The food is amazing, the owners are wonderful. There is good reason this is the number one restaurant on the island. For authentic German food this is a must try. Save room for dessert.

Finally, a real German restaurant. Charming, small, family-run. All the things you look for when exploring and looking for great food. Beer is cold and delicious, service was friendly and attentive. Don't skip dessert! Thank you Heidi and Co.!

Meal was excellent...Schnitzel & Potato pancakes! Good menu selection. Great German beer! Atmosphere was ok & service was very good. So nice to have something other than pizza, burger & tacos on the beach. Thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience.
