One of the places that we always try to get to at least once during the season - Sunday nights dinner was outstanding as usual and we are so glad that we made it there early this year so hopefully we will be able to make a couple of more visits this summer. we have never had a bad meal here- the portions are so large we never have room for dessert have to take it home to enjoy later

The food is good and quite authentic south German food. My favourite is the Schnitzel Vienna art. It would be nice if there were also some vegetarian options. Nice patio and super friendly service. Can totally recommend the Old Black Forest.

A very nice little place, bright and inviting with a helpful, friendly staff.
Obviously features German food but has a few local favorites as well (excellent fish and chips btw). They are licensed, and have some amazing looking desserts.
The portions are large. Everyone at our table brought home left-overs.
I cannot imagine being able to eat my entire meal AND have dessert, but don't let that stop you from trying!
Really interested and attentive staff.
Only downside: they are only open for dinner. A reservation might be wise, especially around 5-6pm.
Yum! Can't wait to return!

Maybe my expectations are different; my thought on our visit to the Black Forest are less flattering than most.

If the price is to be moderate to high, there should be some veggies on the plate. Stringy deep fried onions don’t count, nor does the salad (which is kind of bland)

The other let down was the server and service. I don’t need a maiden in Hofbrau dress to get the German vibe but the jeans and t-shirt sort of gave the impression we were being served while painting the kitchen. (And the complete lack of personality didn’t help either)

The food was 1 out of three. Two left without having much to say about their schnitzels, while my main was fairly good (but again.. giant wads of spatzle yet lacking in veggie substance).

All this for a bit too much money, in an atmosphere more cafe than restaurant. Not memorable for any of the right reasons.

Not a place I would bother with again.

We ate dinner at the Old Black Forest Restaurant on our first night in Nova Scotia. Although we did not have reservations, they were able to fit us into a very busy evening. The food was really good, with huge portions, which was great since we were quite hungry after a long day of traveling.
