This nationally acclaimed restaurant is nestled in a century old home that has been transformed into one of the lower mainland's most popular eating establishments. Enjoy first class European cuisine served with flare, style and pride.
First off, to the Dinehere staff. Bavarian food should be classified as "German" food, not "Eastern European" food. Bavaria is not in Eastern Europe, and never has been. Please reclassify if possible.
We ran into this restaurant during our excursion to New West. It was only 5:30 pm and it was already full. Though we had no reservation, the hostess has managed to give us a very nice table.
The waitress was very friendly, prompt and attentive. The food came very quickly. The schnitzel was very tasty, and my German girlfriend, who was very picky about German food, was impressed. The vegetables were cooked exactly as it should, and the German beer on draught was delicious and very reasonably priced.
This is a real authentic German restaurant that can easily rival some restaurants in Germany itself.
For anyone who enjoys schnitzel, this is the place! I had the schnitzel champignon (bearnaise sauce and mushrooms) and my husband, the black forest schnitzel (with oyster and shiitake mushrooms). The schnitzel was tender, tasty and cooked to perfection. The schnitzel platters comes with sauteed vegetables, roasted potatoes, and red cabbage. We finished off our meal with the black forest cake dessert, delicious indeed. We will definitely come back for the Schnitzel Wednesdays specials for $9.99.
For those BFC cake fans, check out their website for the recipe!
I gave only 4 stars for food and overall because we did not have appetizers or dessert...otherwise I would give our entrees 5 stars. The waitress was outstanding. The schnitzel was excellent, the vegetables cooked to perfection..the gravy perfect. The rouladen was a nice surprise. We will go back.
I gotta start the review off by saying that this Bavarian Alps style home is cool and the decor inside is awesome. It keeps it real. I think that I would like this place better if I actually liked German food, but I'm not a big fan of sauerkraut, schnitzel, or sausage. However, if you like German food, you'll probably like this place.
Probably best German in GV. Both quality and quantity is solid. Well prepared schnitzel and various other German dishes.
While, this place is usually busy, service staff are quite attentive and friendly.
Food, service and ambiance are well balanced for satisfying experience.
My husband and I went here for dinner on a Saturday night. We called ahead to see if we should make a reservation, and it was recommended, so we did. When we got there at 8:00 pm (on the nose, at our reserved time), another couple walked in just ahead of us, announced that they'd had a reservation for 7:30 pm. We told the hostess we were reserved for 8:00, but the other couple was seated ahead of us. That was the first problem we encountered.
After waiting ten minutes for our table, we waited ten more minutes at our table before our drink orders were taken. The other couple were already drinking and ordering by this time. My husband and I wondered if we'd make it to the show we were planning to see.
The food wasn't bad. I mean, it was edible. Maybe German cuisine just isn't right for us, but we found it to be heavy, salty and overdone. Plus the food also took a long time. The garlic bread was kind of crap. It was a good thing we were hungry.
At the end of the meal, we asked for the bill, and handed over our coupon (we are Entertainment Book people, and find this is a great way to discover new restaurants). The server returned and hadn't taken off our discount. More waiting.
Anyway, like I said, the food was okay, and it was busy, but the service was still pretty slow (our waitress walked past us a number of times before even saying she'd be right with us), and the food was not our "cup of tea" so I kind of doubt we'll go back.
you can't go wrong dining there on a wednesday where the schnitzels are $10. the portions are generous and the flavours are spot on, i feel like i am back in europe as far as decor is concerned, the crowd is mostly older and european. i also like that, they have free german newspaper there. make reservations on wednesday evenings as they tend to get quite busy.
Six of us had dinner here recently, (we have had dinner here a few times over the years). We all found it very nice that we could eat and visit without having to scream at each other over loud music! The food, as always was awesome! Coming from a German food, I have to say that in my opinion the food here is equally as good as the good old home German cooking I grew up with!
Service has always been great as is the decore! The only change I would like to see is the staff wearing authentic German outfits. This would greatly compliment the decore. The old standard white blouse/black pants just does not seem to work in this enviroment.
I came here a couple days ago, and I loved it. The food was very great and the service was about average. The appetizer I had was the potato cake, which was absolutely delicious. The schnitzel I had for the entree was very tasty and I also liked the food around the it. The dessert afterwards was also very good and after the meal, you would tell yourself, " Wow, that was a nice meal". After saying all that, I would love to come back here once in a while for a good family dinner.
I always enjoy coming for dinner here. The food is good and the atmosphere is always pleasant. We normally come in a large group and have a lot of fun. The schnitzel is delicious. The portions are generous.
Wow, I had the pleasure of dining here last night and I left VERY full and super impressed. Great food. I had the Cordon Bleu Schnitzel and very yummy Caesar Salad and found both to be just perfect. The prices are very reasonable and the portions are HUGE.
I will return again for sure A++++++
