at such an establishment. Also we were charged a 36 peso service fee for basic table service...which is not normal from what I've heard or experienced.

Found by accident 15 years ago. Just as good today. You will have to visit German to replicate the food experience
