This is a German restaurant, so the portions are huge. We go here regularly as a family and their snitzel in cream and mushroom sauce is to die for. Service is good, perhaps a bit slow when full, ambiance good inside and outside, prices very reasonable and food fantastic.

We've passed this restaurant countless times and never been in and I don't know why because we loved it! Although catering to a mostly German audience , this more or less guarantees you will get great beer, tender steak, great pork steaks and snitzels and we did! The portions are big and we just had a main course each but... More

We have been using this restaurant for many years and have had some lovely food. Today, we were not impressed. I had a chicken and fruit salad which I have had many times and have always enjoyed. A large salad for about 10 euros. It includes grapes, melon, pineapple and other fruit in season. The grapes, pineapple and other bits... More

... But bring your German book if you are not German :-) Nice place, good food (huge portions!). Live music (yes, in German) is a great concept, unfortunately we found it was played much, much too loud. But otherwise recommended.

been just driving around and discovered this German restaurant - a lot of German specialties, great menu, extraordinary Andechser Doppelbock beer (but very pricey!), and friendly service. This house will stay on my list every time I'll be near that location!

Best food and the steaks are so good! One of the best steaks I ever had. Nice place and friendly staff. A bit outside of Denia at the Las Marinas.

The "season" was not in swing so numerous restaurants were not serving. We happened upon El Barril and were delighted to dine there. Germany is a favorite place for us after serving in the military there several years. So to find "authentic" and excellent Deutsch cuisine in Spain was a very pleasant surprise. The service was very good by the... More

If you like bacon on fish and roast potatoes this is the place for you. The food here is typically German but only average. We've given this place a few try's because it was recommended to us but we were disappointed.
