My family has been coming here for years for authentic European food.The schnitzel are to die for, the staff is very friendly, and the prices are very reasonable for the huge portions of food you get!! I suggest getting there a little early because they always have a lot of people in their waiting lounge. More...

This was our second visit since this Hamilton landmark restaurant changed hands. We were disappointed after our first visit and only returned because we attended a function. This time we were pleasantly surprised. The food was the quality we had loved from the past. It would be nice if they took reservations. We were a party of 14 and arrived early hoping they could put tables together but they would only accommodate us using two tables that were back to back and rather tight to get in and out. More...

Good food but Management needs to learn how to better deal with unhappy customers. While I was there last night, waiting to be seated an upset client came back with a takeout order that was wrong. Rather than apologizing and rectifying the problem, he got upset and made her feel even worst. He totally missed an opportunity to make him and the restaurant look good. So sad, especially since the restaurant isn't nearly as busy as it was under the last owners. More...

I have been going to this restaurant on and off for over forty years. I have ordered the same dish (Schnitzel Hollandia) every time I have visited and I’m never disappointed! The rye bread is delicious, the salad is fresh and crispy and the entree is delicious. The staff are always welcoming and friendly and the atmosphere is very quaint. Just talking about it makes me want to jump in the car and head to downtown Hamilton. More...

I have been there 2 times, and the food is really good! Very home style tasty, the service is very good too, the normal portions are very good size but the lunch special are pretty small, that is why I am giving only 4 stars also the menu doesn't have enough description so is difficult to choose.The rest is very good, the ambience is very much like tavern cozy and relax, with german style. We really enjoyed our visit and we will be coming back again and again soon! More...

I went with a friend on a Wednesday evening for dinner. The place was busy but there was a table available. We had the cutlet which came with a thick meatball soup. The dish had vegetables and potatoes with plenty of tasty gravy. The food was like home made by mom. The food was excellent and the service was good considering the fact that it was busy. We had a German beer each. The total bill was about $80. The place is nice and casual and close to parking. I would recommend this place and would go again. More...

An old restaurant that has kept Hamilton happy for decades. This spot has authentic German/Hungarian burst out from the interior style, to the uniform and of course the menu. The Schnitzel is the size of your face! If you're looking for great spaetzle as well, this is the spot. More...

Good attentive service, it has a rustic atmosphere. We ordered the Black Forest platter for 2, it came with a potato soup starter which I would give a 9 out of 10, the platter itself was a good mix of various foods. The foods i would rate at a 6 to 8 for taste perhaps a little on the bland side and I did use some mustards etc to give it some life however the frozen veggies were a lost cause Im sure something from no frills. The portion size however was a 10+ we have enough for a full lunch tom. The price was reasonable for the platter but the drink prices are on the high side. More...

Go about 6 times a year. Good food, uniforms are dated but it's a theme thing. Soups are always tremendous. We ate here last night - group of 4. We waited over an hour for a table, but it was so worth it! The schnitzel was cooked to perfection, and the potato soup was delish! Our waitress was very efficient! It is definitely worth the drive from Burlington - it’s one of our favourites! Still as good as ever! Will return soon!!! More...

The atmosphere not what it was 20 yrs ago. Taste and quality was there but, washrooms were a 3 at best, hostess a 2 which brought it from a 5 to a 4. Who cares if the owner is playing favorites what about people just trying to have a family get together. Also helps if server had the order right to the head that was paying. Not impressed! More...

Love it. Every time my wife and I go there, the food is awesome. The service is always friendly and helpful, and the staff are attentive. If you love German cuisine, go to this place. They have been open since 1967, and I have been going there from childhood with my family, and now with friends. More...

First time here, tried the jaeger schnitzel with garden salad, cabbage soup, mac and cheese spaetzle, and the apple streusel with vanilla sauce.The ambience was nice, I really liked the theme of the place, as well as the uniforms. It's a pretty fun place to be. The positives: the chicken was juicy and tender and crispy. And the spaetzle was so good!!!! Will definitely go back for that! The cabbage soup was surprisingly delicious, (if you're a vegetarian I'd recommend not assuming their soups are vegetarian based off the title alone), and I loved the garden salad and their house dressing. The server mentioned it was house made and it's definitely worth a try if you're into creamy dressings!The negatives: To be frank the jaeger (which is just a mushroom sauce) wasn't very flavorful. Found it to be bland, the vanilla sauce with the streusel was also bland. We saw other guests around us also saying their food wasn't as good as usual. So maybe our first time was just a fluke or a bad batch. Our server was kind, but also seemed to be busy. Even if we did have a problem with our food we were too hungry to wait for her to finally notice that we needed or wanted to change our meal. We didn't want to be a bother. I'd probably come back again because it's the only German restaurant I know as of right now, but probably wouldn't get the jaeger sauce or the streusel in the future. More...

Nice place. Authentic decor. Very nice wait staff. Great German food. We had a very nice dinner. I could come here over and over.As we had gone there to celebrate my cousin's birthday I approached a member of the wait staff after dinner and asked to order a slice of Black Forest cake and asked if they could add a candle. We wanted to sing her Happy Birthday I said. So far so good. I made my way to the washroom and returned just in time to hear the other wait person explain to my cousin that they could not serve the cake order with a candle on it as it was the day before her birthday. So they were not serving my cake order at all is what was told to my cousin. A restaurant rule apparently. I was miffed. A wonderful evening undone over a 2¢ candle. Lord love a duck. I am from out of town. Where I live the wait staff would come back to the person ordering and explain why they can't fill an order. Especially if someone orders a little birthday surprise. Even the house manager would come by and ask what else they can do -where I live- to make the occasion special and memorable. Not here apparently. They just go to the birthday person and say sorry not delivering the other person's order as it's 3 hours before your birthday. Yep miffed is what I am.After the wait person left we sang my cousin Happy Birthday anyway. No need to waste money on dessert cake that breaks restaurant protocol. I just don't understand. At least this birthday will be memorable in its own way. More...

What a wonderful meal!  We arrived and order our drinks along with the pretzels and salami and cheese plate to start our meal!  The pretzels were delicious...served with a warm beer cheese!  The salami and cheese plate was served with delicious ham, salami and cheese!!!  We were a party of six and order the weiner schnitzel, the chicken cordon blue schnitzel, Hungarian Beef Goulash, and the Black Forest Platter!  All of the meals were outstanding!  We had with our meals....spatzle, German potatoe salad and red cabbage!  For dessert we had a mix of the Black Forest cake, chocolate torte, and the apple strudel!  All were tasty...but the winner was the warm apple strudel!!!  Such a fun place, with great food to spend an evening with great friends!!!

The food was very good and our waitress was fantastic! The only complaint we would make was towards the owner or restaurant manager. He seemed to be miserable and was barking out orders to his staff that was not appropriate. He should be thankful to have such hard working people working for him. My husband almost went up to him about his attitude, but we didn't want it to spoil our evening at the CCMA's. More...

Delicious. Large portions. Staff all in cute German attire. But caution, don't order soda. Beer or water only here, they found the smallest glasses in all of hamilton to serve soda in and charge 2.20 a mouthful. It's shocking as the Beer is quality and fairly portion and the food is more then most will be able to finish. Also my Bostian friend was sort of shocked that the house platter cake with pineapple. Odd choice. More...

I have been looking for a great German restaurant since I got out here. I have found it!! I am absolutely in love with this adorable and authentic little place. The servers were wearing very nicely themed German dresses and the hospitality was something you would get in a quaint little Bavarian town. The soup of the day was meatball and it was so good my husband ordered a second helping. It was was warm rich and full of flavour. It was very clearly made from scratch using quality ingredients. Very tasty.I had the Hollande (hope I got that correct) Schnitzel with fried potato's and ordered a side of the braised purple cabbage. It was pure bliss. The place is awesome. Come and eat here!
