We have just returned from a less than salubrious dining experience at the Jaegerhaus Restaurant in Naples. We'd had high expectations, and looked forward to having some of our favorite German foods.
The first indication that things would not go well was the dining room itself. It's rather run-down and charmless, with insubstantial tables and chairs and no decor to speak of. Some
framed photographs are interesting, but are not shown to advantage on heavily painted walls. A small suit of armor(?) and a large cuckoo clock (not working) also seem dispossessed.
The lack of atmosphere could have been overlooked, however, if the food was authentic and well prepared. It was not; in most cases it was dreadful. On the plus side were the onion soup and garden salad with a light dressing that was simple but very refreshing. The red cabbage was also acceptable, if uninspired.
Things went downhill from there. The salmon was dry from overcooking and the noodles, which should have been slippery with butter, suffered from the same fate; overcooking resulted in a
sticky mass. The potato dumpling was inedible, a large grey lump of what tasted like a raw flour paste. The sauerbraten comprised thin slices of what kids like to call "mystery meat" slathered with a gummy gravy. It was essentially flavorless, not the lively commingling of sweet, sour and ginger that normally characterizes this hearty dish.
We were disappointed, to say the least, and did not linger for dessert.
P. S. My husband says the beer was good.
