People were very nice!! Family atmosphere! The schnitzel (with onions and apples) was delicious !!! The plate was full as my belly at the end :D Might be better to book a table in advance, the restaurant is pretty busy and I understand why, really...good food for a reasonable price. If we had stay longer at Qualicum beach we would have come back for sure.More

We were there on July 31/21 for lunch from Nanaimo. We ordered two different schnitzels I only remember my schnitzel jaeger. Both of them were so delicious and the aroma with the wine you can smell them from so far away. We also had the...apple strudel with ice cream also was wonderful. Total came to $53.56 included tipping. For sure we will go there again even so far awayMore

We had a lovely meal here during our trip to Vancouver Island. It’s a small restaurant with a Bavarian theme. It is very busy so reservations are definitely recommended. There is a small patio for outdoor dining. We shared the tomato salad to start. It...was absolutely one of the best salads that I’ve had. The salad was very simple but just bursting with flavour. It consisted of tiny grape tomatoes, finely chopped onions and a lovely vinaigrette that was slightly sweet. Just delicious. For entrees my husband had the schnitzel with apples and blackberries and I had the schnitzel with peppercorn sauce. We both enjoyed our schnitzels. Me especially. Although my husband enjoyed his schnitzel he said that he would not order that particular schnitzel again as he felt that the blackberries and apples did not go well with the schnitzel. We shared an apple strudel for dessert. It was decent. The portions are very generous. The service was very good. Fast and efficient but we felt well taken care of. Would highly recommend black bird and would return on future trips to the island.More

Great authentic German food! Wide variety of schnitzel, good sized portions and served hot. Decor is a bit dated and cluttered, can be busy and loud. Not a place for a quiet intimate meal, but you won’t be disappointed with the food. Popular place so...be sure to make a reservation.More

Had a reservation and no waiting. Food was excellent, waiter polite and helpful. It was busy but did not wait too long for meal. Thoroughly enjoyed the meal and will be back another time. Good value for money.

My wife and I were in the Qualicum area and decided to have dinner at the Black Bird. Glad we did, both our meals were excellent, well made and using good food that made a good sized dinner that was tasty and hot. Service was...excellent and friendly and the beer and mixed drinks were good. Overall cost was a little pricey by today's standards but we left happy and will probably return. The staff and patrons also followed the COVID regs strictly.More

Had a wonderful time at Black Bird for dinner. Rahm Schnitzel and the Seafood Combo. The combo has a generous portion of Sslmon, Prawns and Scallops. Sides that accompany each dish very good as well. The service was excellent and you must have the Apple...Strudel for desert, whip cream and ice cream.More

We are first time visitors and actually got to sit inside during this unfortunate time of COVID. We were the only guests in the restaurant The owner served us and he was pleasant and helpful The food was great, nice large servings of schnitzel Well...cooked and seasoned We got both the spatzle and potatoes and they were done right Even though we were full we had to try the strudel, it was made by a local bakery and was a great ending to the meal Prices are extremely fair The only nit picking I have is that the chef keep looking out from the kitchen and not once did we see gloves a hat or a mask on him. I know it is not mandatory for chefs to wear masks but there is nothing wrong with being sanitary and careful especially in the eyes of clients. We will absolutely be back againMore

Excellent schnitzel and generous portions. We went Thanksgiving weekend, and my wife got the turkey schnitzel special, which was also very good. We shared the hor apple strudel for dessert, which i highly recommend. Probably the best schnitzel I've ever had, including Europe!

Fabulous food - perfect schnitzels and spaetzle for the adults and chewy big pretzels for the children. And a pleasant patio with excellent service. And don’t forget the apple strudel and chocolate torte
