Two couples with our friends wanting to go there based on recommendations from friends of theirs. We had eaten there probably two years ago on a promotion and were indifferent about it so we went along. Friday night music was quite good, though friends seemed somewhat bored with it. Two great guitar players well known on the bay. Other three... More

Dear Ec328888, thank you for taking the time to write about your experience in our restaurant. We are sorry that not everybody in your party had been satisfied. The chicken liver pate is served here in German tradition: with bread. However our chef Winfried thinks that your suggestion to serve it with crackers is a very good idea and we... More

There were four of us in our party. I had the schnitzel baden-baden which was crispy on the crust and tender inside. My husband had the fish which was very good and the mushroom sauce very yummy. He also had the french onion soup which was the best I've ever tasted. Our friends did not enjoy their Rheinischer Sauerbraten, and... More

We went with a group of friends after an all day outing on the ocean. The German food was cooked to perfection. The service was fine, actually everthing was great. If you are craving something for a change other than the typical Mexican fare, eat here. It is a five to ten minute walk from the bus, but easy to... More

The proprietors are German expats, and they brought recipes for schnitzl, etc., not otherwise known in these parts. They have a tasty musical duo of a Friday night. Prices a little high for La Cruz, but much lower than Bavaria.

My inlaws were all german and I lived in Germany and I can tell you this is authentic German food. Good prices and live music 1-2 times a week. We saw flamingo guitarists that were exceptionally good. Restaurant is open roof so stays cool and you can dine under the stars. good wine list

Description
We are located in La Cruz, just 15 minutes north of Puerto Vallarta and are a family-friendly restaurant offering a full-bar and a modern German menu emphasizing on freshness and quality. German cuisine means so much more these days than just sausage, sauerkraut and beer. Rather it reflects today's Germany with its distinctive medley of modernity and tradition.

The restaurants menu embodies this fusion of old and new with a fresh, modern twist to traditional meals for you to enjoy. Passionate about food, the Proprietors cook from their hearts and consider the restaurant an extension of their home. Each guest is treated as an invited guest to be impressed with the ambiance, service and most importantly a wonderful, memorable meal.

We hope you enjoy discovering more about this increasingly popular cuisine as you journey through their menu of foods and beverages from modern Germany.
