So disappointed. I’ve actually been to this place 4 times in the last year—primarily for lunch. Only once have I had a good meal. I kept returning though, as I thought my bad experiences were exceptions, rather than the rule. Most recently went with a...group of 8 for supper. I had schnitzel which was so overcooked it was close to inedible. Others had a variety of items, including prime rib, schnitzel, and some sort of sausage. Only one person had a meal they enjoyed. Limited places to go out for a meal in our area, but I know this is a place I won’t ever consider going again. What a shame. Service was good though, and atmosphere cozy. It could be so much more.More

We we there for a family birthday.4 of us ordered the hunter schnitzel.The schnitzel was over done.Normally you should be able to cut with a fork,mine was very tough.The mushroom cream sauce looked pastey,and very tasteless.They must of made it the day before.Usually a mushroom...cream sauce is velvety and made with real cream and fresh mushrooms,not this.The potatoes were way over done. Not worth the $30 we paid.Someone else had the prime rib 3 course with salad and sticky toffee pudding for $45 .The meat was not seasoned and it wasn`t tender.Very disappointed. The sticky toffee pudding was very good.The service was very good,our waitress was attentive,but we won`t be back unless they get a better chef.More

The pork hock with red cabbage and mashed potatoes was excellent. However the price increase is way out of line. Apr 4/23 pork hock $28, May 15/24 pork hock $38. Apr 4/23 half duck $30, May 15/24 half duck $40. Have been going to this...restaurant for over 25 years from West Kelowna. Also no more pre meal fresh bread and butter, as in the past.More

it was not the experience i was told. quite disappointed in what was served to us as what was supposed to be a a great German meal. It was far from it. the schnitzel was over cooked and the supposed cream sauce had absolutely no...flavor. There dessert was flavorless as well and not worth the calories. The cook whom was here before left for better things. To bad I was not here then. This was not worth the effort.More

Went for Thursday night schnitzel special. Mine was large but very thin and mostly crispy breading. The potatoes were over cooked and mushy. The service was adequate, but the large group nearby was extremely noisy, making the whole experience very unpleasant. Have always enjoyed our...past visits, but will have to think twice about returningMore

Lovely atmosphere , cozy. However with cozy apparently comes dust! Every chair in the place was dusty. One of us had green salad with chicken breast. Very good. Another of us had goulash (like her dad used to make) and sweet potato fries. Very enjoyable....I ordered the beet salad. Which I have to say is misnamed. Huge green salad with 8 thin slices of beet on the bottom. When I told the waitress I was disappointed she said she would “pass on my comments” oh ok? I proceeded to move all the greens to another plate and I ate the beets and chicken breast which were just fine. Perhaps 15 minutes after eating I had to rush to the bathroom. I had horrible diarrhea. I thought perhaps I drank too much coffee. My friend asked if she could take the huge pile of greens home for her dinner and I said “of course”. She contacted me later that night and told me she has eaten the greens and at the bottom of the pile (unbeknownst to any of us) there was rotting slimy greens. She was also immediately very ill. I asked her if she could take a picture however she was so disgusted she threw everything out immediately without thinking. If you order salad ask questions read the description carefully and please check the greens all the way to the bottom. Your bottom will thank you!More

I hadn't been to "schnitzel night" for 5 years and was anxious to return. The meal was delicious but it was disappointing it was no longer buffet and didn't have all the choices they once offered. I love a pub atmosphere and The Gausthaus certainly...doesn't disappoint. The price has gone up but in today's world that is to be expected. I live in Saskatchewan and will return whenever I am in that area.More

Been going there occasionally was always excellent under previous ownership although being the same basic menue it's not as authentic red cabbage was too spicy to eat,the pork hock was overbaked and the otherwise crunchy crust was so dried up hard it could not be...eaten then it was to come with dumplings but instead they smashed up a baked potatoes to make it look like mashed potatoes it was not consumable in both taste and looks just want to mention I served a 3 year cooks apprenticeship in Germany when I was 16 and I know what I am talking about . Was told they had a supplier problem with the dumpling mix albeit we made dumplings from raw and cooked potatoes besides we should have been made aware of that before we ordered sorry no excuses a review of a ex German chefMore

We were astonished that on a Saturday night in Peachland at the height of the summer tourism season, by 8.15?pm every single restaurant was no longer accepting diners - except Gasthaus. Thank goodness it was (a) open; and (b) served pretty good food. We had...burgers and salads, all of good quality, and enjoyed their outdoor patio seating. They have a very wide selection of wine and beer on tap, including local BC and European options. Thank you to our server Michelle for her excellent hosting.More

I think they sold it. One of them was sick or passed away. Or one of the owners was.
