Der Metz is my choice when eating Schnitzel. It tastes just like what I have eaten in Switzerland. They do not scrimp on the potion size. Good German music in the background. They can get busy.

Good food, but a bit expensive. You can have more moderate options in the area. Bavarian themed. The steak and the caesar salad were good.

Went here with a German friend to celebrate her birthday. We were all excited as we had never had German food in Auckland before. We ordered 2 kids schnitzel meals, curry sausages, beef goulash with spaetzle and schnitzel. Food took around 35mins to come out....More

Had dinner here on a Friday night. So much to look at in the restaurant! (German "memorabilia" etc.). Good sized meals (the pork hock is something else!), and they know how to do a good wine pour! Go hungry, leave full!

Poped in with a kid, very tasty sausages, and kid's lasagna is very nice, too. German tap beer is a plus.
