Owner brought pretzels over as soon as we sat(without us asking) and told us that we should try the bitterballs. Being polite we said okay. Appetisers were okay But we were charged for the pretzels? Who does that? 40$ schnitzel was okay too but I can get the same quality for half the price at my favourite pub. Go to... More

I went back after several years to the nwly renovated place. The menu is still very good and the wine list exotic as always. Did miss the owners' presence as they really add some zest to the place - otherwise service is rather clinical.

We are not fine diners or hard to please but this place was a real let down. Where to start... After managing to manoeuvre into the window sill table for two we were crammed into, we set about ordering drinks. My wife ordered the Mango Daiquiri featured as a special on the blackboard and I ordered a beer. The lady... More

Appalling behaviour, food and cost! A night to remember as how not to treat your employees. The waitress was new. She had worked there for two hours. She was ignored by the owner, who treated her with disdain and contempt. She tried, she sort advise and was brushed aside, she walked out. I applaud her courage and with other diners... More

Crows Nest institution - the owners are great characters and this just adds to the quirky restaurant The decor is much lighter since the rebuilding but it's the same great place. The food was incredibly good, we had appetisers of croquettes, warm salty pretzels with butter, then entrees- oysters kilpatrick and the calf liver special (rich and delicious) then Weiner... More

Stuyvesant house is a restaurant, which we visit time to time when we want to have some excellent German food. After the fire and the renovation, everything looks fresh and beautiful. We went to have lunch and Max didn’t disappoint us again. He recommended the pork knuckle, freshly from the oven, and I had my first pork knuckle in my... More

We went for lunch. We asked, in addition to food menus, for a wine list. We were then handed a folder the size of the old A-K White Pages phone book with the clear implication "You don't select the wine here, we recommend it to you". We were fine with that except when the bill came, the bottle of very... More

Nice tasty German food, A good place for a solid meal. The port knuckle is huge and the side dishes were delicious. The beers are awesome and we were lucky enough to have a tour of the cellar... OMG! Wow! Rudi & Max are great hosts once you understand their sense of humour.

The food is very good, specially the traditional German meals, the wine list is only limited by your budget, however, the service can sharpen up.

We went there with a group of 6 friends from work. I'd never been before and it was a great time. Rudi and Max provided great service and we just felt like a couple of mates. great traditional food and the wine selection was amazing! We even were allowed to have a drink in the cellar, fantastic.
